We had dinner last night and were underwhelmed by the lady at the counter. She was really bad with an attitude I haven't seen at a counter restaurant. The average bill per person without any drinks came to $14 for us which isn't cheap. They...More

Recently had the THE AMERICAN PUNJABI Thali - sadly the food was sub-par. As an Indian who has had food in many places across the US, it does not seem like Palo Alto has any good Indian food.

Cool decor; upbeat ambiance ; prompt service; clever menu names and descriptions. I liked my chicken tikka masala burrito roll and sexy fries . Can’t say I would drive miles for the food but a solid option for lunch in downtown PA

I love this type of food. They have taken Indian food and made it modern with a cool kind of Mexican twist. Maybe a little expensive and the servings aren't huge, but everything is expensive in the area. I had the deconstructed samosa which was...More

Being an Indian did not know what to expect from this fusion kitchen. Was pleasantly surprised by creations like 'sexy fries' and so many other mix-ups. Everything tastes great & the prices are reasonable. Have visited several times after first visit. Staff very courteous too

Owned by local duo, Akash and Rana Kapoor, Curry Up Now was inspired by street food popular in India and other parts of the world. Akash and Rana started Curry Up Now as the Bay Area's very first Indian Street Food truck and have now expanded to five food trucks, four brick & mortar restaurants and two craft cocktail bars named Mortar & Pestle. Items on the menu include the iconic Chicken Tikka Masala Burrito, Deconstructed Samosa, Naughty Naan and Sexy Fries, plus there's an extensive list of gluten free and vegan options. Feeling like a night cap? Head to Mortar & Pestle Bar with friends for handcrafted cocktails, using housemade syrups, or try one of the locally crafted brews on tap.
