The place is just so so so quiet and the server just keeps on staring at your place. Food was too pricey and very little quantity. The food was just ok. Could well be avoided and many other better options in this range.

We found this gem tucked away just off the main drag. The menu looked amazing, and we weren't disappointed. First impressions were of attractive decor and friendly staff. The restaurant was probably 90% full when we arrived. Service was attentive and polite. The papadum to start was amazing - we could have easily eaten a dozen - delicate and light... More

If you're in Kingston and looking for Indian food, go no further than Curry Original. Located in the heart of downtown, beautifully decorated, and the food is authentic, delicious and the best curry for miles around, as well as their other traditional dishes. Staff are most kind and attentive and for those new to this cuisine, suggest you try a... More

Went for dinner Saturday night, reservations were for 6PM. Well greeted upon arrival, took us to our table immediately. Several people waited on us, great service. Food was out rather quickly, not surprisingly hot, just warm. Quality of food was great... In and out in 45 minutes... Very good..

We had a delicious dinner at Curry Original. We sampled 3 dishes: Lamb Biranyi, Curried vegetables & Curried chicken with cilantro. None of them disappointed. We also ordered their Naan which should not be missed. The service was pleasant & polite. The room was warm & inviting on a cold winter's night.

This was near our hotel and we love curry, so it was a natural choice. We ate on the balcony out back and it was lovely. There's a good selection of curries, and our meals were excellent.

What a fantastic curry house. Still fantastic after 11 years away. It was the first place we went to on our first night back. The staff are great - same manager - so kind and welcoming. Delicious food, quick service, good price. It is the best curry house in Kingston. No question whatsoever. Best dish: shrimp phatia

I love this restaurant and eat here at least every other week. The food is so fresh and prepared encompassing a wide variety of regional and traditional cuisines. The owner and his staff (most are family) are gracious and hospitable making each time I visit like I'm part of the family coming over for dinner. Prices are very reasonable, the... More
