I love the House of Curries. It is deeply unpretentious, welcoming, and cheerful. The vegetarian dishes are very good, and the baingan bharta is the best I've ever eaten (and I've ordered it in Indian restaurants all over Berkeley, New York, and from John o'Groats to London in the UK. The roti and naan are excellent. My husband used to... More

Love this place. We eat here with a dear friends originally from India and they turned us on to House of Curries. Casual and inexpensive, the 4 of us shared 5 dishes and the total bill was under $60.00 (and one was the Salmon which was cooked perfectly). Great vegetarian selections.

Having visited India five times and particularly enjoyed the cuisine, we tend to favor Indian restaurants. Although we prefer buffet style (not offered here) we made do by ordering chicken tika masala, lamb korma, bindi, nan and raita so that we could have choices. The sauce for the chicken and lamb dishes was quite similar, but both were quite good.... More

I visited from the UK and read that this was voted best curry house in California. Unfortunately for us this could not have been further from the truth. I live in a UK city renowned for its curries and this experience was terrible from start to end. Service was very poor-the waiter literally dumped our food on the table. We... More

I visited with my family and we tried a few vegetarian dishes. It was hot inside and a pleasant night, so we sat on the front porch, which is charming and a lot of fun on a warm Berkeley night. We liked our food, which we ordered medium spicy, and which came out FAST. Not the best Indian food I've... More

Good lunch specials. Low prices. Generous portions. Inattentive service. Bland naan. We stopped here for a quick lunch and enjoyed a tasty, leisurely meal in a laid back environment. Perhaps because I requested mild, my vegetable curry was not particularly flavorful but it was good enough. Palak paneer and channa masala were great. Chicken tikka masala was tasty but chicken...

Excellent vegetarian options, great price, 8.5/10 naan, free chai, colorful and lively space, super friendly staff, excellent location, ultra relaxed and casual environment that is good for families and kids. Still my favorite restaurant in Rockridge.

Great food, good service and priced right. Feels like home. I have had Indian food all over the world but nothing tastes like the food here.

The service was good, the food was good, the bathrooms were DISGUSTING. Our group ordered chicken tiki masala, lamb tiki masala,rice, mozzerella naan, garlic naan, and potato naan. I have had better Indian food in the past, however, this was decent. I loved the fact that the tea was free with the meal. What I absolutely hated the dirty, disgusting... More
