Episode 4 - King Size Curry House

Curry loving Brits hit this king of curry houses hard on the busiest night of the year, serving over 750 guests spicy Indian food made on a huge scale in its colossal custom kitchens! The Royal Nawaab in Manchester, UK is one of the biggest curry houses in Britain. Cooking up 720,000 curries every year, this is spicy cuisine on a grand scale!

In 2002, owner Mahboob Hussain converted an art deco cinema into two banquet halls and a massive 45ft long buffet. Today, this curry castle is the pride of Manchester.  In a town where people spend on average $48,000 in their lifetime on curry, the team at the Nawaab must never slip up to maintain its’ reputation as the king of spice.

Today is their busiest day of the year. Two huge events are booked in the banquet halls and the buffet is maxed out all day and all night. The Nawaab’s supersize kitchens must run like a well oiled machine. With 10 ovens, a toaster that turns out 400 nan breads an hour and a grill that can cook up to 2000 kebabs a day, hopefully the team will be able to keep up.

After the first banquet and buffet, the situation is not looking good. Food stocks are running low and Mahboob makes a last minute dash across town for more supplies.

Back at the restaurant, the 420 seat buffet restaurant is maxed and the foyer is rapidly filling up. Floor manager Mo clings to his reservations pager system to prevent total chaos as over 300 people are waiting for a table!

Will the team at the Nawaab be able to get things under control or is a meltdown on its way …
