Upon entering this small, buzzing restaurant on the liveliest strip of Glasgow’s West End, visitors are engulfed by a jovial atmosphere. Little Curry House is a vibrant Indian takeaway and sit-in with dining areas on the ground-floor and the mezzanine directly above. A flurry of motion coming from the open kitchen and the bustle of Byres Road bring plenty of life into this minute curry shop. Its menu is concise and clear offering a strong set of good old British curry house classics, and, for the more adventurous palate, four to five original specialties updated biweekly. The satisfying crackle of the potato and paneer pakoras and the soul-soothing chicken korma served in traditional Indian tableware prompt a gleeful sigh of admiration. And with the ever-changing list of specialities, one may stumble upon a new favourite, such as the pungent methi keema mutter – a dry minced lamb curry with green peas and a robust, earthy cumin base.
