Indian Restaurants in Liverpool

 Is there a hot hotspot for Indian restaurants in Liverpool?

London’s got its ‘Banglatown’ centred on Brick Lane, Manchester has its ‘Curry Mile’, Birmingham, it’s the ‘Balti Triangle’, but is there a zingy zone where there’s a higher concentration of Liverpool’s Indian restaurants and curry houses than elsewhere in the city? The answer is a tentative yes. Liverpool’s Indian restaurant ‘curry quarter’ (we’ll preserve the lowercase rendering until the phrase really catches on) is centred on the wedge-shaped space defined by Renshaw Street and Bold Street, with the pointy end at St Luke’s Church and the fat end of the wedge up at Liverpool Central train station. Essentially, if you have to pick a district – these days there’s a local Indian restaurant in every Liverpool neighbourhood – it would be the Ropewalks.

    Exploring Indian restaurants in Liverpool’s city centre

    The Ropewalks isn’t exclusively synonymous with Indian restaurants in Liverpool, it’s often the default location for exploring Liverpool’s dining and drinking scene whichever cuisine you care to sample. So, if you’re scouting for spice and you’re having trouble booking a table at a recommended Liverpool Indian restaurant in the Ropewalks district or thereabouts, spread your wings. There’s a crop of Indian restaurants in Liverpool’s historic Georgian Quarter, more to the north of the city centre as well as at the waterfront and docklands. We’d also recommend you follow your nose to find a couple of good Indian restaurants in Liverpool’s rapidly redeveloping Baltic Triangle – not quite the Balti Triangle but we’re getting there!

    What’s on the menu at Liverpool’s best Indian restaurants

    Liverpool’s Indian restaurant scene, while not as famous as those in other major UK centres, is thriving and menus tend to typify what’s hot and what’s not in terms of the nation’s famously curry-crazy population. Here’s a quick top five you’re sure to find on the menus of the most democratic of Liverpool’s Indian restaurants.
  3. 3.

    <ol>

    Jalfrezi – the most popular dish in the UK’s Nepalese and Indian restaurants, Liverpool included, jalfrezi consists of marinated meats fried with bell peppers, cabbage, onions and tomatoes to produce a dry, thick sauce that can range from medium to scorching hot.
  4. 4.

    Chicken tikka masala – the late Robin Cook, former MP, declared it a national dish. It’s origins are controversial, but this curry of tandoor-roasted skewers (tikka) of chicken in a creamy, masala gravy is certainly delicious. Butter chicken – this dish of yoghurt and spice-marinated chicken served in a mild, creamy sauce has its roots in the regional Indian cuisine of the Punjab, developed and introduced to the world by Kundan Lal Gujral, owner of the mighty Moti Mahal family of restaurants in Delhi.
  5. 5.

    Chaat – any number of fried dough-based street food-style snacks that are perfect as an appetiser. There’s a universe of local-regional variations but you’ll recognise potato aloo chaat, bhelpuri and chana chaat on the menu at many Indian restaurants in Liverpool. Tandoori chicken – the magic of the traditional clay oven from India’s mountainous north, the tandoor, at its purest. Tandoori chicken consists of chunks of chicken marinated in yogurt and tandoori masala spice mix, with cayenne pepper, red chilli powder or Kashmiri red chilli powder added to give the meat a characteristic red hot colour. The meat is stacked on skewers and lowered into the tandoor to roast at high temperatures, staying tender and juicy and taking on the flavour of the charcoal – perfect.
