Where is the best Curry in Sheffield?

This is a question that often turns into an argument nearly as heated as the dinner/lunch/tea debate. Whether it’s a delivery, take away or a trip to an Indian restaurant, there’s so many great options in Sheffield these days, one particular restaurant has coined the phrase ‘reyt good curreh’, more on those guys later.

It would seem unfair to rank them so here’s a few picks that you can guarantee excellence when looking for Sheffield’s best curry house.

Urban Choola
