The Nottingham branch of the Georgetown chain is regally situated in the exquisite front dining room of the Colwick Hall Hotel, with its stunning ceiling depicting Venus and the cherubs. Like its siblings, the restaurant is decked out in the style of a grand colonial ballroom with wicker chairs, plants and sepia prints; the long bar serves as a Singapore Sling station, with Chopin and Mozart playing in the background.
Named after the East India Company's trading port in Malaysia, the menu is a hotch-potch of indigenous Malaysian specialities, fleshed out with a few Mandarin Chinese and Tamil Indian ideas for good measure. Ikan goreng (fried fish with aromatic herb salad and sweet chilli pickle), griddled murtabak bread, Penang lobster with sambal sauce, and hokkien kway teow (stir-fried noodles) and other dishes form the backbone of the repertoire.
Elsewhere, look for Mandarin steamed dumplings and claypots packed with chicken and Chinese greens, plus Indian classics in the shape of lamb biryani and Chettinad chicken koli with sautéed aubergines and okra. Desserts are equally broad-minded, from tropical fruit salad spiked with Amaretto to ais kacang (a mound of shaved ice piled onto an extravagant mixture of red beans, crushed nuts, agar jellies, sweetcorn, black jelly and vanilla ice cream).
