Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019/20 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

Very much in the if-it-ain’t-broke-don’t-fix-it category, the Wee Curry Shop has been serving top nosh since 1997. Don’t expect startling innovation, just straightforward curries, rotis and rice. Add a Kingfisher or a lassi if you are feeling flash. The price remains old-school, too, with a terrific value two-course lunch for £6.50. There is a smallish menu but the daily specials board is the main focus – expect to see an occasional fish curry, or the Scot-Asian fave of haggis pakora. Descriptions on the menu are designed not to confuse, ginger chicken and spinach leaf is exactly as advertised with chunky slices of home-pickled ginger – a good sign that food is prepped over several stages, while a saag paneer broccoli is simple and delightful. There are the odd quibbles – a daal shows little signs of the promised carmalised onion and Indian veg, for instance, and the chunky china serving bowls cool the curries a little too quickly at the table – but with such comforting, home-style cooking, and cracking prices, it’s not worth worrying about.
