It's National Curry Week! 

Second to naan! The best places to enjoy a curry in Swindon
Curry guide Swindon
Lamb pasanda, Chicken chat, vindaloo or prawn biriani, whatever your favourite sometimes nothing hits the spot like a good old curry.
And with it being National Curry Week from 12 - 18 October, what better time to put together a guide to the best Indian restaurants in Swindon.
We've also listed the takeaway experts who can get a curry in a hurry straight to your doorstep - with FREE delivery.
Old Town
Biplob Balaka Lounge Swindon
Traditional Indian & Bangledeshi cooking in contemporary surroundings - Balaka Lounge above -  this Wood Street favourite serves probably the best Chicken Supreme in the country. 
Top dish: like we've said, the Biplob Chicken Supreme - chicken breast stuffed with minced lamb and cooked in a coconut sauce - needs to be tasted to be believed!
Mela Indian Restaurant Swindon
Located in Victoria Road, with modern decor on two floors and bang up-to-date Indian cooking to match.
Top dish: King Prawn Shajahani barbecued in the Mela tandoori then cooked in honey, cream and yoghurt and a special almond sauce.
Town centre
The Khyber
Swindon's oldest Indian restaurant, established way back in 1962 before the Beatles even had a number one, and still the best on Swindon's 'Curry Corner'.
Top dish: Lamb or Chicken tikka - order as a main course. We couldn't decide which one, but with nearly 50 years experience you can be sure they know how to cook the UK's favourite curry.
Aby's Indian
Aby's Indian Restaurant Swindon
Traditional dishes with a few new & exciting creations. Snooker star Jimmy White was spotted in there not so long back, so if his taste in curry is anything like his talent on the baize then Aby's is the one to go for.
Top dish: Lamb Achari - for those who like their curries medium hot with a spot of ginger. A house speciality.
The Curry Place
Curry Place Indian Tandoori Swindon
An authentic and traditional Indian restaurant in the truest sense, run by the constantly smiling and cheerful Mr Ali since 1994. Some people travel from Malmesbury every month to enjoy the food, and we'd definitely say it was worth the drive for the welcome alone.
Top dish: King Prawn Tikka Bhoona - a bit of a mouthful - literally! - but utterly delicious. 
West Swindon 
Bombay Lounge
Bombay Lounge Indian West Swindon
A little bit tucked away in Peatmoor but owner Hanif Robbani knows his restaurant is no secret in West Swindon, with cooking that's consistently spot-on.
Top dish: King Prawn Naadiyani - a house speciality and no wonder. Cooked superbly with special herbs, garlic, green chilli, potatoes and mushrooms.
Rafu's Indian Restaurant Swindon
Some call Rafu & Safu the 'Curry Kings' in Swindon, we just know them - including Rafu's son, Omar - for serving up some of the best Indian cuisine for over 30 years. Restaurants in Highworth & Shrivenham.
Top dish: Chicken Chat - Rafu's signature dish and still the best in Swindon.
Out of Town
The Burj
The Burj Indian Restaurant Swindon
A contemporary modern restaurant with a touch of class, complete with subdued lighting, soothing pastel colours and impressive works of art. The cooking ain't half bad either!
Top dish: Lamb Dhaansaak - a Persian classic made even better by their award-winning chef, Mahesh Rathudi
