Sunrise Curry Club: yum yum yum

The Rose & Crown on Hoe St have recently launched the Sunrise Curry Club on a Friday night. After sampling a few of the local beverages, a man’s thoughts turn to food, so last night myself and my companions decided to try the curry out.

The Sunrise Curry Club is in the main bar area of the pub and runs until around 10pm on a Friday. The menu was reasonable, with four meat dishes (around £8) and four vegetarian dishes (around £5) to choose from. The dishes all come with a choice of rice or roti as an accompaniment. We kicked off in traditional fashion with poppadoms, which were quite tasty, if not spectacular.

The main meals were very good for the price. I had a lamb curry, which was nice and tender, not super-spicy but then I’m not a spice fiend. We also had Dahl of the Day (Spinach and Tomato) and a Spinach and Potato curry. The Dahl of the Day was particularly good, with a nice home-made taste.

In total, the meal cost £28 for four mains and four poppadoms to start, which I think is fairly reasonable. I think the Sunrise Curry Club is a separate entity to the pub itself and we had to order and pay with the dedicated Curry Club waitress. The service was good, and I’d be happy to eat there again.

Obviously, Walthamstow, and Hoe St in particular, is fairly flush with Indian restaurants, and it’s perhaps unfair to compare a pub Curry Club to a dedicated Indian restaurant. For the price, and the convenience of not having to move from the pub to a restaurant, I’d definitely recommend the Sunrise Curry Club.
