Great happy hour beers too!

Had the chicken tikka masala which was excellent, and lots of food when ordering the large plate for $11. Also ordered the massaman which was very tasty too. Draft local beers on tap until 6 p.m. for $3 made this a really inexpensive, filling, and very tasty evening. Our waitress was cool and... read more

We were looking for something different from bar food, pizza and seafood that is on every corner in California beach towns so we went to World Curry. I was very disappointed they were out of Samosas so we settled for curry puffs. They were okay but a little greasy. The naan and garlic naan were fantastic. My son got the... More

We are big fans of Indian and Thai foods, so this sounded good. It was not just good, it was wonderful. Our favorites were the Green Basil, Keema, and Panang curries. A small salad with a very good dressing comes with the meal. We also had the Veggie Pakora as a side dish. It came with some excellent dipping sauces.... More

I have been to Curry World on several occasions while in San Diego and it has always delivered delicious, fresh and perfectly spiced Curries. I always get confused ordering Indian Curries so whomever I am with I always yield to their taste buds and favorite dishes- I love it all. The restaurant has friendly service, very reasonable prices and casual... More

There is something for everyone at this laid back establishment. We sat by the open door that made it seem like we were in a colorful garage. Nice fresh air and view of the passersby. The food was made to order (spice level, mix of vegetables, type of protein) and delicious. The waitress was friendly, efficient and very knowledgeable. My... More

I have been coming back again and again to this place - my favorite curry place. I have worked my way through the menu (except the really spice stuff) and everything has been good - I've had my favorites. The naan is good (both plain or garlicy) and I enjoy the compliementary salad. Staff is attentive - my water or... More

We had some delicious curry at World Curry in Pacific Beach. The Chicken Tikka Masala ,Shrimp Panang and Garlic Naan were excellent, along with our service from our waitress. Although I didn't mention it, their pricing was inaccurate. As soon as you enter, they have a billboard menu posted. The pricing was different from both the menu price and the... More

When we moved to San Diego I thought its all about mexican cuisine.. And then we discovered World Curry. O.M.G. My taste buds are dancing only thinking of their creamy curries and light as a cloud naan bread. Staff is very sweet, especially the dark hair waitress with glasses and tattoos, sorry, never asked her name, but shes just so... More
