Curry Leaf- at death's door??

mdog Apr 13, 2007 10:55 AM

The indian food in bkheights has never been anything special, but my wife and I could always count on great chicken tikka masala at Curry Leaf. Well- no more. Had it delivered last night. It tasted like they had dumped a pound of salt in it, and it was strangely spicy. I would go so far as to call it borderline horrible. The naan has also gone WAY downhill from when we first had their food about 2 years ago. It was just sad.

    I walked by this past week- there was a sign saying that they were only open for takeout and delivery. I think they were doing some work on the interior, so maybe they were renovating.

      Funny, I had a meal delivered about 3 or 4 weeks ago and it was just fine. Nothing to rave about, but perfectly acceptable.

      Anyone else want to weigh in?

        I think/hope that you had an off-night. Have been there twice in recent weeks - once carryout and once dining in. Both times, it was as good as usual and, in fact, I thought that the meat dishes were actually more well-seasoned than in the past. I think it is a good place, and wildly better than Amin on Montague St.
