Authentic Indian Cuisine at Curry Express Davao

Are you looking for something new to your palate? I Love Davao recommends Curry Express, a hole-in-the-wall restaurant located at Circumferential Road, Davao City. Have a taste of their savory, hot and spicy authentic Indian dishes at very affordable prices.

Curry Express is relatively a small restaurant. There is nothing fancy about the place but if you like Indian dishes, you will not be disappointed. It serves not just curry but a whole lot of Indian dishes like masala, biryani, samosa, chapatti to name a few.

Davao Bloggers were lucky enough to be invited by the owner to try their best-sellers. Some of my favorites were their chicken curry, chili chicken and chicken 65. They’re just perfect for my taste buds. If you love spicy food, I’m sure you’ll love it too.

Here’s a glimpse of the food that we tried to give you an idea what Curry Express has in their menu.

Express Chicken Curry. Chicken Curry is ne of the most popular Indian dishes that Filipinos love. Their version is more on the hot & spicy side prepared with authentic Indian spices. Definitely a must-try when you eat at Curry Express. I love to pair it with their Chapati. It's a perfect match!

Chili Chicken. Another favorite dish at the restaurant is their Chili Chicken. It's basically India's version of sweet and spicy chicken with a little twist as there are other spices in it.

Chicken 65. If you love spicy food like myself, this one is for you. Otherwise, stay away from this dish. It's extra hot and spicy deep fried chicken. The dish originated from the south Indian city of Chennai. The name was derived from the year it was introduced which was in 1965. 

Shrimp Biryani. Made from a long grain Basmati rice, Curry Express' biryani is also a must-try if you want to taste a food which represents India. It's usually mixed with chicken but can also be mixed with seafood and other meat.

Shrimp Masala / Potato Masala . Masala is the Indian term for spice blend. The Shrimp Masala has the right amount of Indian spices which make it tastes good.The Potato Masala on the other hand was also cooked perfectly with the right tenderness and spiciness. 

Aloo Bonda. Aloo Bonda is a traditional Indian deep fried potato balls made with spicy potato mix. It's crispy on the outside and soft inside.

Chapati. Also known as roti, Chapati is an Indian flatbread. It's a common staple in South Asian countries of  India, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bangladesh and Pakistan. Again, pair this with chicken curry for a satisfying gastronomic experience.

  1. Mmmmmmm! This is making us really hungry! The shrimp biryani looks so mouthwatering!

  2. I had a very disappointing experience with this restaurant. After reading your blog, I invited my friend to go food-tripping with me at Curry Express after the Indak-Indak sa Kadalanan. We went there around 10:45am and were told by a young girl that they aren't done with cooking yet. We asked how much longer and were told to come back at 12nn but if we can wait, they're almost done with the chicken curry. I told her that we'll just come back. Chicken curry is very common so we decided to wait and hanged out at Seagreen Café. By 11:45 we went to Curry Express again and were told, this time by an old woman (presumably the chief cook) - looking rather "masungit that they only prepared chicken curry because "Mao ra man ang gusto kaunon sa mga Indian" (that's all the Indians want to eat). I asked what about Samosa and she asked the young lady if they still have it in the ref and was told none). I was surprised at the inconsistency - hanging a menu board with an extensive list of Indian food tapos chicken curry lang? I told Manang that if it's just chicken curry we can have it anywhere and I walked out fuming with my visitor friend trailing behind me. Sad but true.

  3. Sir, kindly delete above comment. I have settled the issue with the owner and clarifications have been made. I apologize for my irresponsible comment and should have called the owner's attention. The emotion was quite high when I posted so please forgive me for whatever adverse reaction this may have elicited.
