Just wow. The food here is amazing! I ordered the Chicken Tikka Masala Bowl but other people in our group ordered Sexy Fries, Deconstructed Samosa, Tikka Masala Burrito, Pani Purri, and Holy Moly Fried Ravioli. There was not a single leftover present when we finished our meal - that's how good it all was.

Curry Up Now is a restaurant that can take you on a one-of-a-kind journey across India. It’s not one part of India, it’s all parts. It’s unique and affordable Indian street food. The restaurant will also feature alcohol, which struck me as a very strong selling point.
