We found the little door to the Asia Restaurant just off the corner of Mostyn Street, up a lot of stairs (no lift apparently so you have to be able to climb to first floor) and sat at a table by the window overlooking the corner of the main street and the sea to our left – including the expansive wind farm out in the distance.
We always start with papadums (their spelling) and chutneys rather than a starter, with a better selection than usual here. Best way to judge a new Indian restaurant for me is to try their Chicken Tikka Massalla and in this case, I tried their Kashmiri Pilau rice with nuts and dried fruit – very tasty (sorry no photos this time). In fact, it was one of the best Pilau rice dishes I have had, and I would have it on its own just with the Massalla sauce another time.
Leslie tried their Chicken Tikka Biriyani with a Madras strength sauce (too hot for me!) and said it was a good version, especially the sauce. It is generally a reasonable price at Indian restaurants, although the rice is usually extra to the main dish, but it was a good final price of £30.20 for both of us, including a glass of wine and a lager so we were very happy. Overall, it has a nice friendly atmosphere, good staff, and is an ideal location in the middle of this popular North Wales sea-side town.
