(2010-12-15) I have been eating at Khana Khazana for almost five years, but there never seem to be any other diners in the restaurant when I am there.
There is absolutely no atmosphere, and the decoration is very garish, with plastic flowers and plants, and it makes you wonder how it has kept going for so long.
It has to be the food which keeps them in business, and the curries have to be some of the best I have ever tasted. Khana Khazana does not only serve curries though, but Chinese and Continental food as well.
It certainly is not the service either, which is slow and the waiters untrained. The starters usually come after the main course has been eaten, or some diners even get their food only when everyone else at their table has finished eating.
The boneless butter chicken which two of my party had was pronounced the best they had ever had.
The basmati rice which was ordered with the chicken came to the table steaming hot. The Goan Fish Curry and the Jheenga (prawns) Tandoori are all to be recommended as is my particular favourite, the Achari Paneer Tikka, the home made cheese served with onions and chips.
The naan breads are freshly made as well.
Main courses are served in little copper bowls, and the prices are reasonable for the quality of food you are served.
The wine list is very basic with not much to recommend, just the usual Boschendal and not much else, but then curries should be eaten with a beer. There is also an extensive take away menu, and the good news is that they do deliver and are open 7 days a week!
