The Indian Queen, is my father-in-laws local. Its basically a working men's club with a great Indian grill restaurant situated upstairs. The bar and eating area are always busy when we visit. Tables of guys eating, drinking and watching football.
The mixed grill sizzlers are a great way to try a selection of the grilled/ tandoor cooked meats. The Indian Queen serves simple home style food cooked well.
We opted for a takeaway on Friday night, as we were watching football on TV.
The baby chicken, cooked in the tandoor. The charred taste from the tandoor is one of the best flavours
Chicken wings, again cooked in the tandoor.
Shell on prawns, I don't know what goes into these but its pure magic. Its an "Indo-Chinese" flavour. I am sure there is soy sauce, garlic, ginger, onions and tamarind in there. I will just have to ask for the recipe I think!
Tandoori lamb chops.
We also ordered a lamb curry and naans. The best way to enjoy the dishes is mix and match them, garnish with side salad with the simple s and crack open an ice cold beer.
This place is a real hidden gem.
