Omi's Restaurant in Southall
Nestled away in the back streets of Southall lives Omi's restaurant. This little gem has been around since the late 70's and has gone from strength to strength, remaining a firm family favourite in my household. The restaurant itself is practically unrecognisable from its early days, but the food I have been told on good authority has remained second to none. Evolving from a small taba (Indian cafe) style eatery, it now boasts seating for 80, air conditioning and external party catering too.
In the 70's
On a family dinner out the choice suspects from the menu include Tava Lamb, Butter Chicken, Sizzling Paneer and Fish Curry - not forgetting lots of butter Naan. As well as an extensive menu of starters, mains (both vegetarian and meats) and desserts, they are fully licensed and stock a wide range of spirits and liquors. For those who like to keep it authentic they sell the renowned Indian beer - Cobra.
A curry on average ranges from £5-£8, and around half this for starter dishes. Naans are very reasonable at 70p and vegetarian dishes do not exceed £5! For the quality of food and level of service you receive this is truly spectacular. Whether it's a family meal out, first date or general chow down food session you're after, Omi's will not disappoint!
