The Curry Club

Discussions about restaurants, cafes, coffee shops or bars in Cambodia. Feel free to write any reviews you have, whether its the best burger you've had in Phnom Penh or the worse pizza in sihanoukville, we want to read it! Discussions about Khmer dishes are also in here, or you can leave your own. If you own a restaurant, feel free to let the expat community know about it here so that we can come check it out. Found a favorite cafe or have a place we should avoid? Tell us about it. Asian recipes & questions are always welcome.

I'm with Andy on the subject of adding chips to anything with the only exception being a roast (pork, lamb or beef) which has the roast spuds. Any other meal is fair game.
I remember being in France a few years ago down near Calais and there were these chip vans along the street so thought I'd give them a go. Bloody beaut they were! Generous serving and reasonable price. Got over to England a couple of days later and was to be honest disappointed with the fish and chippery's there.
But and so as not to derail the thread, I did a 3 month exchange with the Royal Air Force (RAF) and I was based at RAF Lyneham which is not far from Swindon. A short walk from the front gate was a Bangladesh restaurant which served the best curries I have tasted before or since. All the waiters wore immaculate black and white outfits and every table would have at least three or more blokes waiting on the customers, the food was as I said incredibly good and we'd wash it down with I think it was Kingfisher beers. It was the go to place at least once a week as it was good value as well. But to be honest I don't know how regional it was as the majority of dishes were the standard ones you'd find in an Indian restaurant if in name only.
And yes the local fish and chippery was disappointing to say the least.
Do you make your own curries Andy or just get takeaway's?

I must add, chips in Belgium are very good.
Fish and chips too I think are better in the north of the UK.
Yes, I can cook my own Currys. I did have a bar/restaurant in Koh Kong for 3 years, the curry night went well. There's some previous posts on this thread with some of the dishes I have cooked.

Interesting. I've had a few good curries in Swindon. The town itself is a bit of a dump but the surrounding countryside is lovely.

The shami kababs we're a tad on the small size, but you see for my starter I added a few small chips. One thing is I like vinegar on my chips, I also like Achar dishes.
The main was not Keema, but I suppose that's it when you order by food panda, if the restaurant does not have what you order, they can replace it with something else near to the dish.
That was not too bad, but the other day I ordered 2 portions of Rasmarli, and received 2 energy drinks. Disappointed there because I don't like the sweet energy drinks.

All in all the above meal was good and of quality.

I agree with you there, that there is some nice countryside in Wiltshire. About Swindon I remember the magic roundabout mainly. But outside I am sure I had a good Pheasant dish.
