Totally biased product review by me — The Bristol Yard

“A painfully hot, hallucination inducing, mind altering curry.”

Those words alone are enough to entice any self-respecting Brit — “Yeah mate, yeah … give us the ‘ottest ruby ya got!” — to wander along to The Bristol Yard for dinner.

That doesn’t grab you? How does half of a Tandoori-roasted chicken, garlic mash, Indian-spiced Yorkshire Pudding, roasted mini red potatoes, sautéed carrots, broccoli and gravy sound? Right?

For now, an interim Brits in Toronto 4/5 stars.
