I regularly order take out from here. Great standby, never a problem. Very happy to have a go-to place for Indian take out. If I get there early, they sit me down and give me water, bread and condiments. More than I could ever expect when getting take out.

We were a table of 7 and the service initially was slow. After our entrees were served we were completely ignored. No one returned to clean the table or take dessert orders. The place was busy but we were sitting in a small restaurant for nearly 40 minutes unable to get the attention of any staff.. When we finally were able to flag down a waiter it was to ask for the check. Amazingly the check appeared instantaneously. It seemed to us they didn't want to bother serving us dessert. The food was not great. I tasted the chicken tikka masala, the lamb with spinach and the lamb biryani (came with no sauce?) and all the meats were very chewy as dry as dust. Needless to say, we'll not make a return visit.

I love the christmas light decorations. I know some people think it's a bit much, but to each his own. I eat at Curry Leaf pretty frequently, and often bring people from out of town to try Indian here for their first time. I have enjoyed the mater paneer, aloo gobi, alloo dum (that was a tasty surprise!) and the jalfarezie. The samosas are always good, too, and the rasmalai is great when they have it. I have both eaten in and ordered take out from here. My only complaint about the take out is that sometimes the wait is very long (over an hour). The person who answers the phone is always really friendly, though, so that plus the great food always make up for the long wait.

The review-lined windows speak for themselves... I have eaten at a number of Indian restaurants in the area and can easily conclude that Curry Leaf is the absolute best. It may be a bit pricy compared to some of other local curry restaurants, however, the few extra bucks is well worth it. The Chicken Tikka Masala is to die for. The quality of the service and food is consistent an unmatched.

Having been fans since the beginning, we were pretty disappointed last night. Food was alright, especially a nicely flavored biryani. Pikoras were tired looking & tasting. Service was unnecessarily agressive; we were there to enjoy ourselves, and didn't like being "sold up" on our choices. Using the restroom at the end of the meal proved to be an unpleasant finish to our evening. Really digusting: One restroom for the whole restaurant, littered with paper towels, and toilet barely working.

Having eaten in curry houses across the country, I'm comfortable posting a review. The service was great. We arrived around 7:30 on a Saturday evening and were seated immediately. The wait staff was curteous and frequently checked on us. The decor is kind of gaudy with the string lights, but somehow quaint. But the food is the reason we came. The puri was the biggest I have ever seen and well made. The Chicken Makhani was flavorful, but had too much tomato base and didn't seem to be balanced with enough cream. It was spiced nicely but seemed to be lacking in intensity. The Chicken Shahi Korma also seemed to be somewhat more bland that others I have had. The chicken itself was large and all white meat. The okra do-piaza was excellent. Spiced perfectly and done correctly. One of the stars was the iced tea. Served with a hint of spice, it was delicious. Overall, although I'd eat there again, I'd try other places first.

I must admit that the service was very friendly and courteous. But the food was just ok. It wasn't the cleanest restaurant that I've been in either. I think the thing that really set me off from the very beginning was the salad. When you first arrive the waiter brings a small salad. Basically, it was wilted lettuce w/ sliced cucumber and 2 wrinkly slices of carrot. They literally sliced everything up, threw it in the fridge and let it sit there until they needed it. It was gross. Overall I think the presentation just got us off to a bad start. The food was ALRIGHT but I have definitely had better.
