Consistenly Great

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

World Curry is wonderful, and an excellent value, as long as you stay with the great curries. Appetizers are lackluster, and usually overcooked and dry. Parking is also always a problem...but worth the trouble.

Very nice place to get a good curry meal! They have a huge selection and you can choose whether you want ot with chicken, beef or vegetarian. Food quality is very good and the curry dishes are authentic.

The food here was terrible. My husband and I ate here and it was so bad that we couldn't eat more than a few bites. Stay away.

I know its not an indian restaurant but mixture of all asian foods. Been to so many Indian restaurants...Chicago and New York have some,,,and you can get real taste there as well. But this place..was excellent in food, not same type of taste or creamy sauce. I requested to make my food very spicy not mild. Gosh~~ it tasted so... More

Great food. Seating is limited but quaint. Order up on the spiciness. Extra hot is just so-so hot. Love the garlic naan. The service is standard PB fare...a handful of girls in a hurry to get off work and hit the bong. Nice selection of asian beers. The view is of Garnet ave and some tattoo parlors. Atmosphere is ok,... More

I love curry and was really looking forward to trying this new place. I was very disappointed. The curry dishes were very bland. The chicken was not white meat - but appeared to be leftover pieces and all dark meat. We ate almost none of the meat. Would not go back and would. It recommend it.

More like a take out place than a restaurant, but the currys are tasty. The Panang was great, the Masala good, but with an unusual combination of spices. We ordered medium strength, which was fairly mild. Nan was good - go for the ordinary nan, the garlic nan just had garlic butter added. Reasonable prices. Especially recommended for take out.

I should preface this by saying I'm NOT a huge curry fan...had a little too much of it in college. But my friend took me here and she didn't steer me wrong! That was the best curry I've had to date, and I can't wait to visit again! Friendly service and fun atmosphere.
