Good, not great

The food was very tasty. And the restaurant is sure popular. It's like a hippie joint. And, if you are a straight guy who likes waitresses in Daisy Dukes, this is the place for you to go. But, they need more variety in their menu and they need to update their menu - the one they gave us was... read more

Delicious down-to-earth Curry restaurant, with many different curries to choose from. And great prices too.

We ate here because we bought a Living Social coupon, and we weren't disappointed. The restaurant is very casual and in a beach community. We had samosas, curried chicken puffs, chicken tikka masala, and spinach curry. Everything was so fresh and flavorful. We'll be back.

While it doesn't look like much from the street on Garnet Avenue in Pacific Beach, World Curry is a very reasonably priced restaurant serving delicious curry. I never knew how many different curries there are. The food tasted fresh and delicious. The hummus was delicious although the serving was modest. The naan bread was huge and very good. The service...

We went here based on the good reviews and the fact that some guy travelled 100 miles to get here! It didn't disappoint. Great atmosphere, super friendly staff and delicious food. Had the tikka masala as a safe option and it was like homemade. Great. Yum!

My wife and I love curry, almost all kinds. World Curry gives us the variety, quality, just the right funky atmosphere, coupled with reasonable prices and you have a winner. A bonus: there are two nice Goodwill Stores right across the street and they stay open until eight. So, we get to shop a little and go out to diner,... More

I do nearly 100 miles to eat here. The food and service is great. This is the only restaurant that I can say I've had everything on the menu and not one dish failed to satisfy my expectations. Prices are more than reasonable. Curry is one of my favorite dishes and at World Curry takes you to every place and... More

I am a picky restaurant goer, and there is nothing bad about this place. The food is amazing, the service is excellent, the prices are fair. I travel an hour each way if traffic is good and never regret it. Congratulations to this owner and their staff!

I visit San Diego 1-2 times a year. Every visits 'requires' a stop at World Curry. The portions are good. The prices are great. Service is great. If you like curry-type foods and like dishes modified to your spiciness level, definitely visit World Curry.

Eating leftover green curry with chicken for lunch right now. Yum! We've been eating at WC for years and I can't recall a bad meal. Service is always friendly if not super prompt. We especially love the tikka masala, green, and panang curries and have tried most of the others with good results. We like medium spicy (I'd do more,... More
