Iv always wondered,what is the difference between a Chinese curry and an Indian curry?

Iv always associated currys as a chinese thing,like chips and curry sauce etc.

The Chinese invented Chips & Curry sauce about a thousand years ago, the Indians found the secret recipe for Curry sauce on a curry powder sachet and they made it better.

Used to absolutely love Indian curry.

I never fancy them anymore.

Chinese all the way for me but it's really hard to find a good, consistent takeaway.

A good test is whether their "steak" tastes like you think cat food would.

I'm sorry, but you can't beat a bit of authentic dimsum for lunch and a proper chinese banquet for dinner is head and shoulders above anything else.

1) Chinese
2) Vietnamese ( good call Billy - try Viet opposite the Palace Stage Door next time you're in central London - cheap as chips and very good food)
3) Thai
4) Indian (too repetetive, unless I can be arsed to schlep down to Brick Lane I find it boring now tbh)

Default Don't ever use the word "curry"

in front of a real Indian cook.



They'll probably be too polite to say anything, but they'll hate it.



There's really no such thing as Indian, Chinese or Italian food. The regional cuisines of those places are so varied and distinctive that the homogenous stuff flogged under those names here often bears little relation to the real deal. For instance, a high proportion of the "Indian" places in the UK are run by Bengalis.



If you want proper Indian, Pakistani or Chinese cuisine, find a caff that caters to Indians, Pakistanis or Chinese - it'll probably be regionally specific, cheap, and immeasurably better than anything from a takeaway or curry house.



If you want proper regional Italian food in the UK, it's hard to find outside London, and it'll cost you.

Iam still unsure on the difference.Iv ordered plenty of curries from a chinese and i know exactly what iam going to get.

Iv never ever gone into an Indian and asked for a curry as i always thought they would look at you like an idiot.

On a chinese menu you have chicken curry etc but on and Indian menu iv never seen a curry.

Infact i might go into the local Indian tonight and ask for a curry.

Perhaps it's not binjuice but every chinese I've had in the last year or two have been bland and very heavy, but not in a good way.

T-bag is right, the Chinese's here probably taste nothing like the real thing, I've had Chinese in the U.S, which taste nothing like our version.

Can you say "cheap as chips" in relation to take-away food? Could get confusing.

See what you're saying Dodger. However, "cheap as nuoc-mam" didn't have the same ring to it.

By the way, if anyone does go to Viet, then take your own booze.
