Great Take Out!!.
After moving to the Natick / Framingham area from Somerville / Cambridge (where Indian restaurants are everywhere and to which I went to often), I was having a very difficult time finding an Indian restaurant worth eating at. Then one day recently while shopping for Christmas we found this little Indian restaurant nestled between a Christmas Tree Store and a Dick's Sporting Goods. What the heck I thought let's try it. We got take out and the food was great!! We have done take out a couple of times since and always with great enjoyment.
Top-notch, inexpensive Indian cuisine with an impressive pedigree delights satisfied customers behind a suburban, strip mall storefront.. The Scene One wouldn't normally expect to find such marvelous Indian cuisine next door to a mammoth Christmas Tree Shop, but that's exactly where Curry Leaf resides. Suburban families fill this comfortable, no-frills dining room to enjoy exceptional cuisine and courteous, attentive service (no surprise, given that the owners also run Needham's Masala Art and Harvard Square's popular Bombay Club). Those who plan on ordering a lethal curry should check out the worthy wine list. The Food Curry Leaf's lengthy menu of Indian delicacies provides many tough decisions. After devouring an order of homemade vegetable samosas, order one of the wildly flavorful house curries--try the murg chutneywala for a zingy combination of mango, coriander, mint, and ginger. Don't leave without tasting the savory masala paneer palak (cubes of homemade cheese smothered in spinach, masala and garlic) or subtly sweet gulab jamun (warm cream dumplings dipped in rose water syrup).
Awful customer service.
The host who also was our server was rude and obviously needed to sharpen his skills in the customer service area. For a Saturday afternoon with only 1 other table being served, the server appeared rushed and lacked any social etiquette. Frankly, the server needs to know that this is not a 'Dhaba' service. As a customer, I chose to be a patron of your restaurant. Being a 'top notch' restaurant means more than good food; it means good service too!
If you're looking for GOOD SERVICE, food and ambience, I recommend you go elsewhere!!
awful customer service.
The server is very rude. After seating us he told us that if we had entered the restaurant 1 min later, he would have refused to seat us. He kept talking to the other servers in Hindi/Punjabi. Also, one guest left a hefty tip so in hindi he discussed that with the other servers and they started playing a guessing game as to who among the guests seated in the restaurant at that time would leave them big tips.
The food is the only reason we went there. The Tabahi Naaan is especially good.
Food is okey ( good cooks may be).Service is not welcoming.Price is ookey.
A guy asked me " wait here i will come to you" he came after 10 min. showed me a seat. (although all seats are empty) He came after 10 min and not even bothered to offer me water at least. Servers insisted on tip. That i have found it very strange.
I will not visit them again in my life . Gold star is best in service and average in food
Fantastic Food/Excellent Value.
It was not long after my first visit to the Curry Leaf that it skyrocketed to the top of my personal list of favorite local restaurants. The menu offers a wide variety of choices that are delicious, healthy, and easy on your wallet. The waitstaff is highly friendly, attentive and efficient. I have never been disappointed with my experience at the Curry Leaf. Favorite dishes include the Kathi Rolls and Chicken Saag.
Unfriendly service, okay food.
This is an ok indian restaurant. I can name about 3 others in the area with better food and friendlier service. The staff is very unfriendly and I gave this place 4 tries but I am finally through with this place.
