    Try some more exotic dishes in the international restaurants of Axminster

    There's no doubt about it: you can enjoy some superb regional British cooking in a number of fine restaurants around Axminster. If you fancy something a little more exotic, however, you're also well-catered for. At Cinnamons, for example, the Indian and Bangladeshi specialities are simply outstanding. The sikandar badi lamb main is a prime example. This complex Indian dish is made with lamb that is marinated for 48 hours in carefully chosen spices before being roasted in the oven until mouth-wateringly tender.
