Curry n' Hurry

update: Curry n' Hurry is closed, but the recipes (and the peacock) moved to Curry in the Box.

In a word: Hit and miss, but the peacock's pretty cool.

The specs: #0106
Review at Badger Herald.

JM ate the tandoori chicken with a fountain drink.
Nichole ate the bhel puri and butter nan with a fountain drink.
The bill was $15, or $7.50/person, plus tip.
Nichole gave Curry n' Hurry an A; JM gave Curry n' Hurry a B+ (see our grading rubric).

Latest Curry n' Hurry news and reviews

We think this is the most frequently reviewed restaurant we've come across yet.  What is it about University Square that produces such a wide variety of generally good, moderately cheap food?

Curry n' Hurry dining room

Nichole loves coming here for a curry and a Coke. On this hot summer night, the bhel puri, a cold snack of puffed rice, gramflour straws (sev), tomatoes, potatoes, coriander, and sweet and sour chutney, was an ideal light dinner, and at $3 totally painless. The heat of the spices grew slowly and built to a pleasantly warm sensation, rather than an alarming fire. The butter and sesame seeds of the nan bread was just rich enough to cool the tongue.

JM thought the tandoori chicken didn't quite come together. It was a bit dry, and he declined to use the yogurt sauce.  The flavor was great and delicately worked through the chicken but most of the chicken's juice was gone. The papad (kicky lentil bread) was acceptable for something that had many things in common with glass.  Fortunately, taste wasn't one of them.  Overall, the meal was enjoyable but lacked the closure and glowing warmth that accompany the best meals.

Actually, it was the rumor of the huge peacock decoration that piqued Nichole's curiosity about Curry N' Hurry. Those of you with no sense of restraint, therefore, will not want to look at this picture we took.

That is one frightening peacock.
