- ‘Chicken curry, mutton dopiaza and shahi qorma are used by restaurateurs specialising in Indian food, with glorious abandon, so that one man's curry tastes suspiciously like another's dopiaza.’
- ‘Traditional classics such as tandoori, balti, korma, pathia, dopiaza, madras and bhuna curries were there, along with a decent choice of chef's specials, and, I was pleased to see, no puddings.’
