To celebrate National Curry Week, we've picked eight places where you can enjoy the dish in the city. Whether you like yours fiery and hot or creamy and mild, and whether from Thailand, India, Nepal or elsewhere, there are plenty of restaurants offering delicious curries in Bath.
The Mint Room
Starting with Indian, The Mint Room is a curry house with a difference. Don't be fooled by its unassuming location, next to a Sainsbury's supermarket, as the flavours cooked up by their talented chefs are delicious. Bringing a contemporary twist to the traditional, their Kashmiri Rogan Josh is a hit, cooked with Welsh lamb and aromatic spices, and look out for their vegetarian options too.
Koh Thai Tapas
Moving to Thailand, head to Koh Thai Tapas on Broad Street for relaxed Asian dining. Whilst the mainstays of their menu are served in a tapas-style, there are still a range of tasty curries to try too. You can’t go wrong with the Roast Duck Curry, beautifully contrasted with fruity notes of pineapple, cherry tomato and grapes, or for a milder option, choose their Yellow Curry, aromatic and flavoursome.
Another great choice for Thai food in Bath, Giggling Squid, on Saw Close, is the perfect choice for classic flavours and dishes in elegant surroundings. Sit under their flower-adorned pergolas and enjoy favourites such as punchy Thai Red and Green Curries, creamy Massaman and zesty Paneang, fragranced with lime leaves. Opposite the Theatre Royal Bath, it's ideal for a pre-show bite to eat!
If it's a taste of Morocco you're after, book a table at Tagine Zhor. The authentic bistro on North Parade takes pride in cuisine hailing from Fez, a city in the north of Morocco, with recipes passed down from the owner's grandmother, who was born there. Soak up the atmosphere in the restaurant, which is decorated with sparkling lanterns, embellished mirrors and traditional paintings, as you tuck into a delicious dish.
The family-run Noya's Kitchen, headed up by Noya herself, serves a true taste of Vietnam. With authentic classics like pho and spring rolls on the menu, for curry try their chicken version for a comforting and gentle dish. Open for lunch most days, make yourself free midweek to enjoy their food of an evening, during their Pho Wednesday nights.
Yak Yeti Yak
First opened in 2004, the friendly Yak Yeti Yak restaurant had a mission of bringing quality Nepalese cuisine to Bath back in the day – it's still the only Nepalese restaurant in the city. Family-run, Yak Yeti Yak is decorated with a mix of artefacts and memorabilia from their village, and has an area with cushions on the floor, meaning you can enjoy their tasty range of curries – many of which are meat-free – authentically!
To please the whole family, you can't go wrong with an evening at Wagamama. Serving rapid Pan-Asian cuisine, the respected chain of noodle restaurants has its Bath premises on George Street. Tuck into hearty ramen, spicy noodles and appetising curries, the Chicken Katsu variety being their all-time best-seller.
Bringing a loud and proud Caribbean dining experience to Bath, make for Turtle Bay for a hint of sunshine. Treat yourself to a cocktail whilst you peruse the menu – rum is at the heart of the drinks list, with more than 40 Caribbean varieties to choose from – and choose a vibrant dish embodying the island lifestyle, like Curry Goat Hash or Jerk Salmon.
