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

Absolutely love this restaurant. From the quaint and rustic interior to the outstanding service. This Indian restaurant has been in business for about 25 years and every time we visit the owners are there to greet and seat you. From the moment you walk in it feels like the authentic Indian culture. The spicy aromas are immediate. The restaurant overlooks... More

Curry original had very tasty, and not too heavy food. The Mango Lahsi were great, and the extensive dish choices were good too! Curry Original is hidden in between two other buildings, but once inside we had a great time!

A beautiful centuries old building a very good food. I did think that #.50 for a small bowl of rice was a little pricey as was $3.50 for a single naan bread. Overall the cost was not too bad and I would recommend this establishment.
