    The Kismet - Early evening bargain

    by Myfanwe Updated Feb 24, 2008

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Kismet is the ideal place to go just before pay day when the pennies are getting a bit thin on the ground. During the day, right up until early evening you can enjoy an eat all you like Indian buffet for £2.95, it's not bad either. For £2.95 you have a choice of rice, naan breads, a few different curry sauces to choose from, chicken on the bone & veggie dishes - you can also fill your plate up as many times as you like. You are also able to order a starter, main meal & rice off the menu for £6.95 which is very reasonable & the food is very nice too.

    Favorite Dish: Chicken tikka masssala.

    Juboraj: The Best Indian In Town

    by Myfanwe Updated Jul 24, 2009

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Juboraj is a chain of Indian Restaurants based in Cardiff. The food is always of a high standard here and there are a few different locations to choose from;

    Mill Lane - in the centre of town.
    Rhiwbina - North Cardiff.
    Lakeside - Roath Park.
    Juboraj Express take away in North Road.

    My favourite restuarant is the one in Lakeside, it is situated right next to Roath Park lake, it's a fantastic location & is a really nice place to go for a special occasion.

    Favorite Dish: Chicken Jalfrezi

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Radhuny's is situated about 10 mins walk from the centre of town. It is an extremely popular restaurant & is by far one of my favourites. Here you can order a starter, main course, rice & naan bread for an astonishing £5.95 - great value & the food is really nice.

    Favorite Dish: My favourite dish is the Chicken chat - Mmmmmmm!

    Gateway of India: Hot Indian food

    by uglyscot Updated Nov 24, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The restaurant is in a quiet north-western suburb of Cardiff on a main road. There is parking available for clients of the restaurant. It looks very clean but I have not actually been inside*.
    There is a take-away service and a dining area with nibbles while you wait.
    The day we moved house a neighbour had a meal sent from the restaurant. There was enough to feed half a dozen adults. Many of the dishes were HOT and I don't know what they were called, but all was devoured.
    The owner is very pleasant and friendly.

    I've since discovered that this restaurants has won several awards:
    Best takeaway Food in Cardiff 2004
    Welsh Silver Food Hygiene Award Dec 2008 *
    Small Business of the month [South Wales Echo] Nov 2008

    Opening hours:
    Daily 3pm -10.30 pm except Monday
    Sunday 5pm-10.30pm , open on bank holidays

    Favorite Dish: I liked the onion bahjis , the popadums and some of the less hot chicken and rice dishes. If it were not for the hot spices I would rate this one of the best Indan meals I've tasted, and my fellow diners certainly ate everything with gusto.

    Kismet Restaurant: 2.95 for Indian Buffett!!

    by jhorsfield30 Written Jun 2, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The only thing that could possibly match Kismet's £2.95 all-you-can-eat buffet in terms of satisfaction levels, would probably be a £2.95 all-you-can-watch German pornathon.
    They have a wide selection of other delights on the menu.

    Be Warned, the meat is chicken on the bone, more like drumsticks, however, being a vegetarian, I have no problems simply enjoying the curry sauce, which there are about 9 different curries, rice, naan brean, lovely steamed vegetables, potatoes.
    Excellent Value for money.

    Favorite Dish: Korma - Has a lovely texture and depth to the flavour.
    Tarka Dhall - Excellent mix of foods to combine to give your tastebuds a thrashing

    "Vegetarian Food Studio": Excellent Indian Vegetarian Food

    by aaaarrgh Written May 3, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The 'Vegetarian Food Studio' is only a short walk from Cardiff Central Railway Station. It serves a wide variety of Indian food (including some Southern Indian specialities). You can also stock up on a colourful selection of burfi (indian sweets made with condensed milk). The restaurant is not a typical British-ified multicioloured asian restaurant, but instead is cafeteria style, more similar (I am told) of restaurants in India.

    My favorite dishes are the Dosa pancakes (which I don't come across too often) though the potato curry filing can be very ..erm ...filling. And there's nothing better than a mango lassi to wash everything down.

    The restaurant does not serve alcohol but, if you bring your own beer or wine the proprietors are quite happy for you to drink it, for a modest 'corkage' payment of £1.

    I believe the restaurant is open 7-days a week until about 10pm in the evening.

    Mowgli's: One From The Jungle book!!

    by Balam Written Mar 26, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Just back from another trip to South Wales and I just have to share this fantastic restaurant with everybody, We went under recommendation from Vicki's work Colleague and we were certainly glad we did, It was Lovely and i have not eaten so much for ages.
    The food was really really good, of a very high standard and as well as the usual Indian Restaurant dishes there are a lot of really new and unique ones. I thought it would be hard to choose but i decided quite quickly as some things caught my eye and i just decided to go with them than keep looking as there ids a very good chance, or more of a certainty really that we will be visiting again soon soon!

    Its in a student area so there are lots of fast food places and restaurants around offering all kinds of foods but clientele, because although it was a Tuesday evening there were quite a few people in was mixed and friendly making a nice atmosphere.
    Service was excellent, we ordered drinks while choosing our food but declined on the Popadoms and chutneys offer as we were quite taken by the selection of Starters and I find that Popadoms can fill you up a bit so i only have one or the other.

    I chose Mowgli's Special Kebab to start while Vicki went with her old favorite of Chicken Chat, The special Kebab was very nice and a bit of a mixture between a shami kebab and bubble and squeak! I recommend it.

    For main course i Ordered Piri Piri Xacutti which was very nice, described as a Bhuna sauce with a portuguese twist it had a lot of really nice flavours and was nice and spicy. Vicki had Chicken Dhansak, I tried a bit and that was lovely as well.

    Not having been before we were unsure of the rice sizes so we ordered rice each, Spinach rice and Special Rice as well as a Chilli and Garlic Naan, While one portion of rica and a naan would have been enough they were all really tasty and so we managed to fit them in (Just).
    We did not have any desert as by this time we were well and truly stuffed.
    I look forward to our next visit!

    The Spice Route: All Asian food

    by uglyscot Written Nov 17, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The restaurant is in the Red Dragon Centre alongside other elegant looking restaurants. We were seated indoors as it was evening. The service was good. The food is buffet style, so customers go the buffet area, take a plate and choose the food desired. There is no restriction as to how many times you can help yourself. There is a salad area, Indian starters like samosas, bahjiis etc, another side with hot dishes , rice and roast chicken. Then the noodle section is busy with dishes with shrimps, mushrooms, onions, chicken, beef and other things. Take a plate and put on noodles and then add the chosen selected dishes. Your dish will then we fried in a wok in front of you, and you decide whether to have the dish medium or spicy.
    Then there is a selection of desserts- if you have any room for them.

    Favorite Dish: Impossible to choose. Everything was great.

    The Spice Merchant: Great Curry

    by percy961 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A great place to go for a Curry in the heart of Cardiff Bay. The place has a vast menu and the food is very good. It does tend to get busy on Friday and Saturday nights so it is advisable to book.
