On Friday night I was asked By a friend to meet her at the International Curry house in Morley Street, this was a trip down memory lane for me as this was the place I ate my first curry 30 years ago. In fact when I used to go with the guys I was working with I used to have egg and chips until they persuaded me to have a keema curry. I’ve been a fan ever since.
It must be 25 yrs since I was last there it’s a bit bigger now and it was bustling plenty of atmosphere. I remembered a few faces too, older and wiser just like me !! but the owner was a little greyer than myself(quite a bit actually). Popadoms and condiments served as soon as you sat down and plenty of them. I didn’t have my usual lamb chop starter because the other two weren’t having one so I ordered Lamb and Spinach balti, it was fabulous. Anne had chicken and potato balti whilst Janet had a Keema. The portions were served in only what I could describe as little coal scuttles but there was plenty of it . I was glad I hadn’t had the lamb chops after all. Each main course came with either naan bread , 3 chippatis or rice which was included in the price. The Chippatis were the best I’d ever had, served hot with my meal.
I was really impressed with my meal, fast pleasant service, tasty hot food, good value for money, a warm multi-cultural atmosphere, I will certainly revist soon and not leave it another 25yrs as I’m not sure I’ll be around then and if I am I won’t be going into Bradford for a curry.
