This is a one of a kind restaurant. My favourite is the beef rending, wonderfully flavored with Indonesian spices.

David and Rofi bring a special homey touch to this tiny restaurant which has a surprisingly broad range of cuisine.

My wife an I stopped at the Curry Creek Cafe for lunch while visiting my Sister in Nokomas. It was late and they were about to close, but the owners welcomed us in anyhow. I ordered the Seafood Curry with Lemon Grass, Kiefer Lime & Coconut Milk with Shrimp and my wife ordered the Indonesian Sample Plate. Both were really... More

It was the Indonesian dishes on the menu that made me go here and I'm so happy I did. Chicken sateh and seafood curry are excellent. Place is nice, no asian style decoration as I would have expected, but nice all along. Reasonably priced for great food.

Wow - small but delicious! The oysters were fantastic as were 3 of our Indonesian choices - I opted for a burger - one of the best I had! The cucumber salad is awesome! Priced reasonably - great ingredients were high quality!! Loved it!

Extensive menu with some exceptional Thia food. Burgers are excellent and so is the meatloaf sandwich.

Curry Creek Cafe has evolved and changed its menu this year if I recall correctly. The menu is so varied - it's gone global. You start with a freshly baked, warm and luscious cheese topped roll with an olive butter. There are the signature Indonesian dishes, which include the best (but small portions) curry/coconut entrees of all levels of 'hotness'.... More

The food is excellent but the café is very dirty. Everything, blinds, wall, ceiling is dirty. I hate to see what the kitchen looks like.

I set out looking for an Indian restaurant and Google sent me to Curry Creek Cafe. What a nice surprise!! Google staff take note. Just because the name curry is in the title does not mean it is an Indian Restaurant! Having lived in Asia I am always looking for a yummy yet casual place to eat as I travel.... More

This is the place to go for Indonesian food. We went there for lunch, although the place looks run down from the outside and the open sign was not on. Despite first appearances we trusted the positive reviews and went in to find a small basic but very clean and nice dinning room with a partial view into the kitchen.... More

Interesting choices from the norm. Curry if you like it with an Eastern Asian influence. We enjoyed the menus and the chef is eGer to please with just the right spice level for your taste.
