Great. We went for a curry at Al Bilal last week.. wish i'd known then what I know now. or maybe I don't. the food was staggeringly unimpressive, and the most memorable part of the evening was the framed sweatshirt on the wall that read "Al-Bilal gives you wind". We thought it might be a hilarious translation of something romantic like "The red schooner sails in the breeze", but we asked the waiter and he said, "No, Al-Bilal's just the name of the bloke who ran it." Never again...
