Today, there are a lot of curry houses which has literally sprung up everywhere. A decade back, the scenario was not like that, and if people had the wish of eating curry, they had to go to that same old restaurant in their neighborhood, or if they wanted to try something new, had to drive a long way to find another curry house. Things have changed a lot nowadays, and there are at least ten curry houses in your neighborhood. Today, we are spoilt with choices, and therefore don’t be put off just by the location of the restaurant.

Time of the Week
Considering the time of the week is really important when you are visiting a curry house. Usually, the curry houses do a great business on weekends after the bars and pubs are closed. But, unless you drink regularly, it is affirmative that you will not see the curry house after closing time of the bar. Therefore, you need to move on to something else for judging the standard of the curry house. Now, the best thing that you can do is you can drive past the curry houses in a normal day, around normal meal hours. It is imperative that you will see not a lot of people inside, but if you can see a considerable amount of people inside having their food, that means the restaurant is well known among the natives, and if the natives like the foods being served, it is sure as hell, that you will also like the food.

You may also consult online reviews and see for any negative comments about the restaurant.
