You would think a placed named "King of Curries" could make a good curry. The flavours of our 3 curry meals were fine, but we were lucky to find 2-3 pieces of meat hiding in the sauce. I like medium heat in my Asian food, but found all of the dishes I ordered to be very hot. One of the... More

Ordered some food, which took awhile, but it was Monday night, usually a prep night for most Indian food places. Dish was oily, ordered a medium hot, was closer to mild, and the raita was watered down mixture of milk, yoghurt and a few bits of mint. Average at best

We normally order with the eat now app. Food and cost has been consistent all year with chicken and lamb that just comes part and delicious tikka as well. Sadly, our last experience has not been as good and the lamb was tough and almost inedible. Hopefully this is not an indicator of things to come...

Not very happy with the meal from here, my first attempt to find a curry house in Canberra left me disappointed to say the least. Generous portions but I felt I was just getting a generic curry rather than a well prepared meal. Rice was poor.

I can’t count the number of times I have been to King of Curries — often on a Friday night when my partner and I are tired after a week’s work, and just sitting down and having the meals brought to us seems the best thing in the world. Gourmets will argue about the standard of the food, whether this... More

Very disappointed. Ordered first time a few weeks ago and loved the food. But today, firstly, they delivered an incorrect order, then took 40mins to rectify that and bring the correct order (I'd ordered home delivery, which I paid $2 for, btw). Turns out wasn't worth waiting 1 hour 40 mins for my good anyway. Poor quality naan (which was... More

We are always looking for any good delivery and take-way restaurant servicing broader Belconnen and decided to try KoC instead of TajAgra because KoC was slight more competitive on prices. But we found that they replace spice with SALT. TOO MUCH SALT. This is our 2nd (or more, we keep trying) attempt at enjoying KoC. So disappointed and lesson learnt.... More

Visited on a quiet mid-week night and received a very friendly greeting. The menu is varied, plenty to choose from - we enjoyed the pakora, beef shahi korma and bhuna lamb. All were good sized serves and very tasty. There was also plenty of rice. But the best was the cheese naan - hot, soft and a great size, it... More

Ate here on a Friday night and it was moderately busy. The decor is simple, but inoffensive. The staff were lovely and very cheerful. We had the Lamb Coconut Fry and the Beef Vindaloo, both were good but even the moderately spicey vindaloo was very mild. Other people have complaied that the servings are small, but they seem about the... More
