The Food was so delicious, and I was very impressed with everything that I had tried for the First time.

This place was amazing I loved it. It will be my go to when I'm in San Jose. The customer service is the best.

The best Indian food I've ever had, I'm not kidding. The butter paneer was perfect, the malai kofta was heavenly. Service was slightly lacking but the truly stunning food quality more than made up for it. I am floored, next time I'm in town this is my savior.

Delicious food and enough for a couple meals! It's a favorite weeknight dinner for us. All of the staff members we have encountered are friendly and helpful.

It's hard to find authentic north Indian flavors in the area. Most restaurants start out great, but fizzle after a few years. I was super impressed by the quality of food at Curry On. The best way to judge whether the chef is authentic is by these staple dishes from north Indian cuisine: tandoori naan, butter chicken and tandoori chicken. Curry On was spot on in all 3. Naan was done perfectly, the butter chicken tasted awesome with no sign of added food color, and the tandoori chicken was juicy and cooked to perfection. Will go back again and again for sure! 5* well deserved.

Lately I've been trying to save some money eating out so I've been taking some cash out to limit myself so that I force myself to look for some poppin' deals. Curry On's non-veggie and veggie lunch buffets everyday from 11:00 AM - 3:00 PM are WHERE IT'S AT! Especially if you're a student commuting between home and SJSU and you're looking for a quick bite in between bus rides. The lunch buffet is $8.99 and that includes a soft drink, water, naan, and dessert! Although the dishes available when I first went didn't look entirely appealing, they were SERIOUSLY DELICIOUS and FLAVORFUL AS HELL. The naan was super crispy and buttery and overall the service was amazing. This is definitely a go to that I'll be adding to my list in the Downtown SJ area that is vegetarian friendly, inexpensive, and delicious. A hearty meal that won't make you feel sluggish afterward.

This place is one of the best Indian restaurant in San Jose Downtown. They make the best chole Bature and the chaats are very delicious. A good place to relish yummy food and treat yourself with desi food. And and I would definitely appreciate the hospitality of amazing staff member and host Sanya at this place.:)

Yummy, hot and fresh. Plenty of food. Good price and friendly staff. I will probably be going here for lunch at least once a week.

Let's be honest. Almost all the North indian (punjabi) food we get here are made by South Indian chefs. No offense but it's unbelievably spicy and not so authentic. Original North Indian food is not spicy at all. It is flavorful and that is what we got here. Loved the food and authenticity of the taste. Not at all spicy which my 3 year old loved as well. Finally glad to find a place which is reasonable, delicious and authentic.

It's a great restaurant for having Indian cuisine. Food items are priced fairly well. You can eat here without worrying about your pocket.

Spring Rolls are good. Paneer Wraps are awesome. Samosa is not so good. If you are in downtown, you are good to go. Don't forget to have a glass of Tea (free - complementary).

Ehh, you get what you pay for. This isn't one of those "oh my gosh I found my new go to" kind of moments...sadly. This was our first time going here and unfortunately our last. We came for the veg/non-veg lunch buffet which is priced so well at $12 a person and that's what pulled us in today. The lunch hours are until 3:30pm, so be aware of that since someone posted that hours were until 5pm which is incorrect. We showed up around 3ish and we asked if they were still doing the lunch buffet. The employee working the register looked at his watch and said "no sorry". We were a little stunned, but we get it since we came maybe 20 minutes before it ended and the place was empty. We were also confused since their entire buffet area was still set up and had lots of food left over. None of it looked freshly cooked so we didn't complain and just decided to order off the menu. Later during our meal we noticed all the employees took food from the leftover buffet food and was eating it while we were there. Granted the place was empty except for me and my boyfriend, but really? Couldn't you guys take it to go or eat one by one on break to the side. They literally took advantage of not having any customers because literally all the employees were eating. They were even eating inside the kitchen...uh gross? Also unsanitary... I got the butter chicken with rice and my boyfriend got the paneer masala with roti. My food was delicious, but nothing special to make me come back. My boyfriend's food on the other hand was awful. I felt bad because he ate most of it since he didn't want to waste money, but boy was that a disappointment. I highly suggest staying away from the paneer masala. Overall it's really not that great of a place, which we were disappointed about since they had good reviews.

The food tastes good and the price is right, but I think the staff leaves something to be desired. The guy who served my food seemed confused the whole time. When I encountered RAW CHICKEN I showed it to a different staff member and suggested he let the kitchen know so they don't accidentally make someone sick. He left the tray of chicken in the buffet line, and didn't say a word to the large group of people who came in after I told him about it...

I was there on Tuesday right after workmy sons and I have eaten Indian Food from such restaurants as Amber Cafe Mountainview and The Mynt....so I was eager to give it a try on such short notice....Well they didn't disappoint it was one of the Best Dinners I've had ..we had the typical chicken tickka,and a eggplant curry both were Outstanding! They had a new girl that started that evening she was learning her dishes portions etc but cordial none the less. The reason for the lack of a star I'm on a budget single dad of 2 boys and even though Outstanding little over my budget will come again but I won't order double:D

When I first got inside, there was no one in front of us in line. 2 minutes after we ordered, a few people came in. We spent 40 minutes waiting for food (we chose take out instead of dine in). The food itself was really good (we got butter chicken, naan, and rice). It was a little pricey. Given the monetary and time expense, I don't think I'll come back unless I order in advance.

Came here for the lunch buffet. Everything was warm and although selection was limited, everything tasted amazing. Staff is super friendly and they serve free FRESH FLUFFY naan bread if you're having the buffet. The lunch buffet is only $12 and there's a discount for students. Need I say more.

I had a friend take me here for our lunch break and I'm glad she did! The place looks unassuming, but the food is no joke and at a pretty good price. We got the Aloo Tikki Chaat to share and we got Chicken Tikka Masala and Butter Chicken each. For each entree, we had a choice of naan or rice, so we got each and split them between us. I've never had Aloo Tikki Chaat, but damn it was soooo good! Great flavors and textures, we kept going back for more. Went well with their sauces. My Chicken Tikka was also excellent and the rice and naan were great. I only wish I had more naan for myself hah. They also had complimentary chai for customers which we kept going back for. I took some to go when we left. Overall, great place! Would go back for more.
