We had Minesh over to teach us a few dishes for a surprise birthday party. What a phenomenal night and a great... experience. Educational, exceptionally tasty and above all fun. Highly recommended!!!!read more
A private cooking class by passionate professional chef that redefined our understanding of Indian food. Unmissable.... From the start, Minesh communicated promptly and was extra accommodating; nothing was too much trouble.Upon arrival, chilled drinks and an appetizer awaited each of us – perfect as we were peckish already. The kitchen itself is of a professional standard, and immaculately maintained.On to the cooking, Minesh explained, demonstrated and coached us through the steps that produce the magic of Indian food. And I really do mean magic, the food we prepared was nothing short of exceptional. In fact, I still think about it months later when I'm hungry. I work in the food industry myself, and I can say that Minesh's level of passion for his native cuisine is nothing short of remarkable. You can tell he's thought about each element of his class, going above and beyond to create a well-rounded introductory experience.Not only will you learn to make the dish(es), but Minesh explains how Indian cooks build layers of flavor that make the individual spices come alive (yes, it's more complicated than shoving everything in a pot!)I would 100% recommend. Perfect for couples or small groups, all skill levels and spice tolerances.read more
Thank you Minesh! What a fantastic night we all had, the food was delicious and so nice that we were all able to share... in the experience of cooking an authentic Indian meal! We all learnt so much from you including all about the different regions of India and the different types of food that comes from each region from meat eaters to vegetarians! We also learnt about smell and taste and the importance of using fresh herbs and spices! The taste experience of adding just a touch of salt, extra chilli powder or cashew nuts made such a difference to our ‘taste buds’ and to the dish we were cooking! We will certainly all be putting into practice our new cooking skills very soon!read more
Absolutely fantastic evening! Many many thanks to the fabulous Minesh. Very professional and extremely personable, we... all felt included in the cooking experience, learnt quite a bit and had a thoroughly enjoyable evening. Rewarded by the delicious food. Thoroughly recommend!read more

Absolutely delicious!!! Cooked the fish curry last night, fresh, fragrant and absolutely delicious. Can't wait until... the next box arrives, and we can have our monthly curry night. Cheaper than takeaway, better for you, and you learn a new recipe each time. Fantastic!read more
Just cooked and ate Baingan Bharta with the parsnip thoran and pea pulao rice. Was fantastic. Easy to read instructions... and very high quality ingredients.

If Indian cuisine is something you enjoy then this is an absolute must.A real education on how to make the most... delicious meals,often very simple with easy to follow instructions..Personally I was amazed how amazingly tasty some of the vegetarian dishes were with so few ingredients..Give it a try you’ll love it.Many thanks Mineshread more
Look no further if you want to learn more about Indian cookery. Minesh is a friendly, extremely knowledgeable host, who gently walks you through the lesson with no pressure. You'll have a great time and get to eat a delicious meal… More at the end. What's not to like?
I ordered our vouchers for my dad's birthday in 2019.
Minesh was very happy to welcome us in, 2 years later!
In a relaxed environment, we learnt a lot about processes of enhancing flavour.
The main dish was vegetarian, at our request… More and the accompanying dishes all went together so well. Who knew rice could be a stand alone dish!
Informative, relaxing and very much, value for money.
I had a brilliant afternoon at the Kari Club today. The food we cooked was delicious, but more importantly I really learned something and feel much more excited and confident about cooking more Indian food at home. Double win! Minesh was… More a great teacher and gracious host. I highly recommend!
Out of the ordinary food, poles apart from the usual takeaway fayre, really something else.
Pleasingly short individual menu of ready meals, with original blends of spices, perfected by Minesh the owner/chef,who also runs the cookery courses… More held there.
We had Tadka Dhall, Keralan Pork, Kolhapuri Chicken, and Aged Basmati Cumin Rice, all exceptional.
Great shop too, well stocked and presented, plenty of advice a real pleasure.
My husband treated us to a Kariclub cookery class to celebrate my birthday. We attended on a Sunday afternoon and shared the session, run by Minesh, with one other couple.
On arrival we were presented with a delicious appetiser and mango… More lassi, and Minesh explained how the class would work.
Over the course of the next 3 hours we were immersed in the authentic Indian cookery club; indulging our senses in the wonderful spices and flavours to collaboratively create a delicious feast, which we all sat and enjoyed together at the end of the session.
What a treat. I thoroughly recommend The Kari Club and any of Minesh's ready meals or monthly recipe boxes, to anyone who appreciates delicious home cooking.
We hope to be back soon!
Oh my goodness. We have been meaning to pop into here for some time, especially as we watched them transform the place to keep up with the Covid19 rules. We went in for a chai tea and came out with dinner. We tried 2 different curries and… More the chutney and couldn't fault them at all. In fact, the pork curry was exceptional! What a lovely way to have a treat dinner without having to get take away or go out (which we can't do at the moment anyway!) We will definitely be back for more!
We have been having the monthly curry box for two and the standard of the recipes and quality of food has been OUTSTANDING. I cook a lot of curries myself and it’s so nice to try some new recipes that just work. The flavours are amazing… More every time. Really impressed with the quality of ingredients and instructions in the boxes too - always absolutely spot on and easy to recreate.
Thank you so much for a fabulous afternoon. Christian and I really loved it.It was an inspiring and informative session spent with a very knowledgable chef - we learned loads and loved hearing about your mum.
Thank you again.
Fantastic meal on Friday (11th Sep). Delicious flavours and so much nicer than the usual delivery curry. Even though it needed heating, this was very easy and easier than timing the arrival of a heated delivery.
Excellent value; would thoroughly… More recommend.
What a brilliant way to spend a wet afternoon in Brighton. Having had a subscription for the monthly recipe kits I decided I would book onto one of the courses. The course had the perfect number of people (5) so it meant there was the… More ideal balance of hands on and demonstration. Minesh made us all feel very welcome and is passionate about his food heritage, it was great to hear the stories about his Mum and the dishes she prepared. We learnt lots of useful techniques and were rewarded with a fantastic meal that we had prepared to feast on. Brilliant afternoon, there was also a bonus of a small retail area to buy spices and utensils.
Can’t recommend this enough - whether you’re a first time cook or wanting to pick up some new skills, you’ll have an amazing time and add some fantastic dishes to your repertoire! Minesh is a very thorough instructor and explains… More things perfectly. A brilliant way to spend an afternoon/evening!
I came for the cookery course and had a fantastic time. Manesh is a great teacher, taking us through the recipes and the different cooking traditions of India. He was also very helpful with ideas for substitutions for food allergies. Highly… More recommended.
My husband and I took part in the cookery course and would highly recommend it. The food was amazing, Minesh was a great teacher and we thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon. The experience was a birthday present, and we would not hesitate to… More recommend it as a present to friends and family particularly those hard to buy for. We will also be buying the boxes to carry on the experience at home.
Amazing Indian cookery class! I booked this for my wife and I as we both enjoy eating and making Indian food. We learnt so much about favours and spice and had great fun making and eating all the dishes. It was a really enjoyable afternoon… More and Minesh was a great host. We are going to sign up to the recipe box service so we can try more dishes. Highly recommended!
Had a great time with my partner last weekend. In total there was six of us and Minesh. We cooked two main dishes, the first being a chicken based dish and the second being an aubergine dish. We also a salad side dish and some crepes. All… More were delicious when we dug in at the end 🙂 You are made very welcome with a little starter and a drink. The steps are clearly explained and you are walked through everything. This is more of a group exercise than individually creating your own dishes. I thought the price of the lesson was very reasonable considering you are in there for four hours! I had a great time and really recommend it to anyone with any level of cooking.
