Three of us had different Thalis - each one was awesome. Great food at a very reasonable price. A great new option for the Palo Alto dining scene. I can't wait to go back!

I really enjoyed the playful nature of the food and the atmosphere of the restaurant was top-notch. The curries wrapped up in a tortilla was a fun take and a good way to introduce people to Indian food, thinking kids.

We had dinner last night and were underwhelmed by the lady at the counter. She was really bad with an attitude I haven't seen at a counter restaurant. The average bill per person without any drinks came to $14 for us which isn't cheap. They...More

Recently had the THE AMERICAN PUNJABI Thali - sadly the food was sub-par. As an Indian who has had food in many places across the US, it does not seem like Palo Alto has any good Indian food.

Cool decor; upbeat ambiance ; prompt service; clever menu names and descriptions. I liked my chicken tikka masala burrito roll and sexy fries . Can’t say I would drive miles for the food but a solid option for lunch in downtown PA

Owned by local duo, Akash and Rana Kapoor, Curry Up Now was inspired by street food popular in India and other parts of the world. Akash and Rana started Curry Up Now as the Bay Area's very first Indian Street Food truck and have now expanded to five food trucks, four brick & mortar restaurants and two craft cocktail bars named Mortar & Pestle. Items on the menu include the iconic Chicken Tikka Masala Burrito, Deconstructed Samosa, Naughty Naan and Sexy Fries, plus there's an extensive list of gluten free and vegan options. Feeling like a night cap? Head to Mortar & Pestle Bar with friends for handcrafted cocktails, using housemade syrups, or try one of the locally crafted brews on tap.
