13.09.2017 20:30 to 23:30
*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Basel
Event Type: Dinner
Meeting Point: Johann by JAY, St. Johanns-Ring 34

Let's ressurect the original Basel Curry Night!!! A night of fun, laughs, new introductions and friendships have been the staple of these events in the past. We don't seem to have anything like this in Basel anymore, so let's get the ball rolling again! I hope you can all join. I have booked the best (in my opinion) Indian restaurant in Basel and I can certainly vouch that we always have a great night with Jay and his staff.


SIgn up quickly as places are limited. Orders are paid for individually and all balances must be paid before leaving the venue.

Due to lack of interest, this event is now cancelled.


Best regards,

Re: Basel Curry Night is back!!!

Thanks for taking the initiative Mimi and resurrecting this once hallowed Basel institution. It was how I was first welcomed to Basel 10 years ago and realised that there was much more to this place than just Roche and Novartis.

Anyway sorry I missed this event and couldn't at least give feedback. It just so happens that I will be at a two-day offsite event in Eastern Switzerland (feel the glamour) otherwise I definitely would have come.

Re: Basel Curry Night is back!!!

I appreciate the effort as well! But I never saw the original post and I hate curry, so..... it would have been lost on me anyway.

I didn't see the original post either and I would have been tempted to take a train to the dark side. Will watch out for the next one!

Re: Basel Curry Night is back!!!

I'm not from Basel (and it's the first time I saw this also, maybe I just never popped up as new post).
Why don't you folks just RSVP it, maybe mimi1981 goes through with it after all? I mean, it was scheduled for tomorrow ....

Re: Basel Curry Night is back!!!

I'll be setting up a new one for the second Wednesday of October (11th) as per the old Curry night tradition. Details will follow and I am pleased to see that this one was simply overlooked because I was a muppet and closed the thread and didn't re-bump it.


It would be great to see old faces and new faces alike. I promise not to drag anyone to Karaoke after (unless demand exceeds my embarrassment)

Sounds good, will try to join if possible. But please not Jays. I'm a bit out of touch with Basel Indian restaurants but can you not find one that does proper curry?

In Basel?!? No. You've been here long enough to know that it is all about compromise. Apparently this place is not bad: www.restaurantbayleaf.ch

Relatively new.

That said, while Jay does great food, I don't class it as a "British" curry in the "traditional" sense of "curry, naan and a pint"... more gourmet...

Indeed. And I think we've been spoilt by our local Indian restaurant in Engelberg.

I think I have been to pretty much all of them The reason I chose Jay's is because he knows the curry nights of yore well and would certainly put on a good spread. I'll happily take recommendations/suggestions.
