Arrse Indian Restaurant guide

Rather surprisingly, I couldn’t find a “best Indian Restaurant thread”, so I thought, seeing as how I have been accused of being half-man, half curry, I would start one. Nothing too heavy, just a thread for people to tell the forum which Indian Restaurants are worth a visit and which are best avoided. If nothing else, it will give me some pointers as I roam the country with work.

The Spice Pavilion, Dundas Street, Edinburgh. Licenced, Cobra on draught and the Chicken Kolhapuri was outstanding, spicy without being a killer burn.

Akbar Tandoori, Richmond Road, Kingston upon Thames. Licenced, Kingfisher on draught, Lamb Pathia was very good. Cheap as chips as well, probably as there are half a dozen Indians on that road.

Any more? Anyone recommend a good one in Aberdeen, Carlise & Hull? (no prizes for guessing where I'm heading next...)

Hong Kong Restaurant in Ndola, Zambia was pretty good.


Yeah, I know....

Found a nice one on Saturday after the game. The Bangalore just round the corner from UJC. What little I had of my meal before my drink addled stomach told me that eating wasn't a good plan tasted very good, and reasonably priced for London.


Best place we've ever been to though was called the Ganges in Exeter on Fore Street
Ganges Restaurant
Bloody marvellous meal.

Another good one was the Calcutta Brasserie in Stony Stratford, went there at Christmas with a group of friends and had a Christmas themed banquet.
Welcome to Calcutta Brasserie

Stick to one of each with scraps and maybe that chip oil curry sauce if you're feeling flush.Enjoy Aberdeen before you get to Hull.

Jewel Balti in Monmouth is rather good and not overpriced too. Usual beers, plus usual curries but these seem alive where others just seem okay. They have plenty of unusual dishes too which are just mouth watering. God, I need a curry!
Staff are friendly and a good bunch.

The Maldives at Larkhill is spot on, Very nice food and they'll happily add stuff to your taste or even make something from scratch if they don't have what you're after on the menu.

Bloody good drinks menu too.

My suggestions:

Rasa (S Indian veggy, Stokey Church St and Charlotte St), Lahore (Pakistani grill, Whitechapel).

I've got their takeaway menu here at home, might have to give it a try, thanks.

The Goa Balti near Upavon on the Devizes Road is pretty special. It looks like a converted garage from the outside - which is exactly what it is.

Are you on a tour of shit places to visit? You just need to add Mansfield and Yorkshire in general to the list.

Bizarre and unexpected, but Oslo has one of the best curry houses anywhere. Norway is not known for any easily digestible cuisine other than gravadlax, so they are spoilt with this place:

Indian House - restaurant in the heart of Oslo - www.indianhouse.no

Even more unusual is that if the staff are complemented on the excellent grub and service they are Nordic enough to be surprised that it is cause for comment. The only downside is that it is opposite the stock exchange, where druggies use the classical portico as a place to jack up.
