For the last four years,
Crystal Curry House has successfully satisfied the taste buds of Southeast
Queens true curry enthusiasts by making it its mission to serve all its dishes with
As a newly anointed
curry devotee, I had an insatiable craving for that spice and could not wait to see - for
myself - if the buzz surrounding Crystal Curry House was truly deserving.
The restaurant can be
best described as a small sports bar. There is a pool table by the front, a big screen
television mounted against the wall and a small bar by the counter. There are also seven
tables, which easily accommodate parties of four and two. At dinnertime, patrons are given
a choice of ordering from the Hot Roti, soup and dinner menus.
After much deliberation,
I ordered the Goat special. The dinner was served with a large plate of white rice, a side
dish of Goat with curry, a bowl of Dhall, and a small plate of salad (consisting of slices
of tomato and cucumbers). To drink, I ordered a glass of Cream Soda.
At first, I was
surprised by the quantity of food that was served; however all surprise soon faded with
the first smells of curry and I realized that this was a good deal.
So, if you ever find
yourself craving for a little curry, go immediately to Crystal Curry House and
I guarantee you that your taste buds will not be disappointed.
