Cheapskates Lunch - Pakistan Centre

Keep calm and curry on.

Since we enjoyed the canteen style food so much at the ICCA a few months back, let's try another place in a similar style. A tray comprising different compartments for daal, meat, rice, saag and chapatti. Two options veg or non-veg - you pays your money, you don't get much choice, but the food is wholesome, tasty and not too hot ! Three or four quid all in. So come along and try it - whether you're a regular or a first-time luncher, you'll be welcome ...

The Pakistan Centre is on Woodborough Road at the corner of Alfred Street North. You can't miss it as it's in an old church building* on the left as you head out of town. It's across the road from Asiana cash and carry so handy if you want to pick up some exotic comestibles (don't use their carpark if you're not shopping there though - they don't like it). And if none of that makes sense then this might help.

Note the timing for this lunch is a little earlier than normal as they close at around 1.15pm.

    Really tasty food for the price. I really like these Cheapskate lunches as there's often some random/unusual places.. Great chatting company as always.

    I've called the Centre and they can cope with 15-20 of us. The earlier we get there the better though so let's try and gather by 12.15ish (I'll be there at 12.00). Looking forward to it ...

    1:15 close? Maybe they just stop serving, or do they kick us out after 1.25 hours?
