Restaurant review: Sathiyams

Indian restaurants here generally annoy me. When my colleagues go ‘ooh I would love to go for a curry!’, my first reaction is always ‘blech!’ Okay, I confess, I get a tad toffee-nosed about it, being a desi and all but believe me when I say this: it ain’t authentic.

The joints that serve authentic grub are usually packed to the rafters with true-blue South Indians who know their idli from their vada and as a result, service is normally pathetic. On one memorable occasion, the waiter-type bloke almost took my plate away when I was just a little over half-way through stuffing my face!

So imagine my surprise when I walked into a restaurant 1. that looked real decent – proper decor and all 2. served real decent grub 3. this takes the cake, is in East Ham!! So, if you want to eat proper Indian, then I have no qualms in suggesting Sathiyams – great food, fantastic value for money.
