Katie: I have had lamb less than a handful of times so not a ton of experiences to relate this to, but this dish was great. There was a kick and after multiple bites in a row it was getting a bit hot, but overall this dish had such good flavor and the lamb was cooked well.

Potter: I don't know that I've ever had lamb before going into this dish so I was excited to try it, on top of that I've never made curry before so this dish was just a lot of new experiences. And they did not disappoint. This turned out awesome, very tender and flavorful. There was none of the spice heat you would expect with a curry, just a good even flavor. If you're looking to introduce someone or yourself to curry this is a great dish to start with.
