This is a small restaurant that you probably would just pass by while driving on US41...but don't let that fool you. Park in the rear and walk in, take a seat and try to decide if you want an American or Indonesian meal. If you don't pick Indonesian, IMHO you're making a big mistake, not that the American food isn't... More

It's been a while since last heading to this favorite restaurant, in Nokomis. As always, diners are greeted by the husband/wife team of chefs, David and Rofie. David, who grew up nearby, developed his skills in solid European/American cooking and sauces while Rofi hails from Indonesia and is enthusiastic about her love of the cuisine and the distinctive spices and...

Went there with two friends for dinner. We were the only customers in the place from 5:45-6:45 pm. The reviews said we should go....wrong. It is exactly what the reviews say it is ...MEATLOAF.... period......barbequed meatloaf, no less. Large portions if that's what you want, but we were so disappointed we didn't even take a doggie bag for the uneaten... More

Had their seafood curry and it was excellent. I had it spicy and my wife had it mild. I had shrimp and she had grouper cheeks. Would definitely recommend.

We also have drivin by here sooo many times and never stopped. Tonight I said I want to try someplace new. Looked at the reviews and said, let's try this. We are very glad we did. It was some of the tastiest food we've had since we moved to Englewood 4.5 yrs ago. Everything has such great flavor, not boring... More

I have been driving by Curry Creek Cafe for years and have heard that the food is great but it's near one of my other favorites and I just never got around to trying it. Suffice it to say that everything that friends and reviewers have said about this place is correct. Food is great, owners are attentive, decor is... More

After hearing bout this hidden Gem from several locals and with visitors in town who lived in Southeast Asia, we had to go. You have to try the authentic Indonesian dishes they are some of the best food I have had since moving to the area. The owners are wonderful and make you feel right at home. The chicken sate,...

The food was excellent, tasty and a great presentation. Dave goes out of his way to please. We took friends there for their first time. They'll be returning. From now on every time I am in Florida.

Well, I HAVE been to Indonesia, love spicy food and I thought this food was bang on. OF COURSE it's not exactly the kind of Asian fair you you'd get in the jungles of northern Thailand as some ostensibly well-traveled reviewers have put it. But Hello! We're in Florida and yes you do need to cater to your market if... More

It's run by a husband and wife team. He is a master chef who can turn ingredients into delicious master pieces. As an added treat he mixes in some Asian fusion with flavorful renditions of fresh fish, chicken and assorted meats and veggies. Get there early they close do not stay open late, and always call first.
