I’ve tried their food trucks since I saw them back 6 or 7 years ago. Tried their restaurant a few times now since I haven’t seen their food truck lately. Taste hasn’t changed but prices sure have raised steadily. My favorite is their CTM, Chicken Tikka Masala burrito.

This place has a bar at the back which i like. Their cocktails are pretty good as well. Ive tried their ambikas cove and away from the bay cocktails and they are pretty awesome. They also have a TV at the bar area where you can watch the games. You can also order indian appetizers from the front to go with your drinks.

Of all the Curry Up Now location, this is my favorite one.

1) They're attached to my favorite watering hole.
2) They serve the best Deconstructed Samosa.
3) They give me hella sauce because I'm a saucey type of person.

I hope you give this tasty place a try and join me next door for some drinks. Cheers!

If you've never had Indian food, Curry Up Now is the gateway drug. It takes food that you're already comfortable with(ex: burgers, burritos, etc.), and adds curry to it.
If you wanna spice things up a bit, give it a shot.

Indian "fusion" fast food. Decent food, lots of options and a great idea for a trendy Indian restaurant

Food is a little hit or miss. The samosas were fantastic. The tikka masala burrito was just ok on both times I've tried it.

I do not want to talk about this place. I don't not want to review it. I don't want to tell people about it. I don't want anyone getting in the way of my food.

Perhaps I am feeling a little generous today.

Their curry mobile really should be no strangers to anyone working in the city. Lately they have even extended their service all the way to Sunnyvale and San Jose! I am starting to feel some street food love here in the South Bay. What made it even more awesome is that they now have this permanent restaurant location with ample of seats and an extended menu. I could actually come here for lunch and dinner on the weekend!

Tikka Masala Burrito, Deconstructed Samosa, Kathi Roll.... all freshly made and super delicious. Make it a combo and add some mango lassi and samosa.

this place kind of reminded me of chipotle but indian style haha

My Indian friends took me here when I was visiting NorCal. Whatever I got was so good! I really wish they had this near my area...my parents would love this place. The price is very reasonable. You HAVE to get their Mango Lassi!!!

I had seen their menu online a while back, and the one item I wanted to try was their chicken tikka masala burrito. This was my first time trying their food, not to mention the first time trying Indian food...ever. They have both a regular and spicy version. So glad I opted for the regular. It already has a good amount of kick in it, trust me! They don't skimp on the flavor or the filling, as there were nice chunks of chicken intertwined throughout the burrito. Consider me full, happy, and impressed!

The brick-and-mortar locations of a popular Bay area food truck trio, Curry Up Now is awesome. The interior feels like a Bollywood version of a Japanese manga comic book, and the menu just pops with fusion flavor and traditional tastes like thali set meals. Don't miss getting the sexy fries - chewy sweet potato fries topped with chicken tikka masala. Rock on!

I've been here a few times, and I've never been totally blown away by anything. The best things they serve are the mini samosas! They're so cute! If they were sold separately, I'd stop by just for an order of those with some chutney, but they only come with certain dishes. The big samosas are okay, but I've had some that were unpleasantly doughy.

Here you are looking at one of the 7x7 100 things to eat before you die Tika masala burrito from Curry Up Now Truck. It is a tasty mixture of rice, chickpea, chicken and SPICY curry sauce! I love it spicy, but you have to have some serious tolerance for this one. There is also a strong onion and garlic taste that is hard to shake off, so get some mint after for sure! It was good, but I could certainly die without it.
