  1. What made you laugh today?

    Today's topical meme     
  2. 3G in Restaurants?

    Don't feed the clown!         
  3. "Really good" Indian restaurants in Berlin

    I'll really have to beg to differ on Amrit - as a previous poster put it, "a low rent cocktail bar masquerading as an Indian restaurant"
  4. 3G in Restaurants?

    Why waste your time "debating" with a clown? You're never going to get anything back but rants and conspiracies!
  5. BREXIT positives and negatives

    A must read - what the Tory leadership contest tells us about Brexit   https://chrisgreybrexitblog.blogspot.com/2022/08/what-leadership-contest-tells-us-about.html
  6. "Really good" Indian restaurants in Berlin

    In the same vein, more breathless hyperbole from ExBerliner's food critic "Jane Silver"   https://www.exberliner.com/food/from-agni-to-zora-indian-restaurants-berlin/   I have been underwhelmed by Bahadur, Agni, Chutnify; rather liked Swadesh; am a regular visitor at the Zora Supermarket; and have yet to visit India Club, The Indique, Saravanaa Bhavan, Singh, Tandoori Nächte...   This discussion is really going viral!

  10. "Really good" Indian restaurants in Berlin

    Here we go again - now ExBerliner is claiming an improvement in the quality of Indian restaurants in Berlin (Tandoori Nächte & The Indique).  I don't know either - any reports?   https://www.exberliner.com/food/tandoori-nachte-and-the-indique-a-tale-of-two-biryanis-indian-restaurants/   Tandoori Nächte, Bornimer Str. 4, Charlottenburg, Tue-Sun 11-23  The Indique, Ziegelstr. 29, Mitte, lunch Wed-Fri 12-15, dinner Wed-Sun 17-23
