A quick place to grab... 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

My mom and I went to Curry Up Now. It was my first time there and I thoroughly enjoyed the food there. The samosas and chicken tikka masala were great. the tamarind and cilantro perfectly accompanied the samosas. I want to return and I recommend Curry Up Now!

They easily accommodated my request for a vegan dinner with a couple of choices. It was good, but a little on the spicy side even though I... More

Super tasty with lots of choices! Also great if you're gluten free with lots of available options. Makes for easy delivery too.

You order at the counter and the food is brought to your table. Food came out quickly and was enjoyable.

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.
