Some may judge, but recently I accidentally happened to try three different curry houses on Brick Lane in the space of three weeks. Thanks to my fellow diners @perrieee @nicolabarrett86 and Papa De Viell.
Top tip number 1: Haggle, haggle, haggle. There’s really not much that separates each establishment, so you might as well score the best deal you possibly can right? From 25% off the total bill and a round of drinks on a Sunday, to 4 courses plus a bottle of wine for £17, I’d say my negotiation skills paid off. Don’t be shy, it’s all part of the fun!
Top tip number 2: I personally like somewhere with atmosphere, so don’t walk into one of the houses where it’s totally dead.
Top tip number 3: Don’t be overwhelmed by the endless menus, and try something new! I ventured away from my usual bhuna to a rezala (A Bangladeshi dish cooked in exotic sauce made from spices flavoured with yogurt and green chillies). The winner for me? On flavour I’ve got to say City Spice. The saag paneer was 👌🏻On the best deal? The Famous Curry Bazaar.
Go forth and enjoy!
P A V I L I O N 2 🇮🇳😜 Chicken Karahi is a staple whenever I go for a curry out and The Pavillion 2 in Rochdale does it well. The chicken is so tender and the sauce, spicy but not ‘blow your head off’ - I like to be able to taste what I am consuming thanks 🌶😂 The service here is always amazing. They really take their time to look after you from the minute you walk in to the minute you leave. The naan bread is really good too as is the rice. I love a decent curry and I do struggle to find one but this is up there with one of my favourite go to places 👍🏻 Ps - they are available on @tablenow which gets you 30% off your total bill so what are you waiting for? 👏🏻
