“Best Curry this side of Johannesburg”
Review of Curry Up

Curry Up
Ranked #10 of 85 Restaurants in Roodepoort
Restaurant details
Reviewed 19 July 2017 via mobile

This is absolutely the best Indian restaurant this side of Johannesburg in the West Rand. The food is made top quality and comparable in price to other Indian restaurants. They also offer a unique carb-free rice option using cauliflower rice, but prepared in a delicious way. Favorites include Lamb Rogan Josh, Chicken Tika Masala and Butter Chicken. The kids can eat there too as our kids and friends kids eat the Tika Chicken for kids and they love it! We've now taken various friends to this restaurant and everyone have been complementing the food.

Visited them for a take away, it was great! We had a butter chicken & a chicken tikka marsala with garlic naan breads. It was well prepared full of flavor and just very good! Normally curry can be very oily but these guys have got it sorted it was creamy and well balanced. We will definitely be back! Well done guys keep it up!

This is a little gem newly opened at Clearwater Mall on the West Rand. Excellent service, good prices, well presented and the craft beer was an unexpected pleasure. We will definitely be back. Staff above average.

We actively avoid eating in shopping malls because of the crowds, busyness, parking etc. etc.

We really enjoy curry and until now, Ban Jaara down the road was the place we went too. Our friends who were referred to Curry Up by their Indian friends, after trying it for themselves, told us to try Curry Up, so we bent our rules and went to Clearwater Mall.

My benchmark for curry places is the Rogan Josh dish. Curry Up's Rogan Josh is the best I have tasted in the West Rand and for the most part, possibly Johannesburg. My wife also raved about her Durban Lamb Curry.

You also need to try their innovative drinks like the Tomato juice cocktail or Cranbury juice which were verrry unusual and very good. I wont give it away here, try them yourself.

So, compared to Ban Jaara, how does Curry Up, stack up?

The food is definitely better;
The price is more or less the same;
The service is good at both.

Ban Jaara is however safe because it has a more convenient smoking facility for my partner AND serves my partner's favourite brand of wine and is not inside a busy shopping mall.

Curry Up's food however, is the hands down winner of the 2.
