Indian Curry Basmati House



I vividly remember my first encounter with the Indian Curry Basmati House a few years back, when I was walking down Severinstrasse and an irresistible smell wafted past – a basmati and curry scent that felt totally out of place between the innumerable nail salons and tanning parlours. It was so good my mouth started watering instantly. At the time this joint was nothing but a tiny snack bar with just a few seats; and after exiting the restaurant one was best advised to get in the shower fully clothed, so intense was the smell. Meanwhile Severinstrasse has transformed, with boutiques, ice-cream shops and small cafés popping up all over. The Indian Curry Basmati House recognised the sign of the times and relocated to a much larger, shiny new space with many more seats and a functioning air extraction system. Thankfully, the food has remained as good as it ever was, and the smell is still divine. On the menu are typical staples as well as delicious specialities, including the beautifully spicy chili masala mushrooms and dal dansag, a sweet-and-sour lentil stew with spinach, garlic and fruit. The menu is regularly updated, with changing lunchtime offers.
