Why so many Indian Restaurants in Poland? Which one is the best?

Yes I confused "The Hives" with "The Strokes" in one post, but I didn't try to convince anyone I was right, and I readily admitted my mistake after I realized it, unlike this forum's obnxious Harry in this instance. Will he admit that Tamilnadu is in India, and that Tamil is an Indian language? Here is a map with the Tamil homeland in red:

The reason is its being run by pakis or nepalis or bangladeshis who find it convenient to open a shop in the name of indian and cheat us.

You have been cheated, but not by these restauranteurs. You have been cheated by the British educational system, or more likely yourself by not paying attention when attending its courses, because if you had listened then you would understand that Pakistan and Bangladesh were both part of India until 1948 when the exiting British colonials partitioned them off of either side of India. Do you really believe that their cuisine was somehow partitioned too and made non-Indian? If you do then you are foolish.

Actually they were quite determined to do that themselves. Not that Bangladesh existed as an entity until many years later.

Evidently not as foolish as you. Sub-continental cuisine is very regionalised - the food in most Indian restaurants is closest to Pakistani cuisine with a few Bangla and Kashmiri dishes. In Europe there are relatively few south Indian restaurants.

Sound right, I've heard several times that what is now called Indian food in restaurants were trial and error creations from the first immigrants to Yorkshire. Balti, Kormas, Vindaloo were adaptations for English tastes. A real Vindaloo, for example, should be made with plenty of Portuguese Vin when I see it in restaurants in London the meaning is more related to how hot/spicy the curry your meat will be.

Here is a good example of one in London, Diwana Bhel Poori House, Drummond Street close by Euston railway station. Food is excellent, this place is what I really miss about the UK living in PL.

Yes Tamils have their own language, and it is spoken outside of India,

There you go then...open and shut case mi lord!

this place is what I really miss about the UK living in PL.

Not as good as these two Im sure:

fortsofindiarestaurant.co.uk

(they mention Indian food rather a lot, but they're Bengladeshi owned!)

OK, but only OK. And a bit flashy without the substance. Plus the cooking spices stink up that whole section of the Royal Route when there isn't a wind blowing. I like to sit outside a bar across the road and about 100 metres away and you can sometimes smell the cooking from there.

The best is probably Arti on al. Jerozolimskie near pl. Zawiszy. Small portions, but good food.

There are so many Indian restaurants mushrooming here

Yes, but they are outnumbered by Vietnamese or Chinese ones.

Is there a reason??

Coz immigrants from those countries think it is a good way to make a living in Poland? Unfortunately, it is good in normal, not pandemic times.
