Whether you're visiting for the afternoon or for a short break, Derby is a great little city with plenty to see and do. Located in Derbyshire alongside the River Derwent, Derby is the UK's most central city and ideally placed to explore the beautiful Peak District. Other key visitor attractions include the Silk Mill museum of industry in Derwent Valley, the city museum and art gallery and the gothic cathedral. Head to Markeaton Park in the northwest to see a beautiful boating lake and craft village and visit the iPro stadium to cheer on a county football match. After a busy day of sightseeing and activity, you can enjoy a lavish meal at one of Derby's excellent Indian restaurants.
There are Indian restaurants dotted all across Derby, and as the city is compact and very easy to navigate you can get to most of them quickly, either by foot or by public transport. The Cathedral Quarter is a good location to find Indian restaurants in Derby along with the main retail area of the city centre. Other great Derby Indian restaurants can be found in Allestree, Castleward and Spondon. Many of the Indian restaurants in Derby are situated close to shops, bars, cafes and entertainment, so you can start off an evening of film, music or theatre with a great meal!
There are various award-winning Indian restaurants in Derby as well as local favourites which are always packed out at busy dining times, but Quandoo users rate Okra on Friar Gate in the Cathedral Quarter. Boasting a stylish and historic location, the restaurant offers fine dining and an exclusive experience for those seeking something a bit special. It does get very busy so remember to book in advance. The Royal Raj in Allestree also comes highly recommended. It’s located in the busy Park Farm Shopping Centre so you can enjoy some retail therapy before heading upstairs to enjoy traditional Mughal cuisine and fantastic service. The house specials are all excellent and include the mouth-watering Kashmiri chicken chaska. Try Tamarind in Spondon, too, if you’re looking for more unusual dishes served in a modern, luxurious interior. The slow-cooked fillet of lamb with south Indian spices is a great favourite with Quandoo diners!
It's all too easy to stick to the same old favourites when you dine out, but the quality of the Indian restaurants in Derby makes it even easier to try something new.
