|Curry Curry in Camberwell|
When we finally trekked there, the place was empty, but as it should be at 5.30pm, right on opening time (hey, we were hungry!). The sweet smile on the hostess as we walked in made us feel comfortable, and she sat us near the front window of the restaurant.
I'll give them an "A" for effort in the decor department; however out-dated the ornaments were (bless that poor thing on the ceiling that was once a chandelier!), it appears as though, at one point in time, a fair effort was put into fitting this place out. A blue glowing bar, window to the kitchen (with a wave from the chef! Hoorooo!), and a very clean dining area, make the atmosphere - in my opinion - a whole lot better than most of their peers.
Okay, less babble, more talk of food.
No alcohol tonight, just a carafe of water. Standard poppadoms and mint yogurt were presented, and then our starters of mixed vegetable pakoras (4pcs/$7.00) arrived. They were okay, one of those little critters was way overcooked, making it very dry, but the other three were fine - we ate, all gone. What's next...
Shawn's part of this review is really easy: he ordered the beef Rogan Josh ($14.00), the meat was tender by his account, and the curry sauce had a lovely full flavour. Happy man, quiet and eating with a smile :)

Overall, Curry Curry is a nice little Indian restaurant, and despite the singular blitzed-out pakora and my high Paneer Makhani expectations not being totally met, I'd honestly go back again. If you're in the Camberwell area and have the hankering for some Indian fare, give them a go. :)
