Thank you Grasshopper and all those that have commented so far!

Those that know Tricia and I will be aware that we are always on the lookout for somewhere different to eat out. Following recommendations from three different friends and acquaintances, we set off last night for Mandouki to sample what was on offer at 'The Tandoori Bites' Indian restaurant.

If approaching Corfu Town along the Port road, you turn off onto the slip road that runs parallel towards Mandouki. The Tandoori Bites is about the first place there.

I will start by saying that our meals were the best Indian food that we have eaten in Corfu! The menu is modest but full of delicious dishes. We thought this was good as all food is cooked to order and could be problematic if they were very busy.

We started with Papadoms with Rahita, Mango Chutney and a mint sauce dips. We followed up with Vegetable Samosas and Onion Bhajis. For main courses we settled for Madrasi hot pot chicken, Chicken Tikka Masala accompanied by a Vegetable and Egg Fried Rice. Everything was well presented and delicious. As a bonus, all were very good value.

Considering that it was a Saturday night, they weren't over busy and there were no long delays between courses. I fear that might change were they to be very busy as there is only the owner and one other in the kitchen.

We found the owner, Deepak Chand, very personable and passionate about his food. He is hoping to remain open during winter. We certainly hope that he does.

By the time that we eventually left, there had also been four tables of Greeks and another table of British. Everyone seemed to be enjoying the experience. We certainly did and will return. Highly recommended. We also managed to recruit Deepak to this forum, although only the Facebook version!!

As well as the website mentioned by Grasshopper, they also have a Face book page here:https://www.facebook.com/thetandooribites/

I really miss Indian food and although there have been some opportunities to eat it in Corfu during all the years of my residence here, they have never quite hit the mark for me. In fairness there have been some worthy attempts, both commercial and private. I remember Bryn's restaurant with affection!
But, I was very very impressed with the food at The Tandoori Bites, and with the smiling, courteous service. The flavours were delicious and subtle. Others have described the food in detail, so I will just say - even the house wine, white, was delicious, bot the usual 'plonk'!
I can't wait to go again and I really do urge you to try it out.

After the superb food, what rounded the evening off for me was the little dish of fennel seeds in sugar casings! A bit like sugared almonds but using fennel seeds. So delicious and something that I have never had before, anywhere!

A really authentic touch,  which was always on offer in our local restaurants in Hounslow and Southall.   Also in friends houses when you were offered spicy snacks.
