Went a week or so ago and had the most incredible meal. The dish that really did it was the crab soup - which was a blinding starter - cleverly chosen by my wife. Great stock, so very much a skilful, diligent chef behind this dish. I had a chicken starter which was fine but overshadowed - like a pretty temple in the shadow of the Taj Mahal. So I'm very grateful to my wife for her generosity in the soup dept. Lovely meltingly fresh crab. And generally very good - crisp, fluffy, fragrant parathas. In case I sound like someone who knows the owner (rather than what I am, which is gobsmacked) I would add that the service was rather chaotic and on the slow side, despite the fact that the place was chocful of waiters. There were several polishing the leaves on the flower arrangements (poetic licence employed) despite the fact that we were waiting many ravenously long minutes for drinks, menus, etc. The manager/owner was lovely though and I'm sure he'll sort this out. It's the food that matters and I'd recommend you try it.

We finally got around to trying this place yesterday evening and were delighted with our experience. Absolutely delicious - and the flavours were different enough to help Neo India stand out from the other Asian restaurants in the triangle. The Crab Soup was particularly good :P Also, as the dishes are cooked with olive oil rather than ghee we didn't feel unpleasantly over-stuffed as you can do after an indian meal.

Great service too. This place has jumped into our top 5 restaurant slots for the triangle, if you haven't tried it yet I urge you to.

A friend and I went again to Neo India yesterday evening and had another great meal. She had a red snapper starter that she raved about and we both had very good mains, mine was chicken fillets with almonds and pistachios in a spicy sauce - delicious!

The food really is quite something here and different enough from other restaurants in the triangle to carve its own well deserved niche. We had a chat with the charming owner who spoke about the freshness of the food he sourced and explained that his plan was gradually to introduce more Mauritian dishes, including a fair bit of seafood - so watch this space! :)

Ate at Neo India last night. Wonderful. I didn't order the crab soup as thought it would just be a spicy crab bisque type thing. It was in fact a whole crab in a delicious soup base! Although my mussels mulligatawny were pretty good, I was very jealous of my husband's starter. Side dish of pumpkin cooked with bay leaf was delicious and good to see a seasonal veg on the menu. Service was charming and efficient. Nice atmosphere. Very very pleased by this addition to the triangle

I can't wait for them to print their takeaway menus, still doing takeaways but no menu so had to put it on hold till another time.
Sounds like a great place though.

(P.S. Not too sure I approve of all this crab eating.)

Hi,
Glad to read that we were able to please your palates. I apologise for the lack of attention from my waiting staff upon your arrival, but I am pleased to announce that this problem has now been resolved. The remedy was quite simple really. A single crack of the whip did the trick!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Look forward to seeing you again soon.
Kind regards.

Maybe you should suggest one or two organic main courses. I understand that it would be far to expensive to offer 100% organic on all meats, but a bit would make him the first in the triangle to offer organic meat dishes. Might be worth a try. Of course they would be pricier than the non-organic ones, but people might be willing to pay that....


Hi there,
You will be glad to learn that our menu already consist of one organic main dish, which is the Nirmish. Organic vegetables cooked with turmeric and green spices.
We were very keen to introduce organic venison, but our searches have indicated that venison is only available as free range. So free range venison it will be, in the very near future and organic meat or poultry.
Watch this space.
Kind regards.
Neo India.
