New Sri Lankan Restaurant in Torrance- Curry Leaf
Passed a new Sri Lankan restaurant in Torrance called Curry Leaf, at the corner of Crenshaw and Redondo Beach Blvd across from El Camino.
I popped my head in and saw they have a cheap buffet for lunch but also a full menu of a la carte dishes.
Has anyone tried it?
My wife and I tried it last weekend.
Underwhelming, to say the least. If it was horrible, I would've surely remembered to write about it -- but this place delivered such a boring experience I forgot to post about it!
P.S. The owner/operator better better watch the temps on that hot table; most of the stuff was lukewarm, and *nothing* was hot. Some of the hot-dishes came right out of the kitchen and went on a non-heated surface, only to cool down over the course of our meal. Good way to get busted...
They have been saying for weeks that they're going to discontinue the steam table in the evening and start serving from a menu. They tried it briefly, but things were so chaotic that they went back to the steam table. They seem very amateurish, and I don't have much hope for the place.
There are several Sri Lankan restaurants in San Fernando Valley as well:
