We tried this restaurant and were pleasantly surprised. Not a lot of atmosphere, not a large place, not a great location, but the food and the service was good and at a good price.

Tried Curry Leaf instead of our usual Sher-e-Panjab (located just 5 min Drive west) for a change + availability of Dosas (which are not offered at Sher). Terribly regret the decision.

Food was very bland (we ordered medium spicy-which we usually order at Sher), half the portion size AND more expensive than Sher-e-Panjab!!!

Ordered for take out. So couldn't really experience the service or the ambiance per se. But, even for the short while stepping into pick up the food, saw that their ambiance was drab, dated and dark- not at all inviting. The short but service at the cashier though, was ok and polite.

Not going back nor recommend anyone else. Sher-e-panjab will give you much, much better taste + value (not the buffet though) for good Indian food. And if you want better ambiance too, try Saffron Bistro up north.

While on a shopping trip to Tucson my wife and I happened on a small Indian restaurant called the Curry Leaf. What a surprise, it wasn’t much on decor, but the service was good and the food was superb. We had the vegetable thali with palik paneer, it was the best I’ve ever had. Highly recommended.

Stopped in for lunch over the weekend. Had 3 different spicy lunch specials. All were good, portions were fine, service was great. Not a fancy place, no "atmosphere", but that wasn't what we were looking for. Good value, good food & good service. Enjoyed it very much!

Really excellent Indian food, so delicious! I had Onion Pakora and Masala Dosa. YUM!!! Service was very attentive. The food was beautifully prepared and not overly salty unlike many restaurant meals today.
