“Superb authentic curry”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

Great curry! We popped in for lunch and were impressed by the flavours, the fact that there was more meat than sauce (unlike some Indian places), and the prompt and attentive service. This restaurant is under new management and is well on the way to returning to its iconic status. At $8.80 for a restaurant lunch this was incredible value.

“Quick service for a takeaway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

I was on my way home from a PD day and decided to 'shout' for dinner that night. I was served promptly on arrival by the attentive owner (I think) and only had to wait for a short while until the takeways were ready for us. The only 'difficulty' I encountered was choosing which yummy takeaways to purchase. Pricing was reasonable and the meal itself was plentiful and tasty.

“Good food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

A group of us recently had a meal at the Curry Express. The fact we were a group seemed to confuse them immensely despite the fact the place was deserted. We'd booked, however, the table set didn't have enough places so we beckoned them over but they stood and watched while we pulled another table over to accommodate everyone. Then there seemed to be confusion over sorting out the bill before we'd even ordered anything. More confusion over drinks and meal ordering. We were constantly asking them for more water etc which sometimes arrived, sometimes didn't! It felt like we were guiding the waiter all the time. However, that being said, the meals were lovely and everyone agreed they enjoyed the food. The staff were pleasant the whole time, just seemed at a loss as to how to deal with more than a couple!
