Tonight we (myself and the better half) decided to spontaneously eat out for the night, we had no idea what cuisine we wanted but decided that Indian food is always a good shout. We took to TripAdvisor to find local Indian restaurants and Mayur, a fine dining Indian restaurant came up as one of the highest rated in Liverpool. After a quick look at the menu and a few visitor pictures we decided it was the one.
We arrived without booking a table and was quickly seen to and sat down at a table, feeling exotic we both decided to order a Coke to drink. Scanning through the plentiful menu I was tempted by a range of foods that I hadn’t even heard of before but I decided to play it safe with the classic Chicken Tikka Massala with pilau rice, a garlic naan and poppadoms to start (just a light bite then…right?!).
The food arrived promptly and was nicely presented, the poppadoms to start were served with three chutneys – mint, mango and another which I was unsure of but it was tasty nonetheless (the pink/red one), then the main arrived not long after our starter which was presented in square dishes as seen in the pictures, the curry was tangy and tomato-rich with a hint of spice but not enough that it was overpowering. The pilau rice was served with crispy, fried onion pieces which worked well and gave a slight crunch to the rice.
We both enjoyed the meal and the surroundings inside the restaurant, the food was lovely and the prices were on point for a fine dining restaurant. Mayur is also partnered with Milapfest – an Indian arts development trust, thus a £1.00 donation was added to the bill which we were happy to give to the good cause. Overall, I would recommend visiting this restaurant if you are in the market for an Indian fine dining experience and I would be happy to visit again.
PS – the personalised chocolates were a nice touch at the end of the meal!
