We visited here twice during our stay, food was delicious, service was fantastic. Would recommend the Chicken Shaslik sizzling platter, was very tasty and well cooked. Would definitely return when I’m back in July!

Not nice food, average service. Wouldn’t go again. The menu was limited. Lack of meat in the meal. Would not go again.

Myself and three friends had dinner at the Curry Leaf and enjoyed our food. Service was alright, although I noticed a few aspects of the staffs' general attitude that seemed a bit off, but this could mostly be overlooked. Food was tasty with plenty of...More
