My son, who lives in Dublin, sent me pics of these two "curries" :sick:

This was meant to be a Vindaloo.

And this was a Butter Chicken. He said they were both foul & not as good as yours Dad.Well, that's a relief then.

Dearie me, butter chicken does look abysmal, were they from a T A Pauly?, Kind of sums up the bir state of affairs doesn't it, that's why were all here doing it our selves and to be honest it serves them right in my opinion, spleen vented!!!!, Arrr that's better :yahoo:

I like the description Chickenbhoona, :lol:

Seriously gents, for a professional chef to serve that up is reprehensible, whether they don't care or know any better I'm not sure. It was a TA from a restaurant Mark.

When my son comes home I usually make him BI's Vindaloo with an extra teaspoon of ground red chillis that we buy whole from a Chinese shop Vindaloo this sort of thing.

Sad state of affairs with what they charge, this would be around €30. I know you can't judge the flavour from a pic but when it looks this awful, I know I wouldn't fancy trying it.

That is probably the most rancid looking butter chicken I have seen online (not ever having ordered one from a TA in real life). Are you sure it is not burnt spam in tomato soup with some milk added? The Vindaloo could just about pass as a home style student curry having a bad day, but both the sauces look very watery to me. The Vindaloo also looks like it was padded out with too much veg. I dread to think what the white bits on the chicken are - fat, gristle or bone? For the money, a complete rip off.

OK, the curries might not be too good, but it sure is the place for good Guinness.
