November meeting - Shah Manzil, Liss

The table is booked!  Our November meeting will be on Tuesday 8th November at the Shah Manzil restaurant, 73 Station Road, Liss, close to the level crossing.  Aperitifs will be at the Whistlestop from about 7 pm and then dinner will be at 8 pm.

We haven't eaten at this restaurant under its current ownership. After a particularly rubbish evening in 2007 we scrubbed it from the list. At the time it was called Saaki, and we had no idea how it could class itself as a restaurant.  

I took a solo trip to try it out last week.  It's family run, brightly lit, fairly busy even midweek, and I was very pleased with my choices:

Mixed starter including samosa, onion bhaji, seekh kebab,chicken tikka and a piece of fried paneer
Lamb Anari Bakra (lamb cooked with hot spice and crushed red chillis), Hydrabadi Palak Dal (yellow lentils, cumin, garlic, spinach), pilau rice and a naan

Please let me know as soon as possible if you plan to attend, either using the feedback form on the web site or by responding to the email notice sent to members.  

Here's a Google Maps link:

Hope to see you on Tuesday 8th!

October meeting - Gurkha Durbar, Grayshott

The table is booked!  Our October meeting takes place in Grayshott on Tuesday 11th at the Gurkha Durbar.  Aperitifs will be at the Fox and Pelican from about 7 pm, and then dinner is booked for 8 pm just up the road. 

We had a great visit there in June and had planned to go back in November.   We’ve had to switch. Our plan was Shah Manzil in Liss in October but it’s closed on Tuesdays. We’ll figure out a date later. 

We need to give the restaurant as good an estimate of numbers as possible by Monday at the latest but an early reply is very helpful.   Please reply as soon as possible to the e-mail notice sent to members or use the feedback form on our web site.  There's lots of parking in Grayshott including at the F&P, and three public car parks, as well as on the street.

Looking forward to a great evening on Tuesday 11th!
