“Small, friendly place with excellent food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2014

Booked the Curry Leaf for a party of 12.
Not being local, I really didn't know what to expect. We were seated as soon as we arrived, and I was a little thrown by the fact our party took up almost half the venue.

The menu is small, but concise. Imagine just the "Chefs Specials" from a normal curry house and you get the idea.

The service was exemplary throughout.

My party ordered a wide variety of food from the menu, and all commented on how great it tasted and there was not a single complaint.

The amount of food served is substantial, and many found it difficult to finish their main course.

“A curry with a difference”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2014 via mobile

Having lived in Bradford and Huddersfield this restaurant offers something quite unique. We had the Sri Lankan curry which was very aromatic and tasty. The service was brilliant and very friendly, with good advice on what to choose. We would highly recommend this for something a little different. The only negative is that is that it is cash only other wise it would be a 5 star.

“A Really Excellent Meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

I went to Scarborough for the Cricket Festival and had planned to viusit several restaurants with good reviews on Trip Advisor. The Curry Leaf was far and away the best. I was there early on a Thursday evening so was the only customer. I received very good service. I started with Chilli Paneer, wehich came in a very generous portion and was beautifully cooked. I had a Sri Lankan lamb curry which was also exactly spiced and the lamb was very tender. I don't usually have a dessert, but on this occasion I tried Watalappam. Which was sweet confection of coconut, cinammon and other tasty ingredients. It made an excellent finish to the meal, all washed down with a pint of draught Cobra.
