Review: Qmin, Lichfield

I’m always a bit wary when I notice a restaurant uses a play on words for their name. So it’s taken a while to visit this Indian restaurant in Lichfield, named after the ever popular spice! Nevertheless, it came with a decent report from my parents, so it was about time to give it a go. It was pretty busy on the Friday evening we visited, service was ever so pleasant and professional, if a bit slow overall, especially when it came to paying the bill. We started (obviously) with some poppodoms and chutneys – decent and very edible, but I’ve had better versions.

Both our starters were pretty good –  a Salmon Tikka for Lee and a King Prawn Puri for me. I really liked the presentation of my dish, the prawns were well cooked and the sauce really flavoursome. Lee also enjoyed the flavours of his salmon, but found it a little overcooked.

For mains we both chose off the Chefs Speical section of the menu. We shared a Chana Palak with Tandoori Chicken, and a Murg Nowabi. The prize for dish of the night went to the Chana Palak – the depth of flavour in this was fantastic. I also really enjoyed the big hit of mint in the Murg Nowabi dish, it reminded me of a tikka masala but much lighter. It was nice, but not great, I wouldn’t order this one again. A garlic and coriander naan was very well cooked also.

We found Qmin good overall, with a few little negatives here and there, but nothing that would spoil a meal. Worth a look if you’re in the area.
