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.
Excellent curries, different, pleasant informal atmosphere, good helpful service.
Really lovely evening. Staff helpful and knowledgeable. Would thoroughly recommend it, and will go again.
Delicious food and drink, drinks a little overpriced.
Lovely New Year's Eve meal with friends, great food and service, thank you.
This is probably the best curry i have eaten in my 57 years on this planet. The most exquisite food and flavours, wonderfully subtle and full i have eaten in a long time in any cuisine. Lovely service to match - a real find and treasure of a restaurant.
We had a pre concert meal. Service was prompt but not hurried. Food was excellent. Will definitely be back.
Really enjoyable experience. Plan to go back soon!
My favourite curry house in Brighton
Great food great service good prices - never had a bad time at Curry Leaf!!
Our first visit to the Kemptown Curry Leaf Cafe was to celebrate two family birthdays, though we have enjoyed a number of great meals at the Ship Street branch before. We received a lovely welcome, great service and good food as always, and it was lovely to be given little puddings with candles for our celebration. Many thanks for your hospitality!
Great place. Fantastic fresh and tasty food.
Lovely food, fab staff and a great visit. Thank you
We visited as a family of four adults for my husband's birthday & had a delicious meal. Beautifully presented food bursting with flavour. The staff were friendly & gave lots of information about the dishes we ordered & it was great value too. We look forward to a return visit. Thank you.
Lovely friendly service, great ambient interior exceptional food as ever.
Lovely flavours and good service.
Really loved it but thought the portions could be a tad more generous....will definitely be back though 👍👍
Excellent place when you need a good curry without overeating.
Everything was excellent, thanks
Delicious food good service
The quality of food was excellent. Our party of five included a vegan and vegetarian and all were well catered for. Light and airy restaurant made for attractive setting for celebratory lunch.
Wait staff were very friendly and helpful. Food was very tasty - but one of our party was kept waiting an inordinate length of time for their food to arrive - L-O-N-G after everyone else had received theirs. When asked (for a second time) about their order, there was a sudden reaction in the kitchen and the food arrived a few minutes later. Hence only awarding three stars under the “Food and Drink” category, and only four stars under “Service “. Four stars only for atmosphere- crowded, so very noisy - difficult to hear oneself think, let alone another’s conversation....
Fantastic, delicious meal as always. Will be back soon.
