The Curry Village changes very little from year to year. The owners come from Bangladesh, but they're equally at home with all the principal styles of Indian cooking. Despite their protestations to the contrary, most of their dishes are hot; if they're not hot their fiery. The shrimp phatia is a good example. It's a Persian dish from Gujerat and it's hot, but the flavour and texture of the onions, tomatoes and lime are perfectly balanced. They have a tandoor oven imported from India and their tandoori chicken and shrimp, marinated for 24 hours in spiced yogurt, are crisp and moist and served with raita and fin hot, buttery nan. Everybody likes the butter chicken, the sag lamb and the dhansaks. We also admire the onion bhaji and the rice pilaf with peas, onions and fresh herbs. This is one of the few Indian restaurants we know of that has a sweet of the day, and mangos are almost always on the list. Most of the cooking is a la minute, so meals are apt to move slowly, but thy don't use MSG or additives of any kind, and cook with vegetable oil, not ghee. The restaurant is up a long flight of stairs, but the dinning room is warm and comfortable and on a summer night Indian music from the soundtrack hangs softly in the air.
