Announcing our Latest Edition
Cobra Good Curry Guide
'Britains Top Restaurants As Chosen By You'
Edited by Pat Chapman
Since 1984, the Good Curry Restaurant Guide has identified the UK’s Best Curry Restaurants. Sponsored once again by Cobra, (continuously since 1992) the Guide has been copied and plagiarised, especially on the web. But like so many first-timers, it remains not only the brand-leader, but the one Guide where you get truthful, often very critical opinion. And it is now the only such Guide in print. Produced periodically, each edition is eagerly awaited by its followers (as an iconic collector’s piece). They relish it for its honesty, accuracy, humour and entertainment value. They also welcome it because they can be a part of it, fulfiling the jacket’s strap line which states ‘Britain’s Best Restaurants As Chosen By You’.
The Guide’s main strength is that it really is compiled by using comments from hundreds of members of the public whose names are listed in full. Websites such as Trip Advisor do not name their contributors; consequently the reliability of their reports is unsubstantiated. Restaurant websites invariably praise themselves and many claim to be Award winners, with no reputable Award to back up the claim. Though most carry up to date menu information some restaurant sites omit their address and/or hours.
The main body of the Cobra Good Curry Guide contains information on over one thousand restaurants all around the UK (selected from 9,000 contenders) with longer entries for the best restaurants and simplified listings for less important, but none-the-less, deserving restaurants. New trends, such as Indian Tapas and cafés have been identified and explained. Entries in London come first, then England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales in county order, each with thumbnail county maps.
Each entry includes restaurant address with street name, phone number, postcode and website. A general description follows then menu examples, price, style and quality of food, service, vegetarian availability, BYO, etc. The pages of the Guide are punctuated with colour pictures of restaurant interiors, exteriors, their food, and chefs and owners. An easy-to-find (at the end of the book) town index speeds readers to the page(s) containing the restaurant of their choice.
The Guide’s introduction section contains entertaining and informative features. We celebrate 30 years of The Curry Club. We tell the Cobra story and publish some innovative recipes, created by for Cobra Guide editor Pat Chapman. Our popular fun feature, 'The Currynation' relates the curry happenings some bizarre, some funny, some straight, all real. Our Cuisine feature examines 25 different culinary styles such as Afghani, Gujarati, Indonesian and Sri Lankan and our very extensive A - Z menu glossary defines every term used at the restaurant, and is so accurate, it is now used as the industry standard. Probably the most eagerly awaited feature is the much-read 2013 A-List and Top 100 List. As usual there will be some delistings and some exciting New Entrants.
Edited by Curry Club founder, Pat Chapman the Cobra Good Curry Guide is regarded by media and the restaurants alike, as the definitive work of its kind.
