My husband and I were initially searching for a wood fired pizza restaurant (which we found was closed at the time). We continued walking up the street as we smelt the beautiful aroma coming from the Curry Leaf Cafe. We hadn't had Indian for so long, so decided to give it a shot - incidentally we'd observed many takeaway deliveries... More

I have been eating here for years and have never been disappointed. The food is always fresh, healthy and authentic. You will not find bland westernised curries full of cream and oil here. They have all the favourites and some specialties. Great for vegetarians! The owners are very nice and the service is good. Never had any problems with wait... More

They serve food on a fancy, golden, curved plate. Ordered malai kofta and kadhai paneer. I love that their food is not too oily. We had a lovely dinner. There was a lot of awkward communication with staff but it can be ignored.

Ask the waiting staff for their recommendations or the chefs specials it is really worth the eat. Share your plates and have a try.

Nice flavours, great selection of options, reasonable prices. The difference between 3 and 4 stars is the attention to detail and table service....... Just a bit lacking. Would come back!

We had the whole restaurant to ourselves - it was a great venue and the food was amazing - great selection and wonderful taste sensations. Service was excellent and considering there was 30 of us the speed of serving and clearing was fantastic. BYO and with a liquor shop 3 doors away you don't have to worry about carrying wine... More

The food was very ordinary, and the service was appalling. A friend and I went on a special deal and all the staff did was try to upsell. The whole experience was ruined and I would never go back. They keep sending me promotional emails time after time, even when I unsubscribe from every one.

Decent rogan josh curry, ok veg curry puffs, perfectly cooked rice, but the chicken tikka wasn't great. Overall ok but nothing special.

Our favorite local (adults and kids alike). Ingredients are fresh and eat in or take away the quality is always consistent. Portions are a good size and there is a wide variety of menu items ensuring something for everyone. Staff are friendly and helpful. They do get very busy on Friday and Saturday nights, so best to book a table... More

Nice restaurant,staff very good. Menu is huge and the atmosphere very good. An enjoyable night with friends but the price for what we got was excessive. There are great and not so great Indian restaurants this is great on flavour not so great on cost.
