History of Curry

History of Curry in the UK and the important part played by Bangladeshi’s.
Although curry is an Indian dish modified for British tastes, it’s so popular that it contributes more than £5bn to the British economy.

1733 – Curry was served in the Norris Street Coffee House in Haymarket.

1747 – The first British cookery book containing an Indian recipe was ‘The Art of Cookery Made Plain & Easy’ by Hannah Glasse.

1810 – The first purely Indian restaurant was the Hindoostanee Coffee House which opened in 1810 near Portman Square, Mayfair. The owner of the restaurant, Sake Dean Mahomed was born in 1759 in present-day Patna, then part of the Bengal, India.

1940s and 1950s – most major Indian restaurants in London employed ex-seamen from Bangladesh, particularly from Syhlet (in the northeast corner of Bangledesh today). Many of these seamen aspired to open a restaurant of their own. After the Second World War, they bought bombed-out chippies and cafes selling curry and rice alongside fish, pies, and chips, which stayed open after 11 pm to catch the after-pub trade.

Eating hot curry after a night out in the pub became a tradition. As customers became increasingly fond of curry, these restaurants discarded British dishes and turned into inexpensive Indian takeaways and eateries.

After 1971 – there was an influx of Bangladeshi immigrants into Britain. Many entered the catering business. According to Peter Groves, co-founder of National Curry Week, “65%-75% of Indian restaurants” in the UK are owned by Bangladeshi immigrants.

The staff were very friendly & welcoming. Great menu to select from, starter portion was large & very tasty, main Pasanda dish lamb cooked to perfection with light fluffy pilau rice. Thoroughly enjoyed my visit & would definitely recommend a visit. I certainly will be back.
Lorraine M.
A lovely restaurant with very friendly and helpful staff, I ordered a Lamb RoganJosh for myself and a dish for my wife which wasn’t even on the menu but after checking with the Chef it was cooked from scratch in 10 to 15 minutes, fantastic service with a smile, and both dishes, along with a Peshwari nan were really excellent and authentic.
