Currying flavour (special offer)

patsCurry crazy Brits will blow more than £30,000 on Indian grub in their lives, so says the Curry Club. The average Brit will splash out £20-a-month cooking Indian food at home, according to new research published in the 2013 Cobra Good Curry Guide. It means that over a 50-year period we will each spend £30,864 on curries. And, despite the recession, the guide claims that UK curry houses are thriving.

The UK’s 9,000 curry restaurants attract 2.5 million customers a week, according to Curry Club statistics. Pat Chapman, author of the guide, is confident the industry will ride out the current recession.  He says, “There is doom and gloom being talked about all restaurants. They’re being hit by the recession like everyone else. But in the long run, it will be good for the sector. Those that offer good food, good service and good value will survive.”

There are close on 9,000 Indian Restaurants and Balti Houses restaurants in the British Isles. The new Cobra Good Curry Guide, the 11th edition, identifies the nation’s favourite food at 1,000 venues. The Guide costs £14.95, was established in 1983, is in its 30th year and has 384 full colour pages. New features include website details and postcodes to assist navigation.
