Found on Sherwood Park Avenue in the London suburb of Sidcup, Ehsan is a delightful Indian restaurant that provides all who enter with some good, honest fare in a relaxed environment.

Freshly cooked food of tantalising flavour combines with a superbly attentive team of wait staff to make for the ideal environment for spending time with loved ones.

The experience is to be enhanced for tastecard members, who are able to partake in anything found on the Ehsan a la carte menu at a superb discount when they call in advance with their card, giving them the perfect excuse to enjoy a little extra, be it a further course or another tipple or two.

Beginning with one of the exquisite appetisers, such as the scrumptious king prawn butterfly, the traditional favourite that is the onion bhaji or the flavoursome lamb tikka, diners can consider their appetite suitably whetted for any of the mouth-watering mains to come, in which, each end of the spice spectrum is hit with ease. Particularly noteworthy examples of such can be seen in the divine Bengal lobster, a Goan dish that is infused with coconut and a range of herbs and spices, the murgh lemon, chicken marinated in medium spices and cooked with fresh lemons, tomato and ginger, and the delectable mixed vegetable curry.

For those averse to the curry, a tasty barbecue coated chicken Maryland, a lip-smacking fried chicken number and a gratifying mushroom omelette are readily available, resulting in many a taste being catered for at Ehsan.
