Pilgrim’s Korai restaurant is named after the Pilgrims Hatch area in Brentwood, where you’ll find the building. The family run business has been providing Essex locals and those who visit with delicious food and great service for over two decades, and keeps customers coming back with a menu that showcases a blend of Eastern flavours with a Western twist - here, the traditional is combined with creativity. The restaurant itself can seat up to 50 guests, so it's perfect to book out for corporate events, parties and big celebrations.

The restaurant's long and well thought out menu is packed with the most divine flavours, starting with delicious starters that include chicken chat puree, a dish of fish off the bone marinated in tikka sauce, tandoori prawn butterfly, onion bhajees, Mulligatawny soup, and alu ki tikki. As you venture into the main course section, you’ll find the tandoori chicken, shashlik, and lamb cutlets, showcasing the restaurant's commitment to perfecting traditional recipes.

Pilgrim's Korai doesn't stop there, it offers a selection of special dishes that really make the dining experience special. The amotik king prawns, bathed in a sweet and sour sauce, create a harmonious blend of flavours that we love. The Bengal fish bhuna, featuring boneless fresh white fish from the Bay of Bengal, is cooked with potatoes, green chilies, and fresh herbs, resulting in a mouthwatering taste, and the murgi masala is another standout dish, showcasing the chef's prowess in crafting a delicious dish. Completing the specials and tandoori options, Pilgrim's Korai offers classic curry dishes like madras, vindaloo, korma, bhuna, and dopiaza, ensuring there's something to satisfy every palate in this Indian restaurant in Essex.
