We have had a great meal at an Indian restaurant in Polesworth on the Coventry canal. It is called the Indigo Lounge at Fosters Yard Hotel. Great food for a reasonable price. It is not often I can eat at a restaurant and not have anything to moan about. This was one of those times -no complaints.
So if you like a good curry and are passing on the Coventry give it a try.

There is also a great Indian restaurant in Atherstone - The Raj Mahal on Long Street. Also the one in Birmingham above the canal on Broad Street - it is called The Onion Barajee

If my opinion was correct, true and valid. We would all share the same opinion. Then it wouldn't be an opinion.

We had an exceptionally good curry at the Brinjol in Weedon last year.

(the lamb phal was a blast!) :blush:

I like collecting recipes

I now have a greater number of recipes than the likely number of days remaining to me!

 

 

Don't waste time thinking about what's wrong with yourself. Instead, focus on what's wrong with other people.

I know not of your preferred beer/drink with a curry . . . .

But should you embrace a Phal - - avoid any Guinness / strong stout / Barley wine . . . One needs retain some level of self-control at all times - - no matter how much concentration is required

For anyone in the area "Simply Indian" at Pollington do a great curry. It is only a short walk from the lock and well worth a visit. :cheers:

Not all of them. We had such a bad meal at the curry house in Wells next the Sea that we certainly will not be going back again. It was inedible :angry:

We found that the "Onion Barajee" over priced and very bad service. The Celebrity Indian near by is even worse.

You will find that it's a good social boat-habit for those crew adversely affected by curries to sleep under the cratch - or on the back deck - where they may not offend those of a more delicate constitution

I like collecting recipes

I now have a greater number of recipes than the likely number of days remaining to me!

We found the "Spice of Bruerne", (unsurprisinly at Stoke Bruerne!), very good.

That said Stoke Bruerne seems such an odd place to be stopping for a lock-side curry - somehow something at "The Boat" seems more appropriate!

Besides all the good ones in the "Golden Mile" of Leicester, there is also a fantastic one "Aroma Spice" just up from the moorings at Birstall, North Leicester. Service is superb, and the take-away food is of the same standard..........(and they delivered to the boat!!!!)

Has anyone tried the Indian take-away near the level-crossing at Parbold? They do the finest Chicken Shashlik I, or my wife, have ever tasted, anywhere in the world!

Labone at Oulton Broad also does a cracking curry and the service is excellent. They didnt even bat an eyelid when we turned up unannounced with 22 hungry people to feed. :cheers:

We tried there as well Alan. Whilst the food was good we found the prices high. The extra they charged for the king peawn version was not justified for the meagre number of shrimp you received. It is now on our banned list. The pub opposite much better value for money
