Wren Kitchens surveyed 2,000 people to find out Britain’s favourites from the curry house. While there has been a rise in improvisation with flavours and dishes the pubcli have stayed true to the classics.

To accompany the curry, Brits voted pilau as the best rice dish (44 per cent), while garlic naan was favourite at 35 per cent.
