Food never disappoints. You can get coupons or deals online. The food are simple but full of flavor. They have a happy hour that have great drink options and appetizers. The drinks are so inexpensive. A pitcher is less than 15 bucks. They now have a rewards system too which is convenient. My husband loves his curry and this place... More

Enjoyed our lunch there while on vacation. Fun little spot. Super yummy hummus and naan. Enjoyed when the wall was rolled up letting us feel like we were eating outside. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

Had the chicken tikka masala which was excellent, and lots of food when ordering the large plate for $11. Also ordered the massaman which was very tasty too. Draft local beers on tap until 6 p.m. for $3 made this a really inexpensive, filling, and very tasty evening. Our waitress was cool and let me order 2 pints at 5:45... More

We were looking for something different from bar food, pizza and seafood that is on every corner in California beach towns so we went to World Curry. I was very disappointed they were out of Samosas so we settled for curry puffs. They were okay but a little greasy. The naan and garlic naan were fantastic. My son got the... More

We are big fans of Indian and Thai foods, so this sounded good. It was not just good, it was wonderful. Our favorites were the Green Basil, Keema, and Panang curries. A small salad with a very good dressing comes with the meal. We also had the Veggie Pakora as a side dish. It came with some excellent dipping sauces.... More

I have been to Curry World on several occasions while in San Diego and it has always delivered delicious, fresh and perfectly spiced Curries. I always get confused ordering Indian Curries so whomever I am with I always yield to their taste buds and favorite dishes- I love it all. The restaurant has friendly service, very reasonable prices and casual... More

There is something for everyone at this laid back establishment. We sat by the open door that made it seem like we were in a colorful garage. Nice fresh air and view of the passersby. The food was made to order (spice level, mix of vegetables, type of protein) and delicious. The waitress was friendly, efficient and very knowledgeable. My... More

I have been coming back again and again to this place - my favorite curry place. I have worked my way through the menu (except the really spice stuff) and everything has been good - I've had my favorites. The naan is good (both plain or garlicy) and I enjoy the compliementary salad. Staff is attentive - my water or... More
