No previews were available of the final part of this fly-on-the-wall series. Which is a shame because, although the idea is well-worn, the participants in this series have offered considerable charm and insight. Ultimately, these families have affirmed values that most of us share and, even if that’s arguably slightly lazy as a TV concept, it’s hard not to be cheered by their stoic functionality.
Tonight, the Tahirs encounter that most universal of relationship issue – the troublesome in-law. But we’d expect the episode to centre around Mel and Kris as their renewal of vows looms. Their relationship has often seemed stormy: challenged by financial issues and, at times, hanging by a thread. But we’d be surprised if this finale (and, given how likeable they seem, dismayed) didn’t manage something uplifting.
This Brick Lane curry house is one of the oldest going around these parts, having originally set up shop here back in 1963. It's a big spot, too, capable of catering to 200 hungry mouths. The menu is peppered with curry house crowd-pleasers – think butter chicken, lamb korma, masala dosa, vegetable dansak and prawn jalfrezi. Keep an eye out, though, for less well-known dishes such as lemon chana lamb or chicken khaiber - a dish of half a spring chicken cooked in the tandoor then served in a tomato and fresh garlic sauce. And if you want to know how they cook them? Sign yourself up for one of their weekly cookery classes.
