A generally good and comfortable Indian restaurant, named after the Blue Indian peacock, the countries National bird.
As well as all the expected balti's, dhansak's and Anglo-Indian dishes - all of which are cooked to a high standard; you'll find dishes such as 'Crab Malaba' - white crabmeat, cooked with spices, white wine and mango, topped with cheese; 'Chingri Puri' - lightly-spiced shrimps tossed with shredded ginger, garlic and spring onions and puri bread; and 'Tangri Kebab' - hot and spicy chicken wings - among the starters.
Perhaps to be followed by 'Bollywood Shank' - lamb shank, in a rich tom and coriander sauce with spicy minced lamb; 'Duck Xacuti' - breast of barbury duck in a masala sauce with spices; and 'Chicken or Lamb Goan Curry'.
There are plenty of interesting vegetarian options, plus a good list of tempting sundries.
If anything, as in most Indian restaurants, the menu is worryingly long - meaning dishes are generally a variation on a theme of a few sauces.
Results are generally good none-the-less; but unadorned and unseasoned cooked spinach was a let-down at a summer 2012 inspection.
