Sorry, but I don't understand the hype!

I have been twice to the curry leaf as my friend raves about it. Both times I have not been impressed. Although the atmosphere is welcoming and the staff were fantastic, the food for me did not live up to expectations. The first time I had aubergine curry, but I don't think the aubergine can have... read more

My wife and I come to Scarborough for occasional weekend breaks which often include a visit to the Steven Joseph Theatre. We recently stumbled upon this little hidden gem of a restaurant. We have eaten there twice and now include it as a "must do" part of our Scarborough experience! Can't say any more.

Recommended by a friend and what a recommendation. The menu is a little different without the run of the mill food that other Indian restaurants have. We both went for a Thali and weren`t disappointed. The authentic food is superb and we were even shown how to eat it properly too. Only a small place so booking is advised, especially... More

We visited with friends on a trip from London. The food was delicious, based on fresh ingredients and with superbly balanced spices. Excellent food and value and we will come again.

Over the years we have been lucky enough to have eaten curry all over the world. Usually they dont inspire one to shout about them. This one did. Fresh, tasty and well cooked. A reasonable choice and nice people. It was a freezing night and they just about managed to keep the place warm enough. True serendipity, quite unexpected. Good... More

Stayed in Scarborough and visited based on reviews. Hands down best indian food in a long time. This is made from scratch food, with a home made twist. Well worth a visit. Could do with a clean though hence 4 not 5 stars.

My pet hate for Indian restaurants is that they squeeze so many people in! They don't do that here! Visited in a large group and apart from us it was empty on a Monday night. Food, choice and service all good, also vey good value. Would go again!!

We chose the curry leaf based on tripadvisor reviews and the fact it was a short walk from our hotel. The quality of the food and the service could not be faulted, we were a little surprised as the menu is a very different to what you will usually see in the UK so we ordered Thali which I have...
