We had an appetizer and two entrees. The appetizer was good. My wife was happy with her chicken dish. I was not happy with my Baingan Bharta. It was mushy and not very flavorful. The service was fair. The server was very nice but not very efficient and she could not answer some of our questions about items on the... More

Their special is supposed to be tikka masala. It tasted like it came from a bottle at the grocery store! Awful. Added a star because my husbands lamb was decent

My wife and I don't eat much Indian food, but decided to try this place due to the reviews. We were not disappointed. We had soup and fried fish for appetizers which were excellent. I think the fried Talipa was really good. I decided to go for the Mixed Grill and got a selection of meats atop of veggies and... More

The only thing which prevents this from getting five stars is the decor, and toilets, which could do with freshening up. Otherwise we had a wonderful meal, friendly staff, sit where you like, good prices and service. Good portions too. The cheese nan bread was special. Recommended.

Large functional restaurant that was rather empty for 9.00pm on a Friday evening. Perhaps it was expected as there were only 2 waiting staff. The chicken tikka masala was nicely flavoured but the chicken a bit tough, whilst the tandoori mixed grill was a tad dry and tough. Unusually, we did not finish it. Service was good, but we did...

This is our second time in the area trying this place. Seating is plentiful. Service is so so, very slow and slightly difficult because the server didn't have a very good grasp on the English language. The food was awesome. All 4 of us were very pleased with our meals. Will be more than happy to return again for another... More

We popped in for a quick lunch on a Saturday and we were not let down. The place was almost empty but do not let that scare you away. The service was prompt and friendly. The food was excellent. We got the butter chicken and my wife got a large salad and deep fried vegetables to go with it. Excellent... More

Not much of a welcome as we walked in the door, we were pointed to a table right at the front and when we asked to move to the back of the room we were frowned at (despite there being only 2 other diners in the whole place!) before the waitress agreed and told us to pick a table. We... More

We ate Tikka Masala and Lamb Curry. Both were quality and quantity wise right on target. This was one of the really good meals on our 3week trip. But most important are still the people. Our waitress really contributed a lot to our nice evening. Thank you.

The experience was an average one. The chicken curry was cooked in a hurry it seems. In the Paneer masala the paneer pieces were quite hard. It could have been better.

Ancient delicious top of the line taste recipes are not easy to come by. However, at Urban Curry, not only can you choose among the recipes, you will experience a taste that is both unique, delicious, and considered by some as the best food in the world. The menu is the heart of every restaurant's life. At Urban Curry, it is an experience just to browse through the unique menu items. The exotic names and descriptions are from both north and south Indian and Nepalese cuisine, which reflects the differences of south Asian delicacies so vast and diverse. The freshly grinned spices and herbs for every recipe are what makes us unique in San Francisco.

Staying in North Beach / Telegraph Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian ristorante come together to create the charming neighbourhood of North Beach, once the stomping grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always suitable for younger visitors, few neighbourhoods in the city exude as much European charm and style. Peruse a bookstore for the literature of Kerouac, Ferlinghetti and Ginsberg, grab some gelato and head to Washington Square for a perfect afternoon of people watching. Just east of North Beach, the hills and staircases of Telegraph Hill are a unique delight. At its peak, the art deco Coit Tower provides sweeping panoramic views of the bay and city. The beautifully landscaped Filbert Street Steps, a street too steep for a roadway, rewards those willing to hike uphill. Keep your ears open and you might even hear the squawk of the wild parrots who call this neighbourhood home.
