Our recommended restaurants for National Curry Week 2019

With National Curry Week kicking off today (7-14th October), we curry-crazed Brits, who devour millions each year, need little reason to celebrate our national dish.

While around 23 million people consumed curry in 2013, according to the National Curry Week website, the UK is spoiled for choice with over 9,000 Indian, Pakistani and Bangladeshi restaurants across the country.

And with so many of these being Halal and Halal-friendly, here’s five London curry houses to consider this week starting with the award-winning Indian restaurant Patri, which we recently rated an impressive 4.5/5 ROARS.

PATRI
HALAL STATUS Fully Halal food menu • Alcohol served

OFFER FREE MOCKTAIL with every meal – Quote ‘Feed the Lion’ to a member of staff (not in conjunction with any other offer)

If there’s one place you should visit this week, it has to be Patri, a brand that brings the authentic street food flavours of India to the streets of west London’s Hammersmith and Northfields.

Patri Hammersmith was shortlisted as a finalist for ‘Restaurant of the Year’ and Patri Northfields ‘New Restaurant of the Year’ at this year’s London Curry Awards, before Patri Hammersmith was crowned ‘Street Food Restaurant of the Year’, while owner and chef Puneet was voted ‘Curry Entrepreneur of the Year’.

The name Patri, which means ‘railway track’, essentially represents the theme that’s inspired the menu, which revolves around the following “2 train journeys of India”: New Delhi Station and Calcutta Junction – the latter being a new menu update and replacement to the previous Marwar Junction.

Patri could arguably be the best Indian restaurant in west London we’ve reviewed thus far. Some of the dishes we’d recommend are:

  • CALCUTTA JUNCTION Mangsher Jhol – Bengali kitchen classic preparation of mutton slow cooked over low flame in mustard oil and softened boiled potatoes.
  • CALCUTTA JUNCTION Nizami Safed Maas – gentle spices blended with almond and cashew nut paste and softened with cream and milk.
  • NEW DELHI STATION Pantry Chicken Curry – onions and tomatoes cooked fast- and furious-style, and inspired by the moving express trains before being simmered with yoghurt, masalas and coriander.
  • NEW DELHI STATION Murgh Makhani – Chef’s Signature Butter Chicken on the bone, marinated chicken is first part cooked in the tandoor, clay oven and then the slices are gently cooked in buttery tomato cashew nut gravy topped with fenugreek honey and coriander.
