You Never Forget Your First!
The Oakham Curry Club (OCC) is one of the world’s most respected reviewers of Indian cuisine. With multiple international franchises, we relentlessly scour the globe in pursuit of the crispiest poppadoms, the tastiest sauces and spiciest curries. On January 28th, 2022 the OCC Nova Scotia reviewed Curry Village as part of our hunt for the CHOTY (Curry House Of The Year) and in search of the very first OCC approved curry house in Canada. Members vote anonymously on 5 categories - and an average score is given to each restaurant we review. For Curry Village: Quality - 8.0/10 Service - 8.0/ 10 Value - 7.3/10 Customer Care - 6.6/10 Atmosphere - 7.3/10 With an average score of 7.5 Curry Village is OCC approved! Delivering strong quality and service, Curry Village performed admirably in its quest to live up to its own billing as "the finest Indian restaurant in town" (although the OCC membership abstains from certifying such a claim at this time until we have awarded our CHOTY later this year). Having enjoyed a variety of tasty curries including butter chicken, shrimp madras, paneer kadaiwala (a very welcome recommendation from the waitstaff), and a unique dhansak style lamb curry (a new and enjoyable experience for all attending members) the made in-house from scratch tandoor baked naan was exceptional and truly brought the meal together. Waitstaff required a bit of prompting/nudging at times but overall was friendly, made sound recommendations, and ensured the cold Kingfisher kept flowing. The atmosphere appropriately complemented the cuisine as the walls were adorned with countless photos of the Taj Mahal in addition to the striking feature wall of rupee bills behind the bar. In summary, we are delighted to make Curry Village the first ever OCC approved curry house in Nova Scotia and in Canada. We had a very pleasurable dining experience and would certainly recommend Curry Village to anyone in the mood for a curry. - OCC
