From Sourbugger's Newcastle upon Tyne page :
Rupali is a most definitely a Newcastle institution. The location on Bigg market makes it very central, and the food is spicy, cheap and cheerful.
This in itself would make it worth visiting, but the self-promotion of this curry emporium is a wonder to behold. Even Richard Branson (the master of that dark art of promotion)would be impressed.
The 'Lord' who owns it (he bought the title) has put together a dish that he call 'curry hell'. It claims to be the hottest in the world. If you eat it - it's free, and if you can't, it's still only seven quid.
The place is also frequently mentioned ' Viz' the Newcastle adult comic , that now has followers all over the would who delight in seeing the Fat slags, Sid the Sexist, Roger Mellie and Buster and his unfeasibly large testicles every month.
The restaurant also organised the 'longest takeaway' in the world - as explained below with in an interview with 'the Lord' (And check out his witty tee-shirts as well)
Abdul Latif :
I make the world's hottest curry. We call it 'Curry Hell'. It's very very hot and I demand* it is the world's hottest curry. If you can eat it, it is free and if you don't, then you pay for it. I tried it once... but no, thank you.
We are holding the world record for the longest takeaway in the world - about 11,000 miles around the world, from Newcastle to Australia. She decided to e-mail for a takeaway, so I received an e-mail from her. She requested for me to send a few dishes to Sydney. We made the vegetable curry, vegetable pilau rice and a nan bread and a papadom and a pickle for her. We started in Newcastle on Friday morning. And then they took a plane to Heathrow, and from Heathrow to Australia. So, she received it Monday morning. It takes about 4 days. It arrived in good condition, yes, but sadly, both meals were very, very cold. So she warmed it up and she enjoyed the meal. Yes.
Favorite Dish: Look out for the specials -like the excellent Viz menu
