Begin with rajmah ki tikki (beautiful red kidney bean patties served with a lively, green herb chutney) or the melt-in-the-mouth shami kebabs (lamb cakes cooked with lentils).
Mains are equally well executed with a run-of-the-mill sounding saag murg offering unusually creamy & flavoursome spinach with a hint of subtle spicing, & the korma gosht wonderfully scented with cardamom.
The larger of the two accommodates up to 20 delegates; perfect for seminars, board meetings, training courses and much more. The restaurant is often used for private lunched or dinners.
A seafront hotel is, perhaps, not the most likely location for a top-notch, modern Indian restaurant.
It's the ideal venue for a truly memorable occasion.
The Chatsworth offers excellent facilities with a choice of two conference rooms.
The tasteful decoration and furnishing create a home-from-home feeling with traditional comforts you would expect.
There is a passenger lift to each floor whilst every bedroom features en-suite facilities, tea and coffee making facilities, colour television and radio, direct dial telephone with modem point and hairdryer. One of the most unique features of the Chatsworth is its excellent restaurant with panoramic views over the English Channel.
All of the Chatsworth's 52 bedrooms are tastefully decorated and provide every amenity, with many enjoying unrivalled views of the seafront and pier.
Do not be put off by the location and go to Jali for the food.
My dining comrade and I were impressed both by the quality and the value for money, it was a pity about the setting.
The flavours were light and refreshing, a contrast to many Indian restaurants that seem almost to drown their dishes in ghee and often over-cook the food.
We were similarly impressed with mains of paneer (cheese) and chicken (a house speciality of Kadia murgh).
