Went here for an early evening meal one Saturday. There were only us and 1 other table in. Service was really quick and the food was good - it is very spicy though so be warned. I asked for a mild dish and still had to ask for extra yoghurt as it was so spicy - still tasted good though.... More

Have eaten there on 2 or 3 occasions with friends. Not only is the food excellent but very interesting and diverse - a great gastronomic experience. The staff who served us were always polite, friendly and helpful. To top it all the food is not too expensive either. Excellent value for money. Highly recommended.

Visited our son in Scarborough and again visited this restaurant for the fourth time. The owner and chef Dharma is in a class of her own and a lovely person. The three of us had the Thali again, two chicken and one lamb, and it was superb as usual. I mentioned that I was going to try the Khari lamb,... More

Visited again last night. The food once again was out of this world. The chef and owner is a genius with spices and flavours and the Thali is exceptional. Wine was great and not expensive and the service was very good. I only had Thali as my main course having tried and failed previously to have starters and desserts and... More

I rarely leave reviews on trip advisor which should be a good indication as to the quality of this restaurant. Looks can be deceiving and it easy to miss The Curry Leaf nestled away in the back streets of Scarborough. I am so glad I found it, what food!!! Without question the best Indian food I've ever eaten and I've... More

We go to Scarborough about once a year and have been to the Curry Leaf before. We felt that this visit was the best, the food was tastier than ever. We have the Thali which is constantly good. the service was great and the atmosphere, even though we were there early, was lovely. Don't be put off by the exterior... More

We got a take away from here and it was delicious. I hadnt had curry like it since being in srilanka and i have been dreaming about it since! The lady was really kind and friendly. She even gave us her own pots to take the food away in.

I'd never even heard of this place till I was invited to a party there. It's a gem of a place. The food was lovely. A delicious selection of various Indian dishes, all well flavoured and spiced to bring out the flavours. I'm veggie but found plenty to pick from. The rice was done to perfection to provide an excellent... More
