    Best curry in the world

    Rather than take the 'what's the UK got that Oz hasn't' thread off topic............. I wonder if you took a native Bangladeshi who's never left the country paid him to do a round the world trip to determine who does the best curries which country would he choose??

    The Glasgow Curry House

    Just opened. Best Indian in WA
  8. Hi! We have been in Perth for 9 months now (already??!!) and are yet to find a really good curry house. The hubby is particularly gagging for a 'decent' Indian curry..... We've tried Chutney Mary's and Maya's, both of which have a great reputation, and both of which I thought were pretty good. Yet hubby is still bombarding me with 'not a patch on a curry in London....'. I've researched online and have the names of a few, but as fellow expats, I expect you're comparing the same quality as we would be. Any suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated :biggrin: Cheers Tina

    Curry vs Fish and Chips

    I don't mind a curry but can't really see how it achieved preferred takeaway meal status in the UK. I like the Malay type biryanis, so many varieties to choose from I suppose. But fish and chips is something else. I've had a few feeds in the UK, certainly the best I've tried. In Australia it's mainly cooked by Greeks, some of whom don't do a bad job. In my opinion it's the best take out meal.

    THE 19,000km CURRY EXPRESS

    THE 19,000km CURRY EXPRESS If Bromley Bland, the 50-year-old piano dealer, had kept his mouth shut between mouthfuls of delicious curry, there would never have been any trouble..... What he said, quite loudly, in the Taj Mahal restaurant, you find down a Truro, Cornwall, back alley, was that he enjoyed the Bangladeshi family cooking so much he was going to have their curry dishes flown out to Australia in batches of 10. At $873 a time for the 19,308km journey by Jumbo. And he meant it. But restaurant walls have ears; and the cheery Mr. Bland’s vow reached the newsroom of the local newspaper, the story quickly being flashed around the world in advance of his Sydney arrival. ‘I’ll tell you what happened then,’ said the indignant businessman who imports Chinese pianos into England, exports Steinways to Japan, and sells Japanese Yamahas world-wide -- never with any trouble. ‘We were a party of four; my wife, Margaret and I; and an English lord and his wife who were travelling with us. ‘We arrived at the Sydney Airport Customs Hall about 6 AM and headed for the Green Exit because we had nothing to declare. All of a sudden we were pulled to one side and asked to sit down. A team of Customs and Quarantine officers then came over and asked us who had packed our bags? They said they were going to search every one and asked us again did we have anything to declare? We said we did not. ‘They then searched every bit of clothing, the linings of the suitcases, the linings of handbags and even little credit-card wallets. They x-rayed all the pipings of bags and cases. Then, when they started asking us very personal questions, and I hadn’t even been given a glass of water which I’d asked for, I told them to stuff off. This had gone on for about two hours and I thought they must have been looking for drugs. When they tried to split us up I warned the others not to leave. I was worried something might be planted. ‘When it was eventually over, the Quarantine guy in charge came across and said: "I would like to tell you why we have searched so thoroughly. We thought you might be illegally bringing curries into Australia.."’ Said Mr. Bland: ‘We didn’t of course, have any curries with us. We know that is illegal and you need an import licence. A company is arranging for me to have my meals vacuum-packed from the Taj Mahal and flown into Sydney so all I need to do is pop them into a pan with a bit of oil.’ At such a huge expense? ‘Well, I can afford it and I enjoy the freshness of their cooking. I select the spices for them in London for quality and take them down to Cornwall. So I know what I’m eating.’ Mr. Bland first got the taste for blazing hot curries in Birmingham more than 30 years ago. He has never been to the source of it all, India. But in Wolverhampton, where he grew up, he got to know Bangladeshi families who emigrated in the 60s, and patronised the restaurants they opened. ‘I got this fantastic liking for their food and I can’t be without it.’ When he’s back in Truro, Mr. Bland settles at his special table in the 70-seat Taj, on the Truro River, on average five times a week. It is a personal table - at which nobody else can sit. The Daily Mail and another newspaper are there, folded, to await him. He does not have to order. The chef ("a fifth generation expert who started at three years old in the kitchen") sends out a Madras or a Vindaloo. There is a jug of water by his elbow, because he doesn’t drink alcohol, and coffee to follow. ‘I have eaten Australian curries over the years,’ says Mr. Bland who has a house in Sydney’s Bondi Beach, ‘and they are nothing like the Taj. I am not knocking anybody, but I went to a restaurant near the hotel I stayed at on the New South Wales coast and had one the other night and it was uneatable. I have even tried to persuade the Taj Mahal chef to fly out and cook for me while I am here, because I can afford it. But he won’t leave his family behind. So I’ve arranged that his meals be packed and perfectly sealed in vacuum containers so they’ll keep for months.’ At $90 a dish, landed in Sydney, he believes he will be eating the world’s best curries "quite reasonably". ‘All I have to do is heat them up and then’ (by now he is in another world), ‘just enjoy them. The dishes I don’t eat immediately, will keep for months in the freezer.’ There may of course be some fine curry restaurants in Australia, and Bromley means to try them all. But he already misses the Taj...

    Good curry in Perth??

    Hi all, we moved to Perth 3 months ago from Birmingham and now the nights are closing in and things are getting a bit cooler we are need of a good cockle warming curry. We know there are plenty of Indian places around but we also know that the Indian food over here is a little more authentic than the British curry we get at home. We are very adventurous when it comes to food but when it comes to curry I don't want a fine dining experience, I want a taste of home. I want a balti!!! Can anyone recommend a good British style balti house? Crazy really, I used to moan about there being about a million of them on our road alone in the UK, now, what I wouldn’t give for just one of them!! And before I’m accused of being a typical brit abroad, I drink Aussie beer, have a tub of vegemite in the fridge (just in case immigration come knocking) and have eaten kangaroo. Therefore I’ve done my bit for bi-lateral relations, I deserve a British curry don’t I??? Thanks.
  19. Hi all Was wondering what the Aussie equivalent of our electrical shop Curry's is called.
  20. Hi The great search for the best curry in sydney is on. has anyone found one yet? We've tried many places but can't find the same sort of standard we're use to back home. Any suggestions? Or does anyone know a place that uses chicken breast instead of thigh meat?

    Good curry hpuses in Sydney

    Any suggestions guys? The Blu Ginger in McMahons Point is awesome, but I live in Eastern suburbs so can be a treck.
  23. Very strange request this but, here goes... have been in Oz for a few weeks now and am missing my Friday night Indian curry. Can't believe that there are no Indian restaurants around! We have just moved in to Sanctuary Lakes (Point Cook) so does anyone know of any good take aways? I don't want pizza/fish and chips/chinese... there are plenty of those around. Failing that, what about a good Thai take away? We have 2 small children so a take away on a Friday is our treat as getting out to eat is limited to places that have play areas (and I refuse to go to McDonalds or the Red Rooster AGAIN!) Hoping to get a reply before Friday..... Drea and the Miles boys
  24. I have figured out why Australia does not do curry….think about it…Australians do not travel that much as a rule and only really sample their own rather bland food that they have been brought up on …fast food takeaways are big business in Oz……..now us Brits have travelled all over Europe and Asia and have sampled the delight of foreign food be it Indian Chinese or Turkish….we appreciate the taste of spicy food much more than Australians that have been brought up on rather bland foods on barbies…..Indian restaurants cater for the taste-buds of Australians…that is why curries are not that spicy and rather sweet and rather bland….sorted.:rolleyes:

    Melbourne curry

    Hi All Have been in Melbourne for one year now, and apart from missing the obvious(family and friends), I have been absolutely dying for a good curry. I have spent the last year asking around and trying different curry places, but found nothing to match the quality of our curry houses in London's east end, or wembley areas. STOP PRESS!!!!! I stumbled across (from a recommendation) a curry house on my doorstep which is mind blowingly good. I cannot believe how good this place is if you want spicy indian food with fresh ingredients......I have been in shock at this find. In fact I went there for the 2nd time in 7days today, and was not disappointed. The owner, Suresh, is so passionate about his job and the quality pf the food, I believe, will not be rivalled in OZ....and is tough to beat in the UK. So, where is this place??????? It is- Madras Banyan Tree. 942 Nepean Highway. Hampton East. Viv 3188. Tel. 9555 7170. Tell Suresh, that I have recommended you, and he will happily look after you with a treat. Enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!
