|The nice terrace behind Golden Tikka|
|The interior is clean and stylish - but lacks some pictures on the wall and other décor to give it a more homely feeling|
|The lunch menu is limited, but interesting - which is perfect for a beginner like myself.|
|While we were waiting for the beers we could quench our thirst in water brought to the table without even having asked for it. Several restaurants in Prague could learn from that detail.|
We didn't have to wait too long, before our food was brought to the table by a smiling waiter, once more apologizing for the misunderstandings with the lunch menu later than 15.00:
|My Kuřecí menu / Non-vegetarian Menu|
|BF's Chicken Tikka Masala Menu|
BF's Chicken Tikka Masala Menu looked simpler - there was one item less on the plate. But the pieces of chicken were nicely marinated and larger than mine - and there was more meat in his portion, probably explaining the higher price. His food was warmer than mine. Like I have said earlier, I am no expert in Indian food, and I am really not sure what to expect from a Chicken Tikka Masala. But I tasted Golden Tikka's version, and I liked it a lot. It was mory spicy than my chicken dish, actually a lot more. But still my taste buds weren't killed by it (BF was full after eating 2/3 of it, so I had a nice sample), and once more, my raita would probably had been able to put out the fire, had it been too strong.
We were both quite happy with our (late) lunch, and I'll definitely be back - probably later this week. Maybe the hardcore Indian food aficionados will find the food to mildly spiced. On the other hand, BF can eat chili sauce as if it were ketchup, and he was satisfied. So I would recommend the place. The lunch is good value for money, and the dinner menu also won't ruin you. And for the service, I felt comfortable and well taken care of.
Our bill for the 2 menus + 4 Pilsner Urquell was a total of Czk. 420,- before tips.
