Resham was an Indian restaurant in Norbury, specialising in Indian-style Chinese food. According to its website it closed in May 2019 due to retirement.

The information below is retained for historical purposes.

It's quite large, spread across two shopfronts and seating around a hundred people in total. The interior is quite plain, with little in the way of decoration photo.

bob visited on a Wednesday evening in February 2017. There were three sets of diners in already when I arrived around 7:30pm, two of them in quite large groups, and two more parties arrived while I was there. TVs were showing football with the sound on relatively quietly.

I ordered chicken 65, lamb bhuna, hakka noodles, and keema naan, and was asked if I wanted everything together or my chicken 65 as a starter. I also had a bottle of still water, which came with a glass containing a very tired lemon slice photo. They brought condiments photo without me having to ask, including a green chilli chutney that had quite a kick.

Chicken 65 (£6.25) photo was quite different from the usual chicken 65, being a Chinesified version consisting of strips of chicken in a gloopy orange sauce. It did taste of garlic though. Lamb bhuna (£8) photo had tender lamb, and the sauce was fine.

Hakka noodles (£6) photo were competently cooked, with quite a bit of garlic, though possibly a touch too greasy. Keema naan (£3.45) photo was stuffed with tasty spicy meat, with no red dye in evidence.

No service charge was added to the bill photo.

Child-friendliness: They have at least two highchairs.

Accessibility: No step to get in, and it's level to the toilets once you're in.
