    The combination platters are cheap and VERY generous. 2 dishes of your choise, rice, nan, and a free salad bar. Sit upstairs for views of the Empire State Building.

    The pair of veggie samosas are a popular bargain snack, and while the cuisine is mostly North-Indian, South-Indian dosas appear on the menu and there are plenty of vegetarian options. Read more

    Best late night situation to find yourself in. Especially in the hood.... :/

    Dosa took 30 minutes and was significantly worse than what you can get at several other places in the area

    Amazing so great good times yes

    Basically the equivalent of your random Chinese take out place, but for Indian. Greasy and low quality.

    The lentil-onion things are delish.

    They overcharge for very simple food. It all tasted ok to me but my wife got pretty ill. There are much better options!

    james · April 29, 2013
  • Ersal A.

    Don't bother with the raas malai. For a simple place, two dollars for one piece is too much, especially when it's taste is just whatever.

    finally found a place that serve southern indian food and also indian candies like ladu !! <3

    Try the Combination Platter -

    Their chicken kurma is sooooo delicious, juicy, tender and flavorful! The chicken tikki Marsala (sp?) is pretty tasty but my guy wasn't impressed with their cuts of chicken at all. I'd go back though!

    Stephanie P. · February 12, 2013
  • Hyeji K.

    Delicious tandoori chicken platter! Free salad bar and comes with naan!

    Hyeji Kim · January 21, 2013
  • Alexander M.

    Medium quality food, kabab heated up in a microvawe, but still a better option for lunch or dinner than burgers & fries. WiFi hardly works on the 2nd floor.

    BEWARE FOOD SWITCHING when they take container "underneath counter" to give you food, they are switching your food to more profitable dish. They do it especially late at night & vulnerable looking pp

    honest man · August 21, 2012
  • honest m.

    Apparently they give ppl "left over" food from other customer. WHat a joke restaurant, can't believe the sanitation dept hadn't closed them down!!!!!!!!!

    honest man · August 21, 2012

    SHITTY SCAMMY RESTAURANT - pays other for "amazing reviews" to cover up other reviews. Beside being scammy ( see my other tip ) their food gives you diarrhea

    honest man · August 21, 2012
  • honest m.

    BEWARE - THEY ARE SCAMMERS and CON MANS- they have switched my meat order twice last month for vegetable order , wrapped it up in plastic so when I got home, it was too late. DON'T B SCAMMED!!!!!!!!!

    Don't forget to get yogurt raita at the chutney bar - its actually not watered down!

    Look for a "now" groupon for an even less expensive meal.

    I ordered the vegetarian platter to go. I choked on a chicken bone..

    The best chicken tikka masala ever!

    Broke? 2 veggie samosas for $2.50 and naan for $1, and you get a filling meal under $5!

    Quick & easy Indian on the go. Not gourmet but when you're hungry & broke, who cares.

  • Phil P.

    Great mango lassi.

    Phil Painson · September 18, 2011
  • dave d.

    huge portions. a little greasy but definitely one of the better tasting non-vegetarian Indian restaurants in this area. naan is excellent, as is the tandoori chicken breast

    When I first heard “Curry in a Hurry,” I thought it would end with needing the men’s room in a hurry. But the food was great! But if you ever hear “chorizo in a hurry” you should run away. Read more

    There's a good reason Russell Simmons is a regular here. Come find out...

  • Dr G.

    utthapam is ok for a late-night snack (the accompanying sambhar is very good), but masala dosas are bland and soggy. This kind of stuff is much better at Saravana, a couple of blocks down Lex.

    Try the Samosa - A cheap cure for whenever I get homesick.

    Paramendra Bhagat · January 16, 2011
  • Gil L.

    Not spicy enough for my taste but definitely one of the most affordable options in the Curry Hill area. Go for the combo platter and grab a seat upstairs.

    Gil Lopez · January 16, 2011
  • Andrew L.

    Pretty cheap for the amount of food you get...

    Andrew L. · January 5, 2011
  • Noman A.

    Get the mixed platter. The chicken samosas and nan where good ESP. the sauce made of pomegranates.

    Noman Awan · January 3, 2011
  • Jay C.

    Good food but lousy service. Go for the combination platter and not single dishes. Makes more economic sense.

    Good for the price but nothing special. Get the mixed platter not a single dish. Servers got good stories. Mine was from Bombai.
