People can be very particular about their Indian food. Once they've found a place they like, they give up the search forever and settle into a lifetime of fidelity to that one Indian restaurant.
People can be very particular about their Indian food. Once they've found a place they like, they give up the search forever and settle into a lifetime of fidelity to that one Indian restaurant. On occasion they may step out on their main curry squeeze, only to come running right back. Curryville could be that restaurant for you.
The very modest looking Morningside establishment has built up a loyal and sizeable following of Southsiders, pleased to find such a consistently high standard of Indian fare available on Wynnum Road.
The chicken or vegetable chaat makes for a great entrée – two crisp samosas, smashed and topped with chopped red onion, coriander, home made tamarind sauce, yoghurt sauce, another sauce made of mint and coriander, and a chickpea broth ($12.95) – the zesty flavours whet the appetite for what's to come.
Curryville's mains are vibrant in flavour, with no muddy aromas or same-same tasting curries. We recommend the old standard, Chicken Tikka Masala ($23.20 with rice) as Curryville does an excellent version, and even hardened carnivores should enjoy the assorted Vegetable Jalfrezi ($22.95 with rice).
As a curry house, they are pretty flexible when it comes to modifications and adjustments to their dishes, but the Goat Karahai ($23.20 with rice) is not available in a mild version. Though the menu warns of its spiciness, the heat certainly doesn't come close to overshadowing the flavour. The restaurant also claims to have the hottest curry in Brisbane, the Chicken Hai Hai. This may be nothing more than marketing puff, but we have not yet dared to try it.
For something a bit different, Curryville also offers the 'Chef for your Table' experience. If you book a table for four or more, and request to be the 'Chef for your Table', then on the evening of your visit, you are invited into the kitchen to assist with the preparation of the mains.
