Amazing value on a Sunday at Rajasthan Indian restaurant in King’s Lynn





With the current cost of living crisis affecting so many of us, we’re all searching for a bargain – so what’s not to like about a half-price Sunday evening out?

Yes, the Rajasthan Indian Restaurant and Takeaway in Railway Road, Lynn, offers food at half-price every weekend, meaning our popadoms, two starters, two mains, a side naan bread and a dessert came to just £28.15.

My wife and I didn’t even know about this Sunday offer before visiting, we were just fancied a curry and wanted to try somewhere new.

On entering, we were immediately greeted by a warm and friendly staff member, our wet umbrellas were taken and we were shown to our seats in what immediately felt like a cosy, intimate place.

After ordering a pint of Kingfisher lager and a Pinot Grigio for myself and Josi respectively, we enjoyed the traditional popadoms with mint sauce, mango chutney, red onion and salad (£2.70). All was fresh and tasty.

For my starter, I chose garlic chilli mushrooms (£2) which were lovely without being too filling and certainly packed a pleasant kick. Josi chose the mixed platter (£3) of kebabs and onion bhaji, loving the mix of flavours.

For our mains, we both decided to have something new to us and Josi said her mild and creamy chicken makhani dish (£5.50), cooked with yoghurt and coconut milk, was an ‘explosion of tastes’ and the accompanying mushroom rice (£1.75) was fluffy and well-flavoured. She found it a little too sweet towards the end but only left some of the sauce.

My vegetable dhansak (£5.50) was gorgeous, with a variety of spices coming through from the hot and sour lentil sauce, complemented by pilau rice (£1.50). I also chose a garlic naan (£2), which we shared. It was so light and fluffy, and just perfect for finishing off the sauce from Josi’s meal when I’d polished off mine!

That was it for Josi, but I was impressed to see a choice of 12 desserts and plumped for the Cadbury flake one (£3.95 – desserts are full price), which was an elegant glass filled with ice cream and chocolate sauce, with a flake in the middle.

In total our bill came to £39.05, but knock off the £10.90 for our drinks and you’re left with a real bargain.
