Eating curry is like a way of life for the British. No weekend would be complete without a takeaway from our favorite Indian. But some cities have gained a reputation for themselves for being better than most when it comes to curry, but where can Indian-lovers go to get their ultimate fix of one of the most beloved cuisines in the world?
The second city is well-known for producing some of the very best curries in the world. There are a host of hot-spots for visitors to visit in order to get their fix of curry, with some of the very best found on this countdown produced by WeLoveBrum. There is something for everyone in the second city no matter of your dietary requirements. The city covers every base imaginable, which also includes curry houses that are dedicated to ensuring the best possible meal for vegetarians. The very best hot-spot in the city, however, is Lasan. The restaurant was called the ‘best restaurant’ in the city by Gordon Ramsey, which means it’s a must for every visitor.
Of course, the capital itself has a variety of curry options for visitors. However, finding the very best that London has to offer could be harder than it is in most cities. There is an extensive number of Indian restaurants in the city, but our personal favorite would be the Bombay Brasserie. Visitors who come to this establishment must understand that it is a little more on the expensive side, but what you get for your money is second to none. It is around £40 per head in the restaurant, but the Paperwali Machchi will ensure that you aren’t left thinking about the price that you’re paying. If you are looking to pay less, then the Kricket Soho should be your destination.
