  • "The chat starter and Anjeeri Shrimp (really creamy) are absolutely amazing! I loved the banana kulfi. We'll be back."

  • "We arrived at our reservation time, but was not greeted by any employee of the restaurant when we entered. We had to go to the bar to ask for help and was left standing while a server went to clean off a table for our use. After waiting for 20mins, the waiter finally took our drink order and asked if we would like some Naan. We said yes. 20 more mins later they drinks arrived, but no bread. 15 mins later, the waiter provided an on the house appetizer and stated that the kitchen was backed up. When pressed on an estimate, we were told that she "was unable" to know. 20 more minutes pass by, we have not been asked if we want another drink or been updated as to how long dinner will take. 20 more minutes in, we decided to leave."

  • "A friend recommended Curry Craft for my wife and my rare date night. It was really good. Romantic setting, good service, and good food. It is all I ask and they delivered."

  • "Third or fourth time here, keeps getting better. Great flavors, great choices. Well-selected and crafted drinks to start, and too many options to choose from in one visit (bring a friend or two?). While an omnivore, I could go without meat here and be happy. Start with the "chaat" and you will not be disappointed!"

  • "The place of crowded, the service slow, and the food was okay. However, the tomato soup was wonderful. The rest was just ok."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "This place could be so much more fun. The soup was outstanding, and the entrees were good, but we waited 90 minutes for our entrees, and 30 minutes before we received our starter. We weren't in a hurry, but we were hungry. This was true for all. One explanation, no apologies and nonchalant attitudes. Not rude. Just the shrug. Go for the soup. Skip the rest. I recommend only if you know the deal."

  • "It was the best Indian food we have ever had. In fact, with me being a foodie, I consider it as the best of the best gourmet Indian food restaurant. I highly recommend it. You will be very happy. Please keep in mind that everything is made when you order it so expect a small wait."

  • "Food was wonderful and very friendly service with a cordial checking i by the chef made for a very nice dinner adn outing."

  • "We don't understand the hype. The food was all good, but not exceptional except for the mushroom - goat cheese naan which was excellent! The service was very good considering how busy the restaurant was."
    Dined on 1/17/2014
  • "Love the décor, the food was outstanding as was the service. Had to wait just a while for entrée as the root veggies were taking a little longer, but the chef sent out the most divine complementary appetizer to fill the gap! Our first time there and can not wait to go back!!!"
    Dined on 1/14/2014
  • "Had a great dinner with delicious authentically spiced indian food. Wine selection fit the menu. The chef was gracious and came out to chat. He would be a hit in London or New York, we're lucky to have his talents here. One member of our party dropped a gold bracelet in the booth and when she called back to see if anyone had found it they had it, much to her relief. Honestly great food with honestly great people. A combination that can not be beat"

  • "You won't make a mistake ordering ANYTHING on the menu here! The chef has been a consultant for several Richmond restaurants and his use of spices and regional dishes is fantastic. Chicken Tikka Masala is always my "go-to" dish in judging any Indian restaurant, and Curry Craft's is excellent. Beyond that, most of their offerings are not found in the traditional Richmond Indian restaurant, and they are wonderful discoveries!"
    Dined on 12/17/2013
  • "Very understaffed the night we were there. Two servers for the whole restaurant and the kitchen was "backed up" and the place was not even full. Almost three hours for a dinner. Food ok, but not great. Pass on the Chicken Tika Marsala. Chef makes the rounds of the tables. Maybe he should be cooking. Nice room and great location. A work in progress."
    Dined on 12/11/2013
  • "Curry Craft is a treasure in an unassuming package. Chef Oza's use of spices is incredible. We shared four entrees and each was truly unique. The chef is vegetarian, so he knows how to prepare delightful vegetarian fare. Highly recommended!"
    Dined on 12/7/2013
  • "The chef provided a free, unexpected appetizer and we had two great entrees. One was a spicy lamb dish, the other a mild cream curry seafood dish. One "hot" and one "cool." I usually go for the spicy side, and both were excellent. Serving sizes were just right. Greater Richmond is fortunate to have several very good Indian restaurants. Curry Craft joins that company."
    Dined on 11/30/2013
  • "Exceptional menu - well prepared dishes - very good service - the chef's specials are just that, very special - and he follows them to your table - very inviting interior - comfortable."
    Dined on 11/23/2013
  • "Phenominal food...from a white girl (Indian in a former life) Indian foodie and cook. So happy to find this right in Carytown and not have to drive out to suberbs for quality Indian food. Flavorful, inventive, not overly cooked or salted. Service was slow but pleasant. Bit pricey but worth it. Didn't sample the drink menu but will next time - some really enticing options. Odd to see no Indians working out front - staff fit the white hippy Carytown standard."
