Drink pairing tips

  • Chardonnay with your butter chicken

    If your food palns include Curry, then you should consider helping it along with some white wine. We find that a Chardonnay, with its hits of fruit, serves as the best pairing to the dish.

  • The ideal pairing for prawn curry

    When having prawn curry, experts suggest you pair it with a glass of saffron lassi, a popular cold drink.

  • The ideal drink pairing for green sauce palak paneer

    Finding the ideal drink pairing for green sauce palak paneer can be tricky. It’s worth exploring some white wine, particularly a glass of Chenin Blanc. This, dry, white wine balances the herbaceous green sauce palak paneer.

Fun facts

  • Wallet breaking curry

    Does $2,584 sound like a lot to you? Well that’s what the most expensive curry will cost you at Bombay Brasserie.

  • What Thailand drinks

    Should you find yourself on the streets of Thailand be sure to sample the local thai tea one of the country's most classic and popular drinks!

  • The original pad thai

    1930s was an interesting time, and it gave us the much cherished pad thai. We can thank Thailand for that!
