On a overcast cool night during the December holidays, we returned to Raasoie to enjoy some lovely Indian food.

Having not tried lassi before, I ordered one, choosing the sweet over the salted option. It is a very pleasant drink, similar to drinking yoghurt and most enjoyable.

Our mains consisted of lamb vindaloo, prawn curry, garlic naan bread and jeera rice. The prawns had a slight after taste of the frozen variety, but the rest of the meal was delicious. The cumin rice, spicy lamb and garlic bread all complimented each other perfectly.

Bold flavours, value for money and definitely one of PE’s favourite authentic Indian restaurants, sums up Raasoie.

If you really enjoy Chinese food, be sure to pay Esian in Westering a visit. The menu is mostly authentic Chinese, including plenty of vegetarian options that will suit any palate.

We ordered the sweet and sour soup as a starter – tofu strips, dried mushroom, spring onion, bamboo strips, dried chillies and egg. It was a huge portion that could easily feed 4 and was quite spicy and very tasty.

Mains consisted of three dishes, stir fried pork, stir fried calamari and a cold dish of potato, carrot and pepper strips with finely chopped garlic. Every dish was very good and the flavours of sesame oil, soy and oyster sauce complimented each ingredient perfectly.

The food did take some time to arrive, but it is evident that everything is freshly prepared as this is the style of Chinese cooking. Esian reminded me of our visit to China in December 2013 and around the PE area, it is as close as you will get to the real deal.

If you are quite brave, order some Chinese rice wine to accompany your meal, but beware, it is as potent as Bruce Lee’s fist!
