The North West is home to some of the best curry houses in the UK, and the good people of Blackpool certainly do not miss out on the action. Down in the South Shore, the local dispensers to the curry cognoscenti are Lee Raj on Squires Gate Lane. Just a short hop from the seafront and even closer to Starr Gate tram and even closer to that from Squires Gate railway station, they offer up delicacies from all over India, with a menu that features both curry house classics, tandoori favourites and chef’s specials that take in the length and breadth of the subcontinent, from Sri Lanka all the way up India to Bangladesh and across to Pakistan. Book a table at Lee Raj and prepare for one of the best curries in Blackpool, if not the whole Fylde Coast.
There are few more popular ways to spend a Friday night in the North of England than a slap up curry and a few pints, and all over, from Hull to Blackpool, one can find top notch Indian restaurants that are more than capable of satisfying that demand. In the South Shore of Blackpool, right next to Squires Gate railway station, they have a curry house that is the equal of any found in the town in the form of Lee Raj. They serve up specialities from the whole subcontinent, with south Indian fish dishes, northern curries with meat and plenty of fire, tangy Bangladeshi delicacies and much more besides. Jump the tram down from the Pleasure Beach, the Prom and the Pier and taste the best that India has to offer in Blackpool.
Begin your curry in Lee Raj on the South Shore with a special little something from the tandoori, always a delight at Indian restaurants in Blackpool and indeed beyond. All the highlights are there, from chicken, lamb, potato and paneer tikka, lamb chops and seekh kebabs, as well as fried favourites such as pakoras, samosas and puri. Follow that up with one of their chef’s recommendations: Methi Raj with fenugreek and a protein of your choice, Raj Tilock cooked medium and sweet with cinnamon and fresh yoghurt or Shatkora Torkari, a Bangladeshi-style sour curry with the eponymous native citrus fruit and a thick sauce. Book a table at Lee Raj and make the most of one of the best curry houses in Blackpool, right on your doorstep on Squires Gate Lane.
