We had a cookery session with Anil last Sunday, and he was very knowledgeable and the food was delicious. He showed us how to make chicken curry, pilau rice, onion bhajiis, lentil dhal and naan bread, and he cooked it with less chilli for us...we are not keen on very hot food, and showed us how to balance the spices. It was all very aromatic and tasty, and cooked without any additives, and had no grease, like alot of other Indian restaurants. They definitely live up to their healthy Indian food claims. We came away very full and with the knowledge to make our own, and Anil has sent us recipes so we didn't need to make any notes on the day. He explained about the reasons for the use of the ingredients and how to source better quality spices and also some recipes for traditional Indian health drinks. I would really recommend this session to anyone who has struggled with making authentic Indian food at home, or even experienced cooks who would like some tips on more healthy and more deliciously fresh recipe versions. Very inspirational and great value for money. We were there for three hours.More

Came here last night for a sit down meal. Curry on the curve is beautiful inside and a very relaxed experience. All the staff were very friendly and helpful, and Anil was very knowledgeable and happy to answer questions The food was incredible. The paneer...tikka and tardka dhal were full of flavour and so fresh. Brilliant variety for vegetarians. Will 100% be returning and taking part in one of the cookery sessions Thankyou :)More

We had a cookery evening at Curry on the curve and it was an amazing and enlightening experience. Our host Anil was superb explaining all the spices and methods of cooking used at the restaurant and we got to make bhaji's, Nan Bread and I...even got to put my bread in the Tandoor which was great fun. We then got to eat the food that had by cooked by us and for us by Anil and it was great. Time flew by and I would thoroughly recommend the food and the cookery course.More

After having to reschedule this 3 times due to covid it was definitely worth the wait. Anil was more than welcoming and accomodating from the moment we walked through the door. He showed great knowledge and expertise during the cooking lesson whilst making it entertaining...and fun. The dishes we made were all delicious and even better we knew exactly what ingredients went into them. Will definitely be back soon for another meal.More

We were a family of four and had excellent, freshly cooked food with great service. The chef could not have been more helpful and was fully prepared to accommodate everyone's likes. The food was all piping hot and served with fresh ingredients, unlike some "Indian"...restaurants you could taste the herbs and spices used. I would not hesitate to go again.More

Booked for 4 with good intentions based on previous reviews (was looking for curry house in the area). Not great, only people in there all night (Friday?!), so zero atmosphere - genuinely thought staff meant well but couldn’t make up for the overall poor experience...- very bland and mediocre take on basic Indian dishes - I chose Vindaloo and it was pretty tame. Also found a very long hair in my food as soon as it arrived which didn’t exude confidence for what we were about to receive! Having problems balancing my experience with other reviews for this place - I would not go back - it seemed almost like a dispatch centre for JustEat at times - but without other diners just made for a cold and quite soulless experience. Must be better in the area - would do more research next time in Newport!More

Wow wow wow What can I say? 4 hours of the most in detail curry cooking lesson I could of ever wished for 🙌🏻❤️ enjoyed every single second 🥘 We were talked through spices in so much detail, where to buy, how to use, when...to put in the dishes & how to not over complicate your cooking. We made onion bahjee, a daahl, a spicy chicken curry, pilau rice & naan breads in the tandoor oven 🍽 Every single thing was made as healthy as possible and all of this, I can safely say was healthy 💪🏻 If you are local to Newport, please check out the restaurant for a meal or book yourself a cooking lesson (they are booked up till March 2022 though) Such a brilliant night and full of laughs 😂❤️ & a great curry at the end ❤️ Thank you Curry on the Curve 🍽🙌🏻🥘 xxxMore

Food was amazing as always. Not one complaint about the food or the service. In fact all attending were nothing but complimentary. Individual needs were catered for and everyone had a fantastic evening. My thanks to chef Anil and his team for helping to make...our evening memorable once again.More

First time visit to Newport as a stopover for the rugby in Cardiff. No issues finding a table and whilst the area is a little rundown don't let that put you off. Everything was great..food...service...vfm etc. I had spicy lamb biryani and my partner had...lamb bhunha and both dishes were exquisite. Rice, chips, naan all very good...huge portions....this place is a must.More

My wife and I booked the cookery lesson that they hold and I can not praise the restaurant enough. The evening was fantastic with great information on the spices and ingredients used and how best to prepare the food, which was then served to us...and tasted stunning, best ever. I strongly recommend you book one of these sessions as I am sure you will not be disappointed. The owners also give meals to the homeless each week which is highly commendable.More
