I had been to Curry Express before for dinner and had to return for their Chicken Patties which are these ground chicken pastries in a puff pastry that are loaded with curry and peas. They have the most amazing flavor to them and at $3.00...are well worth the trip to Curry Express. Every bite is delicious. The restaurant has wonderful food.More

I had passed Curry Express and their very nice lunch specials when visiting the neighborhood and I ended up having dinner here a few days later. It thought the food and the service were very good. The portion sizes are rather large so come with...a good appetite. I had the Ginger Chicken Kebab with a side Naan bread and a Chicken Patty. The Kebabs were good but they were pre-made and they microwaved them so they were a little hard at the end. Still they were extremely flavorful and were nicely spiced. The naan bread tasted fresh and was a nice accompaniment to the kebabs. The kebabs were also served with a small salad. What was delicious and stop in for it as a snack was the Chicken Patty. It was a flaky pastry filled with a spicy ground chicken and it was wonderful. Each bite had a spicy/savory taste and the outside pastry was buttery and flaky. It was the perfect snack. The service is very friendly. The place could be a bit cleaner.More

There are a lot of Indian restaurants around Murray Hill, but you should choose Curry Express! This place isn't much to look at, but the food is applaud-worthy and a great value. I ordered the vegetarian platter. Best korma I've even tasted, period. The chana...masala was just the right spicy. Eggplant? omg, so good. I thought the garlic nan was a little too garlicy, but other than that, all wonderful everything. I'll be back soon!More

Very simple place, but excellent home-style cooking. I go here all the time. Lots of variety and although it's not an all-vegetarian place, there selection of vegetarian dishes is wide and delicious. Very good especially if you like spicy food!

This review would be four stars if not for the abundant use of non-biodegradable styrofoam — both the plates and the cups are styrofoam. Otherwise the place is great for a simple, quick and affordable Indian meal with abundant vegetarian choices. The ambience is nonexistent,...so it's not a place for a date, but on the plus side, as of my last visit, it now has an "A" rating from the city's health department (it used to have a "B").More

Me and my friends come here all the time. The food is really phenomenal, the staff is super friendly, and it comes at a really great price. I have nothing to complain about from this restaurant. The veggie combo platter is an incredible value.

My boyfriend and I ate here several times during a recent trip to New York. Their combo plates are a very good deal; each time we overate and still had leftovers! The staff are friendly as well, and I look forward to going back.

Best curry I have ever had, highly recommend. No frills and very friendly, cheap and filling. Super tasty dessert also.
