Lee Tandoori Lee on The Solent
Nice and Spiced!
What has been missing from the Grubgang site is reviews of Indian restaurants. This is mainly chief reviewer Clairs fault (apologies Grub gang fans!) as she unfortunately doesnt like spicy food, making the other Grub gang members lives a bit difficult choosing venues sometimes!! Luckily, Gemma dosent give up easily and took us all to Lee Tandoori along the seafront in Lee On The Solent.
It may not appear as much from the outside, but never judge a book by its cover!! The inside is quite spacious and decorated tastefully, with friendly, welcoming staff on hand. It was a quiet evening being a wednesday which meant we pretty much had the staff to ourselves! The menu was fantastic for any curry lover and although limited on the non spicy alternatives, had tasty noodle dishes which were perfect for a picky eater!! The starters went down quite well, Mike really enjoyed the Fish kebab as well as Clairs special chicken soup (which was a little too sweet for her liking- told you shes picky!)
The popadoms were lovely and went down even better with the accompliment dips! The naan bread were a little oily and like popadoms in texture, not light and fluffy as you would expect in an Indian restaurant.
The main meals also went down well, the currys being very tasty as mentioned by the spice lovers in the group. Clair was impressed with the chicken noodles and chips, which were not spicy in the slightest and was satisfied she had had a tasty meal. The staff were very helpful and had noted that the soup had not gone down well with Clair, offering to find her an alternative if she wished and were also quite jovial with the group, making us feel at ease. No desserts were on the menu, so the bill came easily within the £20 limit and worth every penny. The gang were very impressed with this Spicy retreat. Thankyou Gemma for your choice!
