“Excellent”
Reviewed December 29, 2013 via mobile

Me and my friends pre-booked for lunch, it so especial as table was set exclusively for us. Food was great and excellent to my taste! It wasn't hot as i thought it was but you can asked in advance if you want it hot. The place was good, i felt like i was in india as i was with my indian friends which somehow they managed to eat traditionally by hand. It was good service with great food. Would highly recommend to people who like indian foods.

“Brilliant food. Just great cooking.”
Reviewed December 27, 2013 via mobile

You would never think it from the basement location - but very near the theatre, station and the fab Crown Spa Hotel - make an effort to eat at the Curry Leaf.
If you're undecided, get a thali and try at least 10 different small servings of fabulous pickles, vegetable curries, dhals and beautiful breads and poppadoms plus a huge serving of a perfectly cooked curry and rice on a banana leaf.

It's just a charming place to eat the best food.
(Not to be confused with Leeds restaurant of same name where the food looks similar but the service is appalling).

“Great food cooked with thought best vegetarian choice on the yorkshire coast”
Reviewed December 9, 2013

Ive eaten meals in Brick lane and Rusholme's 'curry mile' during the last few months but will be returning with glee to the at the Curry leaf this week as I know I will get a much better meal!
The chef and management team are the owners so they really go out of their way to ensure your meal will be what you want. Food Which will be adapted from the the wide selection on the Menu to suit your particular tastes or needs. Probably the bet vegetarian restaurant on the Yorkshire coast. They also do a mean chicken Thali!
Yes they do like to use Chilli but will lower the traditional fiery intensity of the dishes if you politely request them to do so

“The Best Curry”
Reviewed November 16, 2013

This is a Sri Lankan restaurant so the food may be hotter than the ordinary run of the mill Indian food most people eat. Having been to Sri Lanka and loved the food we go here a lot. Yet again taking some friends who had not been before they were impressed. Staff accommodating, service good, delicious food in a happy atmosphere. It is very reasonable as well.
