About Curry Leaf Cafe - Kemptown Kitchen
Sharing with friends is what our Kemptown Kitchen is all about – a light, open space where diners can grab anything from a quick bite to a full-scale Indian feast for up to 30 people, all in full view of the kitchen and chefs preparing it.
The food arrives at the table tapas-style, as soon as it's ready rather than in a conventional 'starter and main' format, and the menu changes with the seasons to keep things fresh for regular diners. Vegans, vegetarians and gluten-intolerant diners are well catered for – along with families looking for a spacious, friendly lunch stop on weekends, when the kitchen is open from 1pm till late.
The food was not as good as we've had at the branch in the laines and it was quite noisey.
It's always a special occasion to go to the Curry Leaf.
Thoroughly enjoyed our visit and our food.
All excellent as shown above
Outstanding in every way. Food made with love.
The food at the curry leaf cafe is always amazing! We travel from West Sussex to eat here, it’s the only Indian restaurant we visit as no other restaurant comes close to this!
Delicious food and friendly and efficient staff. I was there early on a Sunday evening so it was quiet but still had a friendly vibe.
Food was amazing!! Perfect timing too, we had the set tasting menu and each course came out just as you were finishing the other! Perfect flavours and the mango lassi is to die for! Definitely coming again (and they do vouchers, so a great present)
Lovely evening and food, my only criticism would be that despite booking the table and agreeing when I booked that we could stay until 10pm (we are old friends who rarely see one another and this was a clincher for the booking), we were hurried off the table and asked to move at 9.30 which was a shame.
Something a little different from your usual curry.
All of the family together, enjoying an unhurried meal. Good food in a great atmosphere - thank you!
Street food so over cooked to the point of being burnt. The okra chips particularly were black charcoal all the way through. When we told the waiter he told us they were meant to be crispy.. these went way beyond crispy.
Amazing food. The sharing menu is outstanding. Best Indian food in town.
Meal was so lovely More unusual and I love the tapas size dishes to share and some good heaty options too for hot spice! Xx
We had a wonderful timne and will return!
Great service and absolutely delicious food.
Prompt, polite service and great food!
Great food. Great Service
Excellent food and the service was warm and welcoming.
Excellent - Service, food & atmosphere. Love this place! So did all 12 of us at our Xmas lunch! See you next year. JB
Brilliant service, food and atmosphere. Lovely spot for a pre-Concorde 2 meal. Will be back.
Andrew, Emma and the team organised a wonderful staff Christmas party for us. The food was as good as ever and it was great to introduce some of the office who hadn't eaten here before.
I came here for my birthday. All the food was amazing and then staff were really helpful and friendly. It is reasonably priced too.
Divine dishes, unique flavour in every dish. You MUST try the cake ❤️
