A Special Thali at The Curry Room
The regal Curry Room at the Rubens at the Palace Hotel serves a selection of Indian curries from Chef Arun Kumar. In celebration of National Curry Week, guests can choose to indulge in Chef Kumar’s Thali, which offers a selection of 3 curries from the main menu for just an extra £10 on top of the £35 3 course menu. Delicious options include Bengal Fish Curry cooked with aubergine and the favourite North Indian style Butter Chicken simmered in butter, chilli and coriander cream. Sitting a stone’s throw from Buckingham Palace, this is the most celebratory location to make the most of National Curry Week.
Calcuttan cuisine at Little Kolkata
Serving authentic Calcuttan cuisine that co-founders Prabir and Biswajit found was lacking in London, Little Kolkata provides a homely and comforting experience for celebrating National Curry Week. Signature curries on the menu include Calcuttan delicacies, such as Golda Chingri Malai Curry, a jumbo prawn cooked in coconut cream (£13.50) and Murshidabadi Chicken Moghlai, whole baby chicken cooked with cashew nut, saffron and rose water (£11.00). For those wanting to celebrate National Curry Week with absolutely authenticity, Little Kolkata is the ideal choice.
