I haven’t been eating much Indian lately but a buddy of mine, who I haven’t seen in ages, wanted to go for a late lunch. Where to go? Well, I’ve known about Curry Corner for awhile but after being reminded about their cheap lunch special, we decided to check it out. Located in Riverbend Square, it’s by the Safeway and nearby Oliveto Trattoria. You guessed it, this one is hidden in the corner.
The daily lunch special (only one option) runs from 11am to 3pm for $10.99! Hello sweet deal. We came at 2pm on a holiday Monday and it was pretty much empty. Only one waiter was running the show – service is decent but he didn’t come back often to refill our waters. The inside is much more roomy than I anticipated. They even have a cozy little two spot by the front entrance if people watching all the Riverbendites grocery shopping tickles your fancy 😉
While I was waiting for my buddy to join, I took some photos of the regular menu.
Interesting that they have hakka noodles here. You don’t see that very often. If you want to see the regular menu, click here.

You get a lot of food so come hungry. Luckily, I follow my own advice and only ate a small breakfast so I was able to power through everything. N couldn’t finish his portion. Butter chicken, rice, yellow lentils, peas and a plain salad makes up the main platter. You also get a basket of naan. The butter chicken was good, not overly rich or creamy. The yellow lentils were tasty but they were lukewarm.
The naan was fresh and went perfectly with the butter chicken sauce. As always.
It’s hard to find a cheap spot like this in town so if you’re looking for a tasty west end lunch, give Curry Corner a go.
