Lemon Tree Indian Restaurant – London Sydenham

I don’t know why I don’t go to more Indian restaurants. I LOVE CURRY. It’s my ultimate favourite dish and when I smell curry I feel I need to eat loads of it. 😀
Miss Pinky and Mr Picky hadn’t seen me for a very long time (well it isn’t that long). All of us have been really busy, and it was about time I made a visit to meet Mr Picky’s mother (that’s right, I met his mother)… Anyway, let’s not get into that story!
After the little visit, it was decided we would eat out and I left it to both Miss Pinky and Mr Picky to choose the place to eat. They chose Lemon Tree as it’s one of their favourites. That’s ok with me! I love Indian food. XD

Ok, it took me a little while to decide what to eat as I wanted something not too spicy but filling enough to completely finish.

First I chose the chicken pakoras. They are my absolute favourite starters. I could eat loads of these but I know I shouldn’t. When they came out I thought they looked like onion bhajis, but I smelt them and they definitely did not smell of onions! They were absolutely delicious. I could have had more of these!!

I think this is Miss Pinky’s tandoori chicken leg. She liked it. I don’t know what it tastes like.

I forgot whose main dinner this was. I think it’s Mr Picky’s lamb rogan josh. I can tell why he liked this because it was very sweet but also very spicy!

I forgot what Miss Pinky ordered but it was very spicy!!

Forgot what this is…

This is part of my chicken biriyani. Tastes good!

This is the chicken biriyani sauce that came with it. It wasn’t too spicy and it had loads of vegetables in it. I think this is what I needed on a Friday night!!

This is some sort of spinach Miss Pinky ordered… not sure what it is. I didn’t try it. ¬_¬

But I did taste the naan bread!! Wow, I have not tasted naan bread like these before. They tasted nice, hot and sweet! Sweet naan bread… I would have these again if I came back to this place. 😀

Now these are the onion bhajis. ^_^

Can’t remember the exact cost came to, but it was definitely over £60. Around £20ish per person including drinks.

My geeky rating: 5/5

Good points:
– Good service
– Brilliant food, but you might have to wait as they take a little long to prepare
– Not too expensive… reasonable pricing

Bad points:
– A bit on the slow side
– A bit cramped with the seating
