Mill Road Fare: Shukria’s Curry House

By | January 21, 2011

After two failed attempts at dinner, we were starting to wonder about this grand plan of ours! Thankfully Shukria’s Curry House didn’t disappoint.

Initial impressions

This Bangladeshi restaurant hasn’t been open very long, and we frankly didn’t hold out much hope for it. We thought it was going to be a bit of a “hole in the wall” but found it to actually be quite charming.

The food

The menu had a good selection of South Asian foods – the one’s you’d expect at most curry houses in Cambridge. Plus, some interesting house specials. I had the Saag Ghoasht and Kevin had the Naga Lamb. They were both quite oily, but very flavourful! We were particularly impressed with the unique style of nann (it was thiner and crispier than the normal stuff in Cambridge). Yum!

The portion sizes and pricing were spot on. And, it’s BYOB, which is a plus or minus depending on your pov!

It is clear once inside that they have tried hard to make the most of the limited space they have. It’s still a bit rough around the edges, but it’s coming along nicely.

The staff were excellent and the restaurant was also surprisingly family-friendly (3 of the 7 tables had kids).
