Go Go Curry
Posted by anonymous on 11/30/2012
Love their katsu curry! This is authentic japanese curry like the ones I had in japan - except it taste better and is right at the heart of NYC. Location requires a bit of a walk but is worth it. Avoid weekday lunchtime - you will never find a seat and the crispy katsu becomes soggy if you have it to-go

I eat here at least once a month, and the curry is always spectacular. The flavor is perfect, the curry-to-rice ratio is perfect, the meats are perfect, and I have yet to wait more than five minutes for my order. I have dreams about the katsu curry...

I got addicted to Japanese-style curry when visiting Japan and whenever I need a fix, I head right to Go Go. For those unfamiliary with Japanese curry, it is very different from Indian or Thai curries. It's a bit less spicy and a bit sweeter and deeper in flavor. Go Go does a fantastic version and is well worth seeking out. The Katsu curry is perfectly fried tonkatsu with a generous serving of curry on a bed of rice - a delicious and filling meal. Chicken and shrimp are available for those who don't like pork. For bigger appitites, go fo the Grand Slam, which basically has everything on the menu on a single dish. Larger portions can be ordered, but this means a larger portion of rice and curry, not extra meat or shrimp. Prices are very reasonable given the excellent food and the surprisingly fast service (especially when you consider that each meal is fried to order). Being that the restaurant is primarily a takeout joint, the ambiance is a bit lacking, but it's fun to eat there and take in all of the Hideki Mastsui memorabelia (the owner is a fan). Not a place where I would want to go for a date, but a fun spot for a quick meal.

Japanese curry isn't a familiar genre, but it should be. It's basically Japanese soul food. Dishes at Go Go include a protein (chicken, pork, etc.), a bed of rice, and a lot of thick, brown curry sauce. Probably not the healthiest meal, but filling, satisfying, and incredibly tasty. The portions are large and you can order different sizes. Options may be limited, but the food is really great, especially for the price.

38th Street between 7th and 8th Avenues has an amazing array of ethnic restaurants, included in which is the Japanese comfort-food import Go Go Curry. The selection isn't that varied (pork, chicken, shrimp, sausage or original) save for the toppings (cheese, rakkyo ..onion, egg, natto ..fermented soybean), or extra curry, rice, pork, chicken, sausage, shrimp) served over rice with a shredded vegetable (lettuce? cabbage?) on the side and slathered in curry. If you haven't had Japanese curry (I hadn't before this) it's nothing like Indian or West Indian curry. This is more like gravy. And it's darn tasty! The medium should sate most appetites. Sure, it costs a little more than other fast food joints, and more than the neighborhood Chinese joint, but it's an alternative well worth trying. I'll be back.

We were excited about ordering from this place, we had never heard of Japanese curry before and the prices were really good. Ordering was a breeze and with a giggle on the other end of the phone our go go was on it's way. When we opened the neatly packed containers, one shrimp curry, one katsu curry we were a little disappointed. The shrimp curry (double order) had a grand total of two shrimp. I'm sorry I just don't get it. Rice, fried chicken/shrimp smothered with heavy sauce? It isn't that good. Maybe if you are from Japan and used to eating this it tastes like home, to us it tasted like . . . well, average food. Next time we'll stick to Indian curry so it's a no no for the go go.
