Food was awesome. Decor is nothing to write home about. Service also very good.
Great food at the reasonable price - great service
The food and the staff are always so welcoming here.
Loved this place. My friends and I chose this place because it was close to where we were staying that weekend, and we were drawn in by the photos on their entrance. The naan bread was delicious. Very delicious food and the waitress was very friendly and welcoming.
Great experience and even got to meet the two friendly owners this time. I am a local and live in North Beach so often go there as its great tasty food and excellent service.
It is not a place for a romantic gathering, business, impress your companion, etc. Tired furniture, bad lighting, the kitchen is not separated from the dining room so, the smell is strong. Pretty decent Indian meals, reasonable prices. Servers do their job, but don't expect all-smiles staff.
The food was very tasty!! The service was very good as well. Recommended!!
Got there early on a Sunday, so there were only one or two tables occupied. Friendly servers and efficient service. The menu had the usual curry dishes, but sadly no peshwari naan. We had garlic naan, which was good nonetheless. The chicken jalfrezi was tasty with chicken breast and thigh meat and plenty of peppers. No green chill is though, although the spice level was good. Overall, this was a good curry experience.
$15 lunch buffet was great value. It has a great food selection with Nanh and Chai tea. Great value of order from the menu. Great for group. Enjoyed it.
Our group got main courses to share family style (chicken makhani, lamb korma, paneer saag) plus garlic naan, potato naan, and chapati. The chapati were a bit spicier than I'm used to getting, which was surprising but not bad, and they were very crispy and still hot from being cooked. Mango lassi helped with the spice. Also: free chai. A++ would nom again.
i was a little hesitant to eat here bc the reviews said you had to order at the counter so I thought it might not be too nice inside but we had full on table wait service, ambiance was really nice and the food was out of this world. The food is spicy so if you are not a huge fan of really spicy food, order your dishes mild. I like a little spicy so I ordered my dishes medium and I had to drink a lot of water, next time I will go with mild. We were a group of 5 on a Saturday night. We had a reservation but didn't need one. Plenty of seating. Very friendly and attentive staff. We could carry on a conversation and had no problems hearing each other and I'm deaf in one ear so that says a lot. The bill was under a $100 and we had food to take home. One of my new favs for when I'm in the city.
Well-prepared food, excellent service and an interesting experience. Owner is one of the Sherpa clan and has climbed Everest 5 times. Moved to US, saved his $ and opened his restaurant. The American dream. Enjoyed this local find.
Urban Curry isn't in the best area in town, however its food is delicious and the service is friendly and helpful. Only downside was that our main course arrived while we were still eating our appetisers.
We found Urban Curry using OpenTable and were summarily impressed with the quality of food. If you like spicy curry, lamb, rice, or just about any Indian food, this is a great place for you. We really liked the lamb kabobs, they were spicy and oh so tasty. Seriously though, the service is excellent and the food moderately priced. Highly reccommend it.
Food and staff was great. No table service.....order food at the counter and it is brought to you. Not what I expected. No alcohol but you can bring your own wine.
Had their lunch buffet. They had a wide variety of dishes and everything was really tasty. Only problem is you tend to overeat because you want to try everything!
Wow, I was amazed at how good this food was, and at an exceptionally low cost. Service is no frills- you order at the counter and they bring you your food. You need to refill your own water and complementary tea. That being said, my wife and I had an outstanding meal and ate to our hearts' content for less than $40. The tikka masala was particularly good.
Delicious lunch buffet -- has whatever you want + drinks for 11.99. In financial district, I will take it.
We were quite alone in this restaurant. The food was delicious but not noteworthy. Our server got baked during our meal, at first we barely noticed but by the end she reeked. It also took increasingly longer amounts of time before she'd return to our (the only) table. This made it a bit irksome to get the check and begone.
Urban Curry's Friday night buffet has what my dinner companion called "all of the favorite standard Indian favorites." They also have a diverse menu with plenty of options for both the vegetarian and meat lover's palate. The samosas were spicy and crisp. Everything looked and tasted acceptably fresh. The waitstaff was friendly, and they were very accommodating to the family with small children at the next table. It can take a while for your food to arrive. The noise level is a bit much, since it is mostly generated by the music videos played on the restaurant's numerous tvs. Overall, I wasn't "wowwed", but my dinner companions and I were satisfied.
The food was fabulous. We love very spicy food and here was a good choice. (Mild is also available.)
Think of this like your dive bar for Indian food ironically, however, with no booze. Excellent food, great service, almost no decor to speak of and no booze, but they will gladly refer you to the bodega across the street where you can get some brown bag help. Definitely worth trying, although I'm glad I waited until I knew my wife for 7 years before bringing her there. Definitely not a first date kind of place, but worth trying if you like good Indian food.
Food was excellent; service was outstanding. The BAINGHAN BARTHA was amazing & though we ordered everything too spicy, our server recognized it from our red faces & offered us a delicious yogurt sauce that scaled back the heat just enough. Be careful if you order everything "very spicy" because it will be! If this place was in Chicago, I would be eating there 3x a week. BIG thumbs up!
Did not receive my points from reservation as i'm guessing they didn't check me in . Service was good but took forever to get our check . Good food and cheap too so would go back just not if in a hurry
Just not very good food, ambiance or service. Came here b/c of a coupon. Won't come back.
Came here with a friend. Always awesome urban curry served us an excellent meal....just a little upset at my friend for not asking for our leftovers.
Every time I go here I order a different dish and every time my palate is delighted by fresh authentic Indian delicacies. I always enjoy myself as the portions are large - filling and fresh. One of the best in the city.
Casual, unpretentious North Indian cuisine. The youngish servers are very attentive. Open quite late on weekend, which can be a big plus. This is a great find, and we'll be back!
I can never say enough good things about this place. The food is always delicious - made fresh and quick. This last time the food was a little greasier than normal; but it was still some of the best Indian food I've tasted. I had a delightful time as always!
There was some furry in these curries! Urban Curry boasts exceptional great food at incredibly low prices. I would definitely come back here again. The staff was friendly courteous; but a tad forgetful since they were very busy (we asked the 'water girl' for a to-go box but she forgot it; the table next to us sat with their meal for 5-10 minutes waiting for their rice etc.) The food was hearty portions cooked quickly; thoroughly and with dedication; they know what they are doing. The atmosphere is very open; so good for couples or big groups; not a romantic scene. Another highlight being you can BYOB!! Which, unfortunately, I did not know at the time of dine (darn!) but will keep this in mind next time I go back.
We went b/c we had a Bloomspot coupon, and it was good, but I'm not sure I'd go back if paying full price. Service was very slow, even though it wasn't very busy when we were there. It was a good food, on the whole. They only had two high chairs and no boosters--since both high chairs were being used, we were stuck without one. And that didn't make eating very manageable. So I'd say, not a great place for kids. But they were good about making mild options for the food. And they made it up to us by giving my son a free mango lassi.
The food was outstanding and the service matched the food.
Truly the best daal I have ever had. The lamb VINDALOO was amazing. The only complaint would be the chicken tikka malsala, it was a bit dry. Looking forward to going back.
Food was delicious at a great price. Extensive authentic menu.
We had succulent chicken tandoori, marvelously spiced lamb karahi, well-cooked palak paneer and garlic naan–everyone at the table was extremely pleased with the food and attentive service.
It was Sunday evening and we arrived at the restaurant at about 6:15pm. Except for the staff, the place was empty. Takeout business appeared brisk but, by the time we left (7:45), there were only two other couples seated. Food was typical Indian fare, moderately priced and, was good. Meat was tender and dishes were not oversaturated with spice. The service was very attentive (not overly) and we felt quite comfortable there.
Wonderful staff, very tasty dishes, good size portions on most dishes. Will definitely go back to try other dishes.
We enjoyed our meal at Urban Curry. The lamb vindaloo was nice and spicy, the khalri (sp?) was lovely and spicy too. Both were thankfully not greasy at all, which is a downfall of most curry restaurants we have been to. We ordered the goat biryani and loved it. The complimentary raita and chutney were unexpected and nice to have. The naan and papadum were very good, too. We will definitely be back.
What an unexpected surprise in the heart of Broadway. i highly recommend Urban Curry. Very reasonable prices, too.
Great food, great service, very cheap--dinner for 3 with drinks was $60. Can't figure out why it's so empty.
