This is a small local Indian Restaurant in Redwood which has been there now for some years.
The restaurant is small but well set out and welcoming. Our waiter was very pleasant and efficient and we noticed while waiting for our order to be taken, a number of takeaway orders which must be a boost to a small restaurant with limited space.
We noticed the new round black tables which were a real improvement and I have to say that the chairs with the long backs were very comfortable and I would like some the same for our home. That good!!
Our meals were very good as always and the spice element was spot on to orders -The waiter was careful to brief us as to how to order our meals and spice heat. Well done Curry Time.
We found ourselves well satisfied after our mains were completed as the servings were generous.

My only gripe was that the wine glasses are very small and not really acceptable today- I would quite happily pay a little more for decent glasses that do justice to a good bottle - but I guess that that is a thing of mine that I want a genuine wine glass rather than a sherry glass size wine glass that allows my wine to breathe and do justice to the winemakers efforts.
Not a biggie but not hard to gradually fix either as a decent glass is cheap at Briscoes or in sales at Vino Fino in Durham Street South who have a great Glasses sale each year -The likes of Spegalau German I think and glasses are often available at good prices.
Currie Time is a wee gem out at Redwood and do try them out.
We will be back.

We had a lovely meal at Curry Time, the staff are always very friendly and were very accommodating toward our young children. Curry Time makes the best onion bahaji! The curries we choose were also delicious. Thanks Curry Time we will definitely return soon.

Took the kids out for a Saturday night dinner and we all loved it! The restaurant is small but bright with its yellow walls. Good prices for food but even better prices for drinks with spirits being $7 and beer n wine even cheaper it makes for an affordable and yummy dinner out. Service was great nothing to complain about at all. Will be back for sure! Thanks guys

As mentioned on my previous review the restaurant is in my view one of the best Indian food.
Plates come out hot is a big win and our last two visits here we were served by this wonderful bubbly female waitress whom I think is the owner or similar .
This is a must go to .

Great service and yummy food. Best of all we took our 1.5yo and 3yo the staff made us feel welcome and were happy to see the children. Sometimes dining with two young children we are often made to feel a nuisance but curry time made us feel very welcome and our children loved the food. Thank you

Arrived at 5.30 on Saturday - family or 4. Our 2 children were greeting with smiles and greetings, we felt welcome. Water delivered straight away to our table and drinks menu. Friendly staff, good service.
A great selection of vegetarian dishes too - so my wife was delighted. Good work Curry Time !

Party of four dining. Greeted by friendly smiles. Very attentive staff. Food was delivered to the table hot and in a timely manner.
Onion bhajis were crisp and delicious. Nan breads fluffy and tasty. Chicken Korma was creamy but with a good kick. Butter chicken ordered mild and my teenage son enjoyed. The chicken jalfrezi was beautifully spiced with lots of chicken and the lamb Rogan Josh was very tasty.. highly recommend this restaurant if you are looking for good food and friendly staff.

Our dinning experience at Curry Time was delightful to say the least! The simple restaurant, while possibly not winning any awards for cutting edge design, was clean, friendly and comfortable. The staff were incredibly professional and the service was fast, efficient, helpful and practiced.

Despite the above positives, they were not the highlight of the evening. That was hands down the delicious food. The menu had a great selection, but was not overwhelming. We ordered the Tandoor Mushrooms to start and while the menu said 8 mushrooms, the waitress must have passed on that we were a group of 3 and they brought 9 mushrooms instead. They have got to be one of the tastiest things I have eaten in my life. Highly recommended! We ordered 2 curries between us. The palak paneer and the anarri. The palak paneer was tasty and fresh but the star of the show was absolutely the anarri! You MUST try it if you go to this restaurant! Our naans were delicious and obviously made freshly in house. We completed the meal with the gulub jamuns which were tasty, novel and decedent.

If you're looking for delicious authentic Indian food at a good price then you will get more than you bargained for at Curry Time. For the extremely reasonable price, fantastic service and incredibly satisfying food, they really can't be beat! I will return!
