Ordered the vegetarian curry and the corn soup. Came in a big plate with pumpkin, bell peppers, egg plants, pickled peppers, potato salad and rice. Curry was tasty and the vegetables were excellent. I think they deep-fried them. The corn soup was very good. Its like corn puree with bits of corn in the bottom. You can also taste a hint of butter. We went in as it opened the doors. By time we sat down, the place was packed. It's not a big restaurant. No reservations but can be put on a wait list. Our waiter was kinda new and had a language barrier. I asked him a few times that I needed a fork and he didn't have a clue until i showed him a fork. Other than that, you should give this place a try. Just go early and you will get a table right away.

It's a cute little shop with some outstanding curry. The menu is small and for good reason, they do all their dishes really well. Definitely some of the best Japanese curry on the peninsula. Curry Hyuga's curry has a very complex flavor that leans a bit towards slightly acidic with strong onion tones.

If you love Japanese curry, this is seriously a good option to try out in Downtown Burlingame! You join a waitlist at the entrance of the store and they text you when your table is ready. On a Saturday at 1:00 PM, there was a 15-20 minute wait.I got the Karaage Curry and I loved the texture of the meat! The breading was gummy and the chicken was dark meat, so pretty fatty. Very juicy and they give a mayo sauce to dip it in. The potato salad was light and balanced the curry well. They give a good amount of rice and cabbage! The curry itself was VERY FLAVORFUL too. Very delicious and addicting, but wow... I think I got only 1/3 way through my plate before getting full!! BIG PORTIONS. Definitely great as leftovers later.

Got Katsu Chicken curry, and korrokke. Best part is definitely the katsu. Thick juicy pieces of katsu, can never go wrong. The curry is on the salty side. Corn Soup is thick and has some flavor, but I would skip it if you've ever had Curry House Corn pottage. You can personally choose your spice level based on the 5 different spices on the counter.

Excellent service and clean bathroom. Generous amount and nice ambience with tall roof and natural sunlight.Curry is too sour, shadowing the flavor. Sauce and soup are cold (maybe because of big plate design, and cold lettuce right next to the curry). Pork katsu is a bit tough, needs to be beaten more.Suggestions:1. Have spicy levels for customers to choose.2. Serve everything hotter.3. Have omu-rice option for each curry dish.4. This is personal, but try squeeze rice together for placement-firmer and chewier rice texture.Overall, because this is a curry-specific place, the curry needs to be better in order to convince customers to come back.

If I could use a "copy pasta" to describe what this restaurant is: "good shit go sHit thats some goodshit rightthere rightthere if i do ƽa so my self i say so thats what im talking about right there right there (chorus: ) mMMMM O0OOOOOOooo Good shit" I guess emojis aren't supported here, but google search "good shit copy pasta" to see what I was trying to refer to... Anyways, back to the review: Like others have already mentioned, this is a very solid Japanese curry joint out in Burlingame. When we arrived (~1:20pm), there weren't many people eating there. This kind of psyched me out because I would have assumed a busier restaurant for their ratings here on Yelp. I guess we missed the lunch hour? Maybe it was an off day? Perhaps even just lucking out? Either way we were seated and service was fairly fast. They took our orders (Two Katsu Curries and a Karaage appetizer) and the appetizer was served in less than 5 minutes. The curries came out in another 5 minutes. For the Katsu Curry, you can choose between pork or chicken. We tried both, and I preferred the chicken as it was much juicier, and this was also mentioned by the waitress who was taking care of us that day. Maybe it was me and that I haven't had Japanese curry in a restaurant setting in awhile, but the consistency was very liquid-y. I am used to more thicker consistencies, but overall it wasn't bad, and it was still very flavorful. It comes with a scoop of potato salad which looked nice, but didn't end up tasting anything I would care for. As someone located in the South Bay, it sucks to know I've gotta drive this far out to get some decent Japanese curry. The best one in the South Bay currently is Demiya imho, but Demiya's customer service and overall speed is abysmal.

Very solid Japanese curry spot! It is one of my most frequently visited post-badminton spots as there are not a lot of places that welcome groups of 6+ after 9pm! I usually get the pork katsu curry which is delicious. Prices are reasonable and portion sizes are huge - I always am left with lunch leftovers for the next day. Service is great - we have a friend who is vegan (they have some vegetarian options but apparently no vegan) and they make a stir fry vegetable with rice dish just for him! There's street parking in the area which is free after 6pm (and all day on Sunday)!

Stopped in here on a whim while exploring Burlingame -- didn't realize how much of a gem it was! We were seated immediately on a Friday night around 6 pm. I noticed everyone dining around us having long conversations and so did we; I don't think any of us ever felt rushed despite the limited seating. Service was very friendly and efficient, and our food came out fast and steaming! I ordered the Chicken Curry with added cheese. Portion was perfect. I was able to take some back home after getting full quickly! My boyfriend ordered the Tonkatsu Curry, which he loved and rated a 10/10. I look forward to coming back!

Cute spot for a casual dinner with a niche offering for the area. The service was 5 stars and food was good! This is a great comfort food kind of place for a chilly night. When went as a group of 5 for dinner on a Saturday night. Getting seating was relatively quick. If you sit by the front door it can be kind of chilly, beware!

5 stars!! I love their omurice, Japanese omelette rice. Short grained white rice wrapped in a gooey layer of egg, came with Japanese curry sauce. Must get the combo with their corn soup, delicious! Very reasonable price too!

This curry spot reminded me of being in DT Tokyo. Which I really miss so much. They staff here greeted us with a warm welcome. They were able to sit us quickly which was good. Once we sat down the place filled up! We ordered the chIcken katsu and chicken Karaage curry. The curry had soooooo much flavor. The curry is a tad thin. The potato Salad was a little warm and I love mine cold. Other than that I really like this place. I definitely plan on coming back again!!!

TL;DR: If you're craving Japanese curry, you can't go wrong with Curry Hyuga. In this day and age where "Support Local" has become a new catchphrase like "Go Green" or "Save The Children", it can be difficult separating out the good from the bad, or in this case, the truly local enterprises from the large corporations masquerading as local entities. Well, I guess that's what we're here to do and yes, Curry Hyuga very much fits the bill of your local restaurant with that warm, neighborhood fill to it. Located in the Broadway side of Burlingame downtown, parking may not be the most straightforward though my tip is typical: i) go on one of the smaller side streets and ii) go a little further from the main busy area. Or you could also take the Caltrain by the side on weekends. The restaurant itself, while small, utilizes its space very well and the interior looks well-lit, clean, with the seats both spacious and cozy at the same time. It's a little like a diner, but modeled for the 21st century. The opening hours are great also, especially in the Bay Area where restaurants typically close at 8pm and even Subways close at 9. This place stays open until 10pm, so definitely keep it in mind if you're looking for a supper. The food itself is wholesome, and the katsu is a good combination of meat and the crispy coating. It's also pretty consistent across all the pieces, no piece having too much meat or coating. The sides that come with the curry, the rice, cabbage, pickles and potato salad are also pretty good compliments and balances the spice of the curry. The menu itself is pretty simple, and I've grown to really like these restaurants with simple menus since it makes decisions a lot easier. The price is also pretty amazing, especially with the inflation that's going on and a plate of curry currently runs just under $15 (before tax and tip). Oh, and as a bonus point, they do have spontaneous activities also, like a recent fundraising activity for Ukraine, that shows that they're more than just serving food. All in all, solid place, so definitely check it out if you're in the area and looking for some curry!

I often crave curry and there's not a lot in the Bay Area, or at least around where I live. I heard about this place through social media and immediately had to come try. We came by after a hike at Mills Canyon Park around noon and there were just about two tables left before they were full so we were pretty lucky with timing. They were quite busy with takeout though so service was a bit slow. We ordered #2 Pork Katsu Curry ($14.50), #3 Karaage Curry ($14.50), and Yuzu Lemonade ($2). I was pretty impressed by the prices. It's so rare to find meals less than $20 and drinks less than $5 nowadays. The meal was definitely super filling so don't order too much. The flavor of the curry, potato salad, and pickles were perfect! The only thing is that I wish they provided more fukujin pickles. It is $2 extra if you want more. You can pass on the lemonade. It was too sweet for me that I added water to help balance it out. I also couldn't taste much of the Yuzu. For it to cost $2, something tells me it might have some kind of a powder mix. I would say if you are craving curry, this is definitely the spot to be! I was very impressed. Extra points for cleanliness!

Curry Hyuga offers one of the best Japanese curries I've had in the Bay Area at a very reasonable price. I went with the Menchi Katsu curry, while my partner got the tonkatsu curry. Both dishes came out quickly and was made fresh to order. We also got an appetizer of Karaage, and it was the perfect combination of tender, juicy, and crispy. Pros: Large portion sizes at an extremely reasonable price. Everything was fried to order and came out piping hot. Karaage is a must try! Croquettes are also available as a side item, but not specifically listed on the menu. Cons: None!
