We received a coupon for this place in the mail and decided to give it a shot, even though we didn't think it could live up to the Indian food we used to eat in our old town. We were pleasantly surprised! The location might be off-putting to some (strip mail near a gas station) but the interior is clean... More

I've been to 3 different Indian restaurants and none of them nailed the butter chicken like Kurry Xpress. Naan bread was great, we got the variety basket. Staff was very friendly. Place is really clean in comparison to other Indian restaurants. Definitely going back! More

Best Indian food in Des Moines. Period! Love this place. Excellent food and service. They took the time to walk me through the menu. Based on their recommendation, I tried the chicken chettinad and loved it. Spicy and delicious at the same time. Also had veg samosas and the flavor was right on. I will be back and I wish... More

a totally unpretentious strip mall location with a limited but very good lunch buffet -- eight items, 3 chicken and 3 vegetarian, naan and something I've forgotten. Everything is well and authentically spiced and replenished regularly. Frankly, I was surprised that the quality was as high as most Indian restaurants I've been to. Ambience is what you'd expect in a... More

Do not be put off by the location in a strip mall. Do not be put off by the order at the counter atmosphere. Do not be put off by the styrofoam dishes. Just try the good. You'll go back!

This small Indian kitchen located at 1679 86th Street in Clive offers some of the best South Indian cooking on the planet! (They also have another venue located at 108th and "Q" in Omaha). Their Butter Chicken Curry is a delightful blend of cinnamon, cardamon, ground almonds, ginger, red chili's, saffron, yogurt, tomato base...you get the drift (and I need... More
