Asia Dining Review – St Albans

I recently had an anniversary to celebrate and after moving to Hertfordshire, was set on eating out in an Indian restaurant. I’m not sure why but there doesn’t seem to be many reviews for restaurants in Hertfordshire so I really had no choice than to just follow my instincts and choose a restaurant. There really isn’t that many restaurants near me so I made reservations and travelled to St Albans to eat at Asia Dining.

Upon arriving in St Albans there isn’t much parking surrounding Asia Dining and it’s a shame they don’t have a parking area at the rear. We went on a Tuesday evening so it wasn’t really busy; the staff was welcoming and very prompt and efficient. The speed of service was also very good.

The food
We ordered Punjabi Swordfish with Mustard and Honey and my partner ordered Mango and Papaya Spring Roll as our starters. The Swordfish wasn’t very nice and I had to leave it; it was really bland and didn’t taste like it had been marinated. The Mango and Papaya Spring Roll was delicious; it was a very different starter that we wouldn’t normally go for but in this case it was well worth it.

For the main course we ordered Dhaba Ghost, Sag Aloo, Chicken Rogan Josh with Naan bread and a small portion of rice. We washed is all down with a lovely Mango Lassi. The Dhaba Ghost was very spicy and we found it very hard to finish, the Sag Aloo was very nice as I wouldn’t normally have spinach with potatoes. The Rogan Josh was very tasty as was the Naan Bread. As always we ordered too much food and had to take it home with us. It was still just as nice the following day and even the Naan Bread was still soft and edible.

I would definitely recommend Asia Dining in St Albans to all my friends and family as the service was excellent and so was the food, the only inconvenience would have to be the lack of parking.
