Popular eatery from Bradford, The Curry Counter by Pakeezah Gourmet, is set to open its doors on Wednesday in Batley on Alfred’s Way. The Batley opening will become the family-owned businesses third branch, offering a variety of freshly made curries, along with a range of heat and eat curries to take home, either for the family or even to host a party of up to 30 people.
The Curry Counter is a concept established by the owners of the award-winning West Yorkshire Pakeezah supermarket, a brand which has been running since 1967 and has also served famous A-List Bollywood star Amitabh Bachchan with their tantalising curries.
Tariq Haq, owner and founder of The Curry Counter, has been working tirelessly to prepare for the grand opening. He is extremely excited to be bringing The Curry Counter to Batley, which he believes is a thriving and vibrant town with a warm and friendly community.
“I believe we offer something truly unique to the community, and I can’t wait for customers to experience it for themselves.” Said Mr Haq
Along with creating jobs in Batley, Mr Haq believes he will also be able to add to the incredible regeneration that’s been taking place since the Batley Plaza opened a few years ago.
“I was looking for somewhere to launch my third branch and have been impressed by the incredible Batley Plaza project and how while other towns have seen a decline in their city centre offering, Batley has turned things around by creating a thriving retail and food offering. So, it made sense to invest in Batley and be part of the dynamic business community here, helping to create jobs and contribute to the local economy”.
The grand opening of the Batley branch is expected to be attended by the Mayor of Kirklees, the leader of Kirklees Council and community and business leaders from the local area. Guests will get a taste of the delicious food on offer and be able to learn more about the eatery’s Donga and Degh offering, which are basically chilled packs of curries, for those who are in a hurry, to simply heat and eat.
A Donga, also known as a party pack, is around 2.5 kilos of curry, which customers can pick up straight from the fridge, and take home to heat and eat, which will serve 8 – 9 people.
The Degh pack weighs around 6.5 kilos and again is a chilled curry pack which can serve around 25 – 30 people. You can buy a range of curries, from chicken to meat dishes as well as a range of vegan and vegetarian dishes.
Customers can also eat in and enjoy food that is prepared on site, locally sourced, with recipes that go back more than five decades.
There will be plenty of opening offers, along with a special offer to celebrate the King’s Coronation so it’s well worth a visit.
The Curry Counter will be open 7 days a week from 11am – 10pm Mon – Thurs, 11am – 11pm Fri – Sat and 12 – 10pm on Sundays.
