Spice up your life

This week is National Curry Week – a celebration of the British love affair with a cuisine that originated on the Indian subcontinent. To mark the occasion, we’ve compiled a list of our favourite curry houses to whet the appetite.

Lasan, Birmingham
If you’re looking to take your passion for curry to the next level, then Lasan in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter is the place to go. A winner of the ‘Best Local Restaurant’ award on Gordon Ramsay’s ‘F Word’ programme, this stylish restaurant is not your average curry house.

The Kashmir, Bradford
One of the oldest Indian restaurants in Bradford, The Kashmir may not win any awards for its décor but what it lacks in aesthetic quality it makes up for in flavour. Reasonably priced and conveniently located for the National Science and Media Museum, this is a must for die-hard curry fans.

Gymkhana, London
Gymkhana is a curry house with a difference. This sophisticated restaurant is influenced by the high society clubs of days gone by with wood-panelled interiors and period cricket photography adorning the walls. Feeling extravagant? Try the tasting menu for an extra special treat.

Mother India’s Café, Edinburgh
Take Indian food, combine it with the principles of small tapas-sized servings and you get this ingenious eatery in Edinburgh. Perfect for lunch, it’s a treat for anyone who wants a bit of variety in their life. Now, are you going to pass that saag paneer or not?

Nu Delhi, Belfast
What happens when you mix food, cocktails and music? You get Nu Delhi in Belfast – a restaurant that mixes great local produce with Indian spices to exquisite effect. Not to be missed if you’re in Northern Ireland.
