When staff greet guests from the first-floor entrance, it looks like you’re just a flight of stairs away from a warm welcome home – and that’s what a visit to the Wee Curry Shop is like. Walls densely covered by photos and memorabilia invite us to take a trip down memory lane from the security of a small eatery. The staff tend to the guests’ every need with keen attentiveness, and readily offer suggestions. The menu is not too lengthy, but boasts a prime selection of Indian dishes, with two creamy curries – the butter chicken and lamb malaidaar – rightfully topping the favourites list. From the starters, buried among the more common pakoras and pooris, the masala dosa could easily slip under the radar – but don’t let it. With the well-executed rice pancake, this curry house can easily measure up against any South Indian competition. Fantastic location, welcoming atmosphere and skilful cooking to boot make a visit to this compact curry house a well-rounded dining experience.
