Any invitation to taste the Himalaya is likely to be warmly welcomed by Coventry residents, and the same holds sway for those suburban dwellers around Tile Hill. Up along Banner Lane, until recently the site of the abandoned WWII engineering shadow factory, a new complex of shops and restaurants has sprung up. Set back off the main road, down Gramercy Park, sits Rupee Lounge, offering Indian and Nepalese dishes that are destined to add a dash of colour to the lives of locals. The spice of life is what this restaurant does best, whether you go for buckets of balti, classical Indian dishes or even an English scampi and chips. Practically the only Himalayan restaurant in the area, you should book if you want to taste the Himalaya.
Food sounds delicious?
Get a table before they're gone
I have been twice, both times received excellent service and good food. It came to ~£40 for a meal for two including drinks. Good curry portion sizes but I would recommend getting a naan and rice per person rather than sharing. I intend to visit again. Note: The correct postcode is CV4 9AE (Quandoo has the wrong one).
Excellent food, friendly staff who were not obtrusive, nice ambience, sensible prices. My first time at the Rupee Lounge...it won't be the last, for sure!
