Situated on High Street in the historic Hertfordshire market town of Berkhamsted is Fat Buddha, an authentic Indian Restaurant that serves to tantalise the taste buds with a range of exquisite South Asian flavours.
Perfect appetite whetting dishes are the Fat Buddha starters, where the chilli chicken makes for an exquisite tongue warming delicacy, and the Jhinga garlic starter, glorious king prawns cooked in tandoori with a hint of garlic and mint, offers up a tasty alternative that isn’t quite as fiery. These are just two of an extensive list of appetisers that work with the expected Indian favourites of the samosa, onion bhaji and chicken tikka, to create a mouth-watering list of starters that start the experience with style.
Moving forward to the main event, recommended options from the main course selection come in the form of the Fat Buddha favourites and Fat Buddha popular plates – where the jalfrezi is available for those experienced in all things curry, and where the korma provides a fabulous mild alternative for the more sensitive palates.
The Chef’s Specials, such as the methi murgh, chicken breasts simmered in turmeric, fenugreek and mild Indian spices, the Achari, the customer’s choice of meat cooked in a medium spiced sauce with Indian pickle, and the mila gosht, tender pieces of lamb braised in spices with a subtle touch of sweet and sour, give eager patrons a peek into the mind of the culinary master. Traditionalists will not be disappointed either, as there are also an array of Tandoori and Biryani plates from which to choose.
