Indian buffet restaurant to open in former Lincoln pancake house

The site has housed another Indian restaurant in previous years

An Indian restaurant and takeaway will open on Lincoln High Street in place of a pancake house, which closed after just a year.

118 High Street now has fresh signage of Blest Curry. It is not yet known exactly when it will open, but it will be looking forward to customers Korma-n on in or dhal-ing up for a takeaway.

The sign on the front tells perspective customers that it will offer “modern Indian cooking”, a buffet, restaurant, cafe and takeaway.

As previously reported, Crivo’s Pancake House opened on the site of former Indian restaurant the Royal Tandoori, on August 29, 2018. However, by September 2019 the business’ Facebook page vanished and a ‘Closed’ sign remained on the door after the usual opening time.

It will not be the first time an Indian restaurant has been at this location. The Royal Tandoori, which had mixed online reviews, was inspected by City of Lincoln Council officers in November 2017 and received a food hygiene rating of ‘one’ due to major improvements required.

The Royal Tandoori closed down soon after with Crivo’s taking its place.
