Curry Up Cafe in Woodland Hills--Anybody Tried?

This is a new place that opened up on Ventura Blvd. just east of Topanga Canyon that sounds like a cross between Hurry Curry and a Chinese restaurant. Sounds like it could be interesting--or a disaster. Has anybody been by yet?

    1. Been waiting for this place to open ever since I saw the signage a few months back. Its right across the street from the Jerrys Deli.

      Tried it out for the first time at lunch today.

      I ordered the regular pork cutlet curry and opted for the medium heat curry, served "home style", which comes with chunks of carrot and potato. The curry seemed somewhat thicker and had a tiny bit more heat than what I'm used to from Curry House and from Hurry Curry, but was still very tasty.

      My buddy had the kahula pork curry, which was a kind of shredded/pulled pork, mixed right in the curry sauce and was also quite good.

      Curry is not all that they do, but for me Its nice having a new option for japanese style curry in the valley ever since the demise of E&E Cafe in Northridge a while back. Will definitely come back.

      1. re: RacerX

        FYI......another option closer to the former E&E is Small Island on Reseda & Plummer. Not gourmet by any means but good for a quick curry fix.

      2. My wife and I went last week and liked it quite a bit. We had the kahlua pork, and it was delicious, both fresh and as a leftover.

        The attitude of the chef and server was excellent--very friendly and helpful.

        CUC is similar to Hurry Curry of Tokyo, but not Hurry Curry in Venice.

        1. oooh, thanks for posting this! gotta try it. is the price also comparable to hurry curry?

          1. Hello! I just tried Curry Up Cafe. I had a wonderful experience! The food was great, not to mention the excellent service. I tried their Thai apple salad which was so unique and tasty. It had a delicious peanut dressing. Their curries were also very good. I recommend the kahula pork curry which was like nothing that I had tasted before with just the right balance of pork and curry.

            The service was great. As soon as my green tea was half empty, there was someone there to fill it. The waitress was really friendly and the chef even came out to talk to me to ask how things were. Definitely a one of a kind place!

            This place is definitely one that I would go back to! It is a new hidden gem!
