In addition to my beloved Curry Leaf Café, below are my picks of other good places to go for curry in our region.

Raipur at Pevensey Bay

Bangladeshi Chef Sarwar Chowdhury has an impressive CV and brings excellent modern and traditional Indian cuisine to the local residents of Pevensey near Eastbourne. This is a real hidden gem. When I worked in the corporate world we would often bring VIP guests from the city and they were always impressed.

Kayal, West Byfleet

Kayal is a bit of an institution, having provided authentic South Indian Keralan cuisine for years. Their original Leicester branch was made famous by the Hairy Bikers, but don’t let that put you off. The food and service is excellent. The menu is a comprehensive bible to Keralan cuisine, which tends to be lighter with an emphasis on seafood. This no frills establishment focuses on quality. Highly recommended.

A highly recommended Bangladeshi restaurant with familiar and unusual dishes on the menu. The restaurant prides itself on using fresh produce and taking great care to create distinct flavours.

Multi-award winning and still one of the best. Great ambience – a buzzy atmosphere and fresh, highly flavoured cuisine.

The best onion Bhaji in Brighton (huge, crisp and non-greasy) and their tandoori platter is excellent quality, each type of meat carefully matched with a different marinade.

Despite being a bit out of the way and housed in a somewhat grotty looking venue, there is some great authentic regional Indian cuisine here with amazing flavours. I recall black pepper king prawns as a particular highlight. Great value too.

 

 

 

 

 

Others I have heard people rave about but haven’t tried myself yet are: Parvel in Kemp Town and Planet India. Have you been? What do you think?
