The Riz (Margate, Kent)

The Riz, Margate If you love a good old British-style seaside resort and you love a good curry may I direct you to the Riz in Margate? The smartly dressed owner directed proceedings and gave us all the information we were after when it came to what was and...

Lightly spiced

Lee Raj, Blackpool There are so many food options in Blackpool town centre and along the Golden Mile that when a local recommends somewhere beyond the lights it’s worth taking note. Lee Raj is only just beyond the lights in fact, only a short walk from Starrs Gate, the...

It takes all sauce

Ribble Tandoori, Clitheroe, Lancashire (Takeaway) As one of only a handful of curry houses serving the market town of Clitheroe, as well as the large surrounding area of villages and farms, the Ribble Tandoori needs to be good. And as it is the nearest Indian to my friend’s cottage,...

Spice panorama

 The Vista, Nairobi, Kenya There are great views of the Kenyan capital from this seventh floor restaurant in the vibey area of Westlands. Large glass panels offer diners about 180 degree span of the city as they enjoy their curry. As the Vista serves as the Hotel Emerald’s restaurant...

Rub a zub zub

Zub Express, Flic en Flac, Mauritus (Takeaway) Granted, poor old Zub Express had a tough ask when I ordered the Chicken Kolapuri (Rps190) because the best curry I have ever had was when I ordered the same dish in India. But while this kolapuri wasn’t quite up to those...

Would you Adam and Eve it

Adam’s Curries, Baku, Azerbaijan (Review by Neil Beard, Greenwich resident and International Curry Correspondent). After spending two long, hot and busy months in Azerbaijan and at the request of Curry Bard Dan, I finally managed to get around to visiting Adam’s Curries in Baku for the first time, just...

Starters orders

Bhaji, London E14 (Takeaway) Established in 1997, this friendly Isle of Dogs takeaway serves up decent takeaway food from a great menu. Bhaji‘s Chicken Benjal (£4.95) caught my eye straight away. Jalfrezi lovers would enjoy this dish of tomatoes, green peppers, onions and chillies, although a bit more oomph...

Menu expressions

Manjal, London E14 This classy Isle of Dogs gem has always impressed me with its freshness (see Fast but certainly fresh) – now it boasts a fresh menu as well as fresh food. And what a menu it is. Dishes are split into sections on the new line-up: as...

Fresh versus tinned

Spicy Village, Torreblanca, Spain Ganga, Torreblanca, Spain Just when I was about to decry that all Indian restaurants in Spain seem to churn out pretty poor, generic curries after eating at Spicy Village, along comes a saviour in the form of Ganga. The two curry houses are both relatively...

Curry base-ics

The Greenwich Curry Club always like to check out new curry venues so we were delighted to be the very first customer at Balti Base, the name chosen by the new owners of the takeaway at 106 Blackheath Road. Previously Curry to Go, and before that Medina, they have...

Going south

Kerala Village, another new Greenwich curry venture can be found at 119 Trafalgar Road. Offering South Indian, Sri Lankan and North Indian dishes, all the usual dishes are there if you want them. But there are many unusual dishes, including four egg curries and an extensive range of seafood...

Not so real

Real Taste, the chicken, chips and kebab place next to the Co-op in Greenwich town centre has cut its offerings of curry. The venue used to offer a full range of spicy food including all the old-school favourites at decent prices under the banner of Real Spice. However, this...

Loving the view

Mountain View, Greenwich, London Fifteen of the Greenwich Curry Club descended on the newish Mountain View restaurant with recommendations from numerous people still ringing in our ears. The Nepalese recently replaced the Mehak along Trafalgar Road and although its predecessor was pretty decent the Mountain View has raised the...
