Little Curry House
Small but vibrant restaurant, strong on Indian classics with an ever-changing list of original specialties.
There are immediate similarities to Mother India and the Wee Curry Shop – once upon a time all were part of one extended family. The former group ethos prevails with good freshly made food, and there are some common recipes such as the healthy-tasting spiced haddock with tomatoes. An open kitchen design means you can watch every naan bread on its journey from dough ball to plate, which all adds to the entertainment. Through the week, a mix and match tapas menu allows diners to try a variety of smaller plates (why on Earth isn’t everyone doing this yet?). There are some standout features of the cooking – tender breast fillets in a traditional chicken curry succumb to the fork easily, delightfully mild and squeaky paneer is made in house, and the chana daal is a strong contender for best in town. It’s all served up in a convivial environment and at weekends there is a particular buzz. And the light, no-ghee cooking style means you can party afterwards – rather than head straight home to jammies and TV.
