The Indian restaurants of Bristol are as good as any found anywhere in the country, and while the city might not boast a concentrated area to compete with Manchester’s Curry Mile, Birmingham’s Balti Triangle or London’s Brick Lane, there is a restaurant with a suitably local approach to curry in the city. Nutmeg Indian Restaurant set themselves apart by attempting to source all of their ingredients from within 3 miles of their location on The Mall in Clifton, right by the Clifton Suspension Bridge. Their menu is authentically Indian – taking inspiration from all 29 states of the great nation – and that means curries, tandoori fresh meats and fresh sundries that even more labeled with the region from which the dish originates.

India is a huge country, but at heart, it is more a patchwork of regions than one cohesive nation. What else would one expect from a land of over a billion people, which spreads from the heights of the Himalayas to the tip of the peninsula in the Indian Ocean, from the Thar desert on the border with Pakistan in the West to the rolling, tea tree covered hills of Darjeeling and Assam? Nutmeg Indian Restaurant, Bristol’s newest Indian restaurant tries to bring all 29 states into play through their “Menu 29”, which brings flavours from up and down the country to The Mall in Clifton.
If you’re heading to Nutmeg Indian Restaurant, prepare for a tour de force. From the north come Punjabi samosas and seekh kebabs, Delhi style tandoori tikka and butter chicken and Amritsari cod; from the South there are Goan pork chops, Keralan salmon tikka and the Tamil Nadu classic of Beef madras. From up the coast in the East, one can try Telugu lamb shank and Sharabi Jhinga, Odisha state style king prawns with fresh mango and chillies and from the borderlands with Bangladesh and Myanmar, there are West Bengal grilled seabass and Nagaland diced pork curry with the infamous Naga chillies. If you head to The Mall in Clifton, you’re in for an Indian treat: book ahead for a Bristol curry house that really stands out from the norm.
Very friendly, welcoming and attentive staff, and the food was fantastic. The unique popadom accompaniment were so good that we ate so many that we couldn't finish our main courses, but they kindly packaged up our leftovers so we could take them home. Will be recommending to everyone.
Delicious food and good portion sizes Great ambience with attentive friendly staff. Highly recommend this restaurant and will definitely return soon. A brilliant find in a central location
