Every Indian from India I have met found this gem and said no other Indian restaurant in Perth compares to Anghiti. Possibly the best place for Indian food in Perth? I visit their claims.
As you can see, its not really classy or anything – which is exactly what we were after. Especially after a good gym session – when you really want a meal that would erase your efforts.
Here is how to order at an Indian restaurant – count the total number of adults minus one. That is the number of dishes you should be ordering. It is a little difficult when you have only two people at dinner – like us tonight. So you will be forgiven for being greedy in such cases. (like us)
After we placed our order, we set the timer on to see how prompt the service was. So far, the waiters have been extremely responsive to us – coming over quickly to see if we needed to place any orders.
While waiting, this happened:
I can tell that the crowd here is very mature. I was the only one who went OHHH! haha.
It was still dark when the food was being transported over to us.. but the moment the dishes touched our table, the lights flickered on. How lucky!
Here is what we ordered.
1. Chicken Tikka Masala
Old is gold. This dish is a classic and Anghiti made it even better. The chicken was so tender, the flavours were richly spicy without being overpowering. A good dish to eat with 2. basmati rice. (below) One serving of this is enough for two people or three if you are also having naan.
Craving for all that is difficult to make at home, we had to order the 3. garlic naan. Just imaging the naan being stuck onto the wall of the tandoor(oven) makes me salivate. We could smell the aroma of the garlic naan a mile away. Although it was glistening with some butter, it was too good to resist. It was amazing.
The final dish was 4. Keshmiri Paneer. Paneer is a cheese that is usually home made by the Indians. It has the consistency of ricotta and is just as light. It is probably considered very healthy too. Not wanting to go with the usual Palak (spinach) style, I went for the Keshmiri which has an onion and tomato base.
It was amazing with the naan. It was firm and its tomato flavours were bursting out with every bite of the paneer blending the flavours perfectly. I would probably order this again.
As for the time it took for our food to be served?
Not bad…Not bad at all…
What made it even better was the 10% discount given. Why? Because Anghiti recognised me as a great food blogger and wanted me to enjoy the time I had there.
No LAH. The real reason is the blackout! I’m only a low #59 on urbanspoon’s leaderboard. Gotta work harder!
Anghiti really knows how to retain their customers even in Perth where it is so well known to have really poor service. Well done.
I give Anghiti 9.5/10.
