Indie Spice | Review

Indie Spice | Review

Last week was my unofficial work party, the big one is in January, and we went out for a lovely meal in Swords.
The ladies of the store chose to go to Indie Spice for dinner, an Indian restaurant in Swords Village. Now I have never, ever had Indian food before and you do hear stories of Indian food going straight through people so I was quite nervous. I was also kinda scared that I  wouldn’t know what to get to eat. They had the menu in work a few days before hand so we could have a wee look at it so that wasn’t too bad. I’d been shopping with my mum the day before and she bought Tikka Masala for us to have during the week so I went with that.
When we got there it turned out we had a different menu in work than the one we were paying for. So we requested that menu and boy was there much more choice on it. I just went for Onion Bhajee as my started and then my Tikka Masala. It was actually so nice. Onion Bhajees in my opinion are nice crispy onions and they were so delish. As for the Tikka Massala, it was sooooo good but I just couldn’t finish it because I was so hungry when I got to the restaurant and filled up on poppadoms (which were so good). When we were served our meal we got some potatoes and spinach which were a nice addition as well as the basmati pilau rice. The dessert options were Baileys cheesecake or vanilla ice cream. I don’t like cheesecake so I went for the ice cream which was yummy. Why is it ice cream in a restaurant is always better than anything you buy in the shops? Our ice cream had a long stalk of brown spaghetti sticking out of it… now that I didn’t quite understand.
Some of the ladies got Baileys or Vodka after the meal. I kinda tuned out for that bit but I think it may have been complimentary. 
But anyway all that was €29.95,
I also had a Long Island Iced Tea which cost me €7.95.
I must say it’s a long time since I’ve ever been at a restaurant where the staff were so polite and obliging AND the food being so good at the same time. I’m already looking forward to going back. 
What restaurants have you been to that you suprisingly loved?
Let me know in the comments.
All my love,
