Funny Indian Restaurant Menu Typos

Would you eat at a restaurant offering "1 Bowel  of Sambar" or an "Anguish Burger"? The British left us the English language and its been murdered by many but probably the restaurant industry has really killed it over and over again. I am not sure why this happens but its very common to find typos in the menus of Indian restaurants all over the world and some of its makes for very funny reading. In this article we present some funny ones that we have come across like

  1. The Bombay Anguish Burger
  2. A Bowel of Sambar
  3. Lamb, Chicken and Seafood Entries and possibly the most famous of them all
  4. Sandwhich or Sandwitch 

 Whats the funniest you have come across? Please share it with us or leave it in the comments section.

Worlds Largest Indian Restaurant

Whats the largest Indian restaurant you have been to? 100 seats, 200 seats...maybe 300. Well, the largest Indian restaurant seats over 800. Aakash Restaurant in Cleckheaton, West Yorkshire seats about 860 guets at a time and is housed in a 19th century chapel. Apparently, the chapel was rundown and in derelict state until one of the original restaurant owners decide to take it over and renovate in 2001.

Today the restaurant offers a 5 course Indian buffet prepared by 5 Star Chefs. They have over 30 dishes in the buffet. The buffet costs 9.95  on Sunday, Tuesday and Wednesday and 13.95 on Thu, Fri and Saturday. They have a good Ala-carte menu with items like Coconut Mint grilled Pomfret, Fish Tikka, Lamb chops, a host of Biryani's and a good selection of vegetarian dishes as well.

They have various events during the year covering popular events such as Valentine's day, New Years, Christmas etc and have special evenings such as Bollywood night.
