Every bite tasted like a sip from the Dead Sea, salty salty salty feast. Ordered ever type of nan available, all as bad, flavourless and cardboard like as each other. Watery Curries all lacked spice, the lamb tasted suspiciously like beef and the dal tasted like nothing at all. Hot Rajmah curry was not cooked in many herbs and spices... More

I do have to confess that i think i have a love affair with their butter chicken i just love how creamy, rich, perfectly spiced sauce and the succulent chicken... i just love how the basmati rice which accompanies the butter chicken adds nice texture...

I've been coming to this curry place for about 10 years. When I first started coming, it was a bit of a hole-in-the-wall looking place. The decor has been updated recently so that dining in now is a more attractive option. The food's very tasty and the prices are decent. Great variety of vegetarian and non-vegetarian selections.

I usually order to go or have delivered (single pack $15) - choice of curry which includes naan, rice, Samosa, popadoms and a can of soda. It takes an hour from placing order via menulog or over the phone to get it delivered and turns up still warm. Worth it and delicious. However decided to take my cousin and dine... More

It was recommened by a local friend. I got mango lassi and 1 veg +2 non veg platter with rice and naan. Good money for a big lunch like this. Food was served hot enough but the lassi was bottled. Overall, good food good price and friendly staffs.

Found this restaurant by Google. It was not far from our Hotel so we decided to give it a go. Staff were excellent, the meal came in good time and was delicious. We ordered the $12 Chef special where you can get 2 meat and 1 veg, rice, naan bread. The serving was of good size and very tasty, much... More

Just one of those countless inner city "authentic" and forgettable places. There is absolutely nothing wrong with this place but on the other hand there is nothing outstanding about it. The decor is horrible, it looks very tired. The food selection is as generic as it gets and the taste is the same. On the other hand it offers excellent... More

I am beyond disappointed. Frankly, the worst curry I have ever eaten. Asked for super mild and was given an unbearably spicy meal. The breads were vile, the curries were ridiculously watery. I just literally have nothing good to say about my experience.

The Classic Curry Company is just a short walk away from Queen Vic Market - we came across this place after leaving the uber busy Night Markets, having tired of the queues - the place seemed to be really popular with the local student community, probably likely due to the good prices - I had a $10 veggie thali -...
