Wow! I wasn't expecting miracles having read trip advisor reviews but I can honestly say that this was one of the best chicken jalfrezis I've eaten. Superb food and service. Well done Curry Leaf.

This was without doubt the worst experience at the Curry Leaf East. The food was average at best, no flavour or body to the sauces. The waiters spend more time standing near the bar talking to each other, so the service can be slow and...More

Good service, I ordered a Chicken Tikka Bhuna, rice and man. All were full of flavour and I would visit again. One of the nicest curries I have had in London. Reasonable pricing.

The staff were very welcoming and friendly. The food arrived very quickly, a little too spicy compared to what we are used to, but quite nice. The waiters cleared away plates before we were all finished, which I found a little bit rude - it...More
