The much loved Khushi’s on Victoria Street suffered a devastating fire last December and, at the time of writing, shows little sign of a quick re-opening. However, Khushi’s Diner, opened by a member of the same family, is in the same spirit. Specialities of the house include a starter of king prawns marinated with sesame seeds, cashew nuts, spices and yoghurt before being cooked in the tandoor. Biryanis are also a big feature on the menu alongside the kormas and jalfrezis you might expect.
