The road signs (on the North side) opposite the Indian restaurant on Marathonas Avenue
(About 3 Km from Marathon village - in case you are trying to find the place in the future)


Doggie Style outside the Taj Mahal Indian Restaurant


Yordanka demonstrates a gymnastics position on the restaurant stage.


First came the Papadums.

(The papadum recipe varies from region to region in South Asia
but typically it is made from lentil, chickpea, black gram or rice flour)


Chicken Tikka Masala (above)

(Chicken tikka masala is chicken tikka, chunks of chicken marinated in spices and yoghurt
then baked in a tandoor oven, in a masala "mixture of spices" sauce)


Tucking in to the main course - after very filling starters.


Then more rice (and wine) arrives. Luckily they had some take-away boxes available.

All this for Euro 15 per head! That's value in 2008!
