Curry week: Echo readers on their favorite Indian restaurant


Monday will see the launch of this year’s National Curry Week.

The annual event was launched in 1998 to celebrate one of the nation’s favorite dishes and has grown from year to year.

To celebrate the start of National Curry Week, the Echo asked readers to name their favorite Indian restaurants in South Essex.

And they didn’t disappoint, with over 200 people highlighting their best Indian restaurant.

Here are some of the most popular suggestions and why readers think the restaurant is the best in the business.

Spicy basil, Basildon

Joanne Cannon-Mills said, “Amazing food, nothing too much. I have never been disappointed with the food.

Claire Pryke said: “Amazing food and always above and beyond for customers with little finishing touches like birthday balloons.”

Katie Quinn said, “I’ve tried so many, but Basil Spice has captured the hearts of my whole family.

Heather Flynn said: “Very good food and very friendly staff who go the extra mile.”

Colette Boosey said: “Wonderful food and service and very accommodating in taste.”
