Mint & Mustard – Cardiff
Mint & Mustard were Cardiff’s first destination Indian restaurant and some say they’ve never stopped being the best curry that the Welsh capital has to offer. Specialising in Keralan cuisine, the restaurant’s chefs are experts in their style of cooking and can seriously test your taste buds with the fiery cheera parippu curry with red chillies and curry leaves.
Chai – Cardiff
This award-winning Indian bistro is a great place to both start the day with a delicious chai tea and to finish it with a street-food style burger made with chick peas and shredded paneer. But for something truly different, visit around lunchtime and take on the signature dish from 2015’s Welsh Curry Chef of the Year. And make sure you’ve got plenty of water on the table!
Spice Quarter – Cardiff
Cardiff’s Spice Quarter is a slick, modern curry house which sees fine dining and food as a “pleasure rather than a necessity”. And that philosophy shows in every part of the experience with brilliant service, expert 5-star chefs and a melee of spices to awaken the senses before a big night out.
Purple Poppadom – Cardiff
Smart, sophisticated and not afraid of food with a kick, this popular multi award-winning curry house is a perfect fit for the UK’s top 50. But it isn’t all tikka masala and chicken bhuna here, oh no, instead you’ll find some seriously imaginative dishes to break away from the norm and start your night with some spice.
Moksh – Cardiff
The mantra here is “Indian cuisine and beyond” and Moksh certainly live up to it. From the Welsh lamb chops marinated in Indian paste and cooked Tandoori style to the infamous Chicken Bang Bang (A Goan Xacutti recipe of 21 ingredients mixed with peri-peri sauce and scorpion/naga chillies), one of the hottest curries in the world.
