Introduction

Hi Outthere (or perhaps, Inthere), just a quick introduction. I was looking at reviews of the Kindle 3G and up came this forum. It looks very interesting so I have registered. I live in Bassersdorf, Kt. Zürich since 2002. I am a Chelsea fan since 1955 and I and my wife go to England about 6 times a year and go to Stamford Bridge 4/5 times during the season. My favourite eating our experience is Indian which I have been cooking for over 40 years. Our "local" Indian restaurant is the Mantra, Bath Road, Hounslow, which we always eat in whenever we are in England. I think that is enough of an introduction. Hope you Outthere / Inthere have found this thread interesting. Colin

Re: Introduction

Since seeing Chelsea beat West Ham on Easter Saturday I am convinced that the luck is in Chelsea´s half. The goals against Spurs has convinced me even more. So this coming Sunday is a foregone conclusion. I now think Chelsea will win the league. Thanks for the replies to my introduction, Guys.

Re: Introduction

Didn't get to the Mantra on Thursday night. Mission Control decided on Chinese. We did however, go on Friday night. In the main, excellent. The Gobi chilli fry was superb. Never had a venison curry before so that was a new experience. The chilli cheese nan was perhaps a little dissapointing. He remembered his Swiss customer when I mentioned how we heard of the place, so ask for a discount next time!

I have to say the blond waitresses in short black skirts was an interesting interpretation of "authentic Indian".

253 Bath Road, between Hounslow Central and Hounslow West if anyone has time to kill on the way from Heathrow into Cetral London.

Unlucky Colin, looks like a new Manager is on order.
