a shout out for Curries and More Boca

Been a while since I have eaten here but yesterday we got take out for our office for lunch.

for $8.95 we got lamb passanda or butter chicken, basmati rice, 2 sides of veg curry, dhal, a little salad (redundant) and a roti or naan and a little pot of pastry in syrup (gulab jaam). It was a huge portion and absolutely delicious.

The vegetable samosas we ordered as an extra were fresh and excellent. Good value and none of it hot spicy - just the right amount of spices.

  1. I 2nd your shout. I can't think of a better place in the area.

      1. Smartie, has the naan improved? I don't see how it could be that bad....

          I don't believe they have a proper tandoor.

          1. re: freakerdude

            no the naan are truly awful, as johnmlinn says below they don't have a tandoor oven so they can't possibly make them fluffy and moist. The naans are dry and crispy and are way too small. I had a roti instead which was a little greasy. Not sure why they can't make a good roti or even chapatis.

            1. re: smartie

              Here's how good the food is but bad the naan is...

              I wanted to try the Balti chicjen on JohnLinn's reco a few weeks ago.

              I actually got takeout Naan from Bombay Cafe on Glades, and then drove over and picked up my takeout Balti chix from Curries N More on Palmetto!

              BTW the Balti was good but it's very deep and dark (tamarind?), I liked it but might be a bit too "strong" for some tastes.

              1. re: CFByrne

                It is a strong dish, but I guess I'm a sucker for that kind of stuff. Sounds like a great way to experience the place, btw!

          2. Their lunch specials are a good deal for $8.95. The two specials we tried were butter chicken and lamb saagwala with rice, small salad on the side, lentils, naan, and gulab jaam. We all ordered hot and mine was too hot for me. I would not want to try their indian hot level.

            Lentils were good, rice was perfect, and naan wasn't too bad. We asked about the naan and she said they make it in house but I have my doubts. This is a small place and mainly indian customers were eating lunch, so that is a good sign.

            This place is awesome in comparison to Punjab.

              FD! I'm impressed! I thought you were just all about the BBQ! You're branching out! Way to go!


              1. re: LargeLife

                I've been branched for quite a while. I eat all kinds of food, especially ethnic. I'm just highly opinionated about BBQ and authentic mexican in particular. Give me a great thai, greek, or indian resto and I am happy. It's too bad that there aren't better ethnic options here in the PBG area.

              2. re: freakerdude

                Punjab should have gone out of business by now, I'll never understand it. Blech!

                So CFByrne, was it worth all that driving around for better naan? Or can one do ok with just a meal with no naan at all? It sounds like a lot of schlepping around! :)
