Khushi’s have been in Bank Street, Mid Calder, for years. The whitewashed restaurant does not look the most inviting from the street, and the green refuse bin was a tad off putting near the front door, but many have said how good it is but for one reason or another I’ve not been before. My loss.
It is easy to find, there is plenty of space in the surprisingly big restaurant, and the food is good.
The lighting could be improved and the service could do with sharpening. For example, we received our hot plates around five minutes before the food, but it did not detract from the fact that my South Indian lamb curry was one of the best I’ve tasted.
It was selected from a menu which has something to suit most tastes and it details food suitability with colour symbols for those with allergies. Nice touch.
The coconut milk, mustard seeds, spices and curry leaves dish contained a subtle taste of mustard and the flavours blended superbly. The garlic and coriander nan blended well as did the pilau rice which was cooked to perfection.
Pam’s choice was a chicken tikka Jaipuri. The smooth taste and the subtle mix of spices made this a superb dish.
We did not know but this is a bring your own booze restaurant. I was driving to a soda and lime was fine, but other diners arrived with their carry out, some having purchased it from the mini-market next door.
So, we’ll be back and you should try this restaurant. Prices are good and we both dined for less than £30. And, for convenience, they also have a takeaway and delivery service.
