For our last meal in Kingston we decided on Indian food. Curry original didn't disappoint. Service was lovely and very speedy. I had chicken korma which was exceptionally flavourful. My husband had chicken vindaloo which was flavourful but exceptionally spicy. My husband loves spicy food...More

Ordered take-out here but the location and look of the restaurant was fabulous. The food is so amazing. I particularly love the chicken tikka marsala, butter chicken, and onion baji (sp?).

We went at 8:30 on a Friday night, getting seated just before the rain came pouring down. But we got soaked with this meal. The food was not fresh and was overcooked. If curry original means it was originally made when the restaurant opened I...More

The menu is extensive. The vegetable samosas were to die for. Chicken Dhansak was incredible. I can honestly say this is probably the best Indian restaurant I have ever eaten in. I would highly recommend this place. The staff were friendly, polite and helpful even...More

Recently visited with my wife and young child. The restaurant was a great choice, and we thoroughly enjoyed a selection of curry dishes. Most notably, the butter chicken was outstanding! We would visit again when in Kingston.

We go to Curry Original every time my daughter is in town. Her fave is the Chicken Curry, mine is the Butter Chicken and my husband grazes among tons of different meals. There is lots of variety, lots of levels of heat or no heat,...More

Not authentic. Too sweet. : ( Crust or wrapping of samosa is too thick with frozen beans and is served with a sauce that lacks taste. Butter chicken is too sweet with meat overlooked. Eggplant with shrimp also lacks favour of Indian cuisine. Overall dishes...More

I ate at Curry Original recently for lunch. Though it was generally quite expensive, most members of our party ordered from the lunch menu (not displayed on the restaurant website). The good news is that the food was very tasty, and lunch combo portions quite...More

I enjoyed my meal at Curry Original. The staff were attentive, and the place had a busy, relaxed atmosphere. It's a good location - downtown Kingston. Lots of vegetarian options. Would go again.

This is definitely a question to ask the restaurant. I cannot speak for them. Their take out menu says " set menus can be arranged to fit your needs and budget". They have a website, and phone no. is 613-531-9376. They... More
