I was in Southall last week with the family and decided to pop in to TKC's for a quick spot of lunch. It was midday and although the place was packed with staff, we were the only customers.
TKC's decor is a mish mash of style and you could see various parts of the restaurant had been refurbished at different times. We were taken to our seats and handed our menus. I requested a baby seat for our toddler which the waiter said he would get before vanishing! Ten minutes later he popped up again to take our order before vanishing again! Eventually we managed to get one of the other waiters to get the baby chair for us.
The menu was large and set out in a nice simple format, the prices were reasonable especially for the Southall area. We ordered a Lamb Jalfrezi, Kebab Roll, Plain Rice, Taka Dhal and Chicken Biriyani and some soft drinks.
The soft drinks were served 10 minutes after the order was taken and the cans were still lukewarm. But even if they were ice cold, they would have been lukewarm by the time the food turned up! After 15 minutes or so the Kebab Roll was served, it was getting cold so my sister started to eat it, just as she was finishing it the rest of the food arrived!
The food was fantastic, the lamb was nice and soft and the spices complemented the the meat very well. The taka dhal was a nice consistency, not too watery and had a nice kick to it. The biriyani was lovely, not too spicy with the chicken pieces just the right size and the portion was huge!
Overall the food was fantastic but the service was terrible. The fact they had so many staff on duty made it even more puzzling as to why we had to wait so long for our food. I'd hate to be eating there when it was busy! If you have the patience the food is well worth the wait!
Allow me to introduce my company to you. Chaudhry's TKC formerly known as Tandoori Kebab Centre was established in 1965. It was formed to cater for the Anglo Indian Community who had just arrived from British India, who had acquired the taste for Asian cuisine and for the Indians and Pakistanis who were arriving in the UK from the Indian Sub Continent.
