Best Indian I’ve eaten; my partner said the tanidoori lamb was one of the best bites he had this year. Great meal in a nice setting. Excellent food to share.

The food was delicious. We had the cauliflower and coconut shrimp for appetizers and chicken tikka masala and the lotus blossom dish for entrees. Everything was very good but the portions were very small. They had a great cocktail menu and the restaurant has a great atmosphere. Excellent service, just be prepared for smaller portions!

The spices were exquisite in the chicken Tikka masala and the lamb vindaloo. The individual spices were distinct yet blended to perfection. The cauliflower appetizer was great. The room is beautiful. Even the bathrooms are beautiful. This place is better than Indian Accent at a small fraction of the cost. Don't waste your money. Come here.

Duck and samosa were amazing. Service was ok. The guy took my plate away before I had finished, dropped some rice on me when clearing the table. The waiter stated every dish was world class, which I think is naive. Overall, some bits were good, some questionable.

The restaurant itself has a very intimate feel which is perfect for dates. The food was spectacular very authetic and flavourful. I wish the portions were larger considering the price. Also i wish the food was warmer upon being served. Other than that the staff if very pleasant and attentive. They were kind enough to call me in advance to fair warn me that they were unable to serve alcohol, which was appreciated. I will definitely dine here again and highly recommend this restaurant!

Food was delicious. No alcohol was being served. Was told that I received a call about this, but never did. Wasn't a major deal just disappointing for a celebratory dinner. Service was still very good and food delicious. Although having to order rice or naan to have it with the meal and not be included was slightly annoying when there are other Indian food places nearby with similar quality and better prices.

Kurry Qulture was an enjoyable evening. The decor and service are great. Unfortunately they were waiting for their liquor license to be renewed to we couldn't imbibe. I am a huge Indian cuisine lover. We got a the coconut shrimp as our appetizer and followed that up with lamb vindaloo and lamb rojan gosh. The presentation and the tenderness of the lamb were great and overall is was good. I think ultimately I am just an Indian purist and prefer the authentic cuisine over the vogue style Indian. And of course the price points include that with each entree being $20 each and the rice an additional $3.

Been a while since our last visit (we live in Boston). Thrilled to be back. Such delicious plates. Soft, slow-cooked meats, rich, layered sauces, varied veggie dishes. Top quality service and a warm welcome. Fit for a Maharaja!

So I would like to start that I'm not the typical review writing person, I eat somewhere, I'll enjoy it and move on, but... this restaurant deserved 10 out of 10 stars, absolutely amazing, I was stunned to hear that they are a Halal restaurant because I don't usually find places that keep their standards that high when it comes to fine dining and the authenticity of Indian cuisine was there. Every bite was a titillating feeling in my taste buds. I felt as if my palate expanded to so many different flavors with every bite I highly recommend everyone to at least try it out once. Thank you
