“ Buffet style Indian Restuarant / Address: 19 Holderness Road, Hull, HU8 7NA / Tel: 01482 213888 „
We went to Curry last night and had a fab time. The service was really friendly and the food was brilliant everything was really tasty. One of my all time favourites are fish pakoras but it so hard to get nice ones. I was really surprised to see that the ones at curry were the best iv ever had, they were really tasty and just melted in my mouth (LOVELY!).
There were so many curries on offer and my friend who was vegetarian had plenty to choose from. There was a panner balti which is like an indian cheese which was especially lovely, even the non veg eaters amongst the table had a good helping of this. They had atleast 3 other vegetarian curries on offer which were all equally as nice. They had a fantastic salad counter with pasta salads, chickpea salads and different chutneys and pickles which are all well worth a try.
I have only just discovered this gem so i will be dining at Curry regularly from now on. I recommend that everyone tries this place out as you cant really fault it.
We turned up hoping there were tables available. We don't live in the area so had decided to ring and book a table. Although we rang several times, no one answered the phone so we had to take pot luck which isn't good if you don't live near enough to pop in and book. Food etc was good but they really need to get people to answer the phone for bookings.
I love Indian Food and was very pleased to see that Hull had now got its only Indian Buffet. We booked a table for 30ppl for my wedding anniversary and was surprised that we we could all sit together. The staff had set the table out in a lovely U shape with table confetti, balloons and banners on the table, it looked lovely and made us feel very special. The staff were lovely and friendly upon arrival and explained everything to all of my guests. The wine and drinks selection was fantastic and met all of our requirements and were very reasonably priced. A few of my guests were vegetarians and the staff explained that they were some vegetarian dishes on the buffet but they could also order some dishes which they would bring out to the table. So we ordered a selection of dishes,Saag Paneer, Mix veg Madras and Alloo Gobi. The range of starters was huge, there were hot and spicy ribs, samosas, onion bhajis, Chicken Tikka, tandoori wings the list is endless. The range of sauces was very good, with a variety of sweet, hot, tangy and refreshing flavours. They all went well with the starters leaving a lovely authentic taste. When we finished our starters our waitress took our naan orders so we ordered a selection of garlic and coriander, garlic, plain and peshwari. And then went to go and get our mains. All of us came back with a selection of our favourite curries on our plate and when we came back our fresh naans were on our table and all our plates had been taken away!!! (very efficient staff!!) the vegetarian dishes were on the table and were sizzling hot. Everyone tucked in and i couldnt of asked for better food or service. The staff surprised us with a mountain of proferoles for me and my husband to wish us a Happy Anniversary. I can honestly say that this has got to be the nicest place that i have eaten at with such lovely service where the staff treat you like a friend and the atmosphere is welcoming and cosy.
Would recommend curry to everyone!!!!
I work nearby to the restaurant and have eaten there a few times, it's great just after 5pm when it is not too busy. The food is delicious with much choice and good value. I have also collected a couple of takeaways (they don't deliver) the food was piping hot and made fresh. If you're not from the area you can get a bus to just outside or if you're driving park down Dansom Lane South, Wilton Street or Thomas Street and you are only about a 1 minute walk away.
Have been twice now and think it is a fantasic place , lets you try some foods you would never chose on a standard indian menu . Food was hot service was good and friendly staff , very clean would def recomend to anyone, and for the price what more do you want .
We had a lovely meal in curry on a sun lunch time, i could not fault the food or service, will definatley we going back soon and we live in Flambourough so not a short drive away but well worth a visit,
When it comes to eating out it's something I enjoy doing very much. Whilst staying at my mates and cleaning out her house as she's moving she decided to treat me to a meal out in Hull and knowing my love of all things Foreign found this little resteraunt!
19 Holderness Road
Telephone: 01482 213888
Not a huge resteraunt however it does seat about 100 people all around square or oblong tables. There are a couple of 'booths' to sit in (we did) that are huge and more private areas and made up of material covered benches though do be careful when fetching and carrying in food cos there are steps down these areas which are flipping stupid in my opinion as I tripped over more than once! The rest of the tables are surrounded by high back chairs and on the walls paintings and flowers are dotted about giving the resteraunt a really nice contemporary feel.
The resteraunt does have a very modern approach to dining and feels incredibly clean with its laminate light flooring and well lit up and well stocked bar.
In the daytime the menu is alot smaller than at night with about 20 different dishes on offer in the day and about 50 at night. I can only comment on the night time menu which is £9.95 a head (£4.95 child) or £4.95 and £3.95 for a child in the daytime.
The food area is actually down some steps to the back of the resteraunt and square in shape. Around the edges of the room you have pots, plates and dishes of food and as it's a buffet you just help yourself to as much food as you like whenever you like of course!
There were starters such as samosas, onion bhajis, bbq ribs, lots of vegetables to make up salads and side dishes, sauces were plentiful too and not very many main courses and only a couple or rices on offer and dessert was simply ice cream.
The food however was nice, fresh and you could see the chef and kitchen staff busily cooking to the back of the food through glass windows. Everything was labelled well was incredibly important for my Vegetarian friend!
However all in all the choice of food was actually a little disappointing really. My Vegetarian side kick found little in the way of main courses in particular a difficult task. Sure as she could eat a plate of rice and nibble a couple of starters such as veggie filled samosas but her choices were really limited and I think she ended up with a plate full of a plain Veggie curry and that was that. However it was the same for me in the way of main courses really. As a meat eater I actually had more choice in the way of starters and my main gripe was that everything was the same in hotness levels. So me.... I like mild food but the choices were like madras, jalfrezi etc rather than offering an array of options to suit my palette and to take into consideration we don't all want to eat blow your brains out food.
Saying that though I did manage to get a belly full and can't complain at the taste of the foods that were on offer at all. We did also manage to hear someone asking for a naan bread which they cook to order and which we were not told about. When we did ask if we could have one with our meal we were asked if we wanted plain or garlic and when they did come out they were freshly prepared, warm and totally gorgeous and whats more included in the price!
We were not bothered by staff however they never asked if we were ok either which to be fair we were but it's always nice to be asked eh?! The only thing we did feel bothered by was although it was only around 9pm when we left the resteraunt the staff were hoovering around our feet and made us feel a little uncomfortable.
Not the best Indian food I have ever eaten but certainly not the worst by a long shot. I appreciate the food being warm and fresh though I feel that more choice should be available and although there are meant to be 50 dishes there didn't feel that many. Also dessert was a bore so we chose not to bother with it. It's in a good location in the town centre, there is parking available and the drinks are reasonable and it's a nice looking restaurant but if you like a lot of choice Indian food wise this may not be for you, however if you prefer quality of dishes opposed to having choice available go for it by all means!
