If the hardest decision you have to make on a Friday night is whether to have a Chinese or Indian meal – a brand new restaurant, opened in Woodbridge last week, could be about to make your life a whole lot easier.

Restaurateur Anupam Seth has just launched Indo-Chinese eatery Temptationz on Warwick Avenue in the town, in the premises of a former takeaway.

Already he says customers are loving the food - a small, but tantalising menu of authentic Indian dishes, complemented by a few Chinese favourites (with an Indian twist).

“There’s big potential here. People here love Indian food,” Anupam says of his decision to put down business roots in the town. “I think our chefs are amazing, and people are loving it. It’s Indo-Chinese fusion and is a very interesting combination. Very different. “

Everything at Temptationz is cooked to order, with customers able to see straight through into the kitchen as their dinner takes shape.

According to Anupam the one dish that’s not to be missed is the butter chicken, as the chef in charge of cooking it once worked alongside its creators at the Moti Mahal Delux restaurant in Delhi. Slow cooked in garlic, tomatoes and fenugreek, it’s become a modern Indian classic.

“It’s out-of-this-world amazing,” Anupam claims. “And so is the Goan fish curry. That’s so creamy. Another very popular dish is the lamb shank. It’s a huge piece of lamb, marinated overnight and braised slowly. It’s so tender it just slips down the throat.”

A Chinese twist comes in the form of chilli paneer – cooked with spices and soy sauce. Or as chow mein, which combines Chinese seasoning with Indian vegetables and tandoori chicken.

Also on the concise menu are nibbles of mixed bhajis and masala peanuts, crispy tiger prawns coated in chickpea flour, paneer marinated in Indian pickle, home-style chicken curry, and a special vegetarian curry melding koftas of Indian cheese and vegetables into a creamy sauce.
