It's not going to set the world alight but in the grand scheme of things the food at Suruchi is not too bad. I have a bit of an issue with their lamb dishes all basically having the same sauce, a kind of tomatoey thick thing. Consequently the Xacuti tastes like the Vindaloo which in turn tastes like the Jalfreizi, at least the Jalfreizi is hot enough to give it a little kick, more than the other dishes do. Authenticity is not on the list of words I would use is conjunction with Suruchi, but of the crop of fairly dismal Indian restaurants around Barnet church it is the best, not a glowing accolade I know but the best I can muster. Their Tandoori chicken is very nice however and the prices are very very reasonable and seem to be stuck at a level from about 5 years ago. The staff are also very friendly and have seemingly endless patience with some of the ludicrous things that were said to them in just the hour or so we were there. I quote, I'm having chicken tikka because the english invented it. Verdict, you are a dick. Asking is it spicy, I dont want anything spicy about EVERY item on the menu, for gods sake get fish and chips then. People were also Googling that exotic word Channa, and talking loudly about its possible meaning,seriously? Have you never had a curry before. At this point if I was the waiter I would've just walked out but he was all smiles all the way, he must have the patience of a saint.
