They easily accommodated my request for a vegan dinner with a couple of choices. It was good, but a little on the spicy side even though I... More

The place is quirky. I've to admit that. But my one grouch is that in an attempt at fusion, the taste is kinda lost. I tried the burrito bowl and it was just about OK.

Sometimes fusin does go wrong, but with them, it was perfect. I had the thali and the portion size was perfect and so were the options for the main course.

Owned by local duo, Akash and Rana Kapoor, Curry Up Now was inspired by street food popular in India and other parts of the world. Akash and Rana started Curry Up Now as the Bay Area's very first Indian Street Food truck and have now expanded to five food trucks, four brick & mortar restaurants and two craft cocktail bars named Mortar & Pestle. Items on the menu include the iconic Chicken Tikka Masala Burrito, Deconstructed Samosa, Naughty Naan and Sexy Fries, plus there's an extensive list of gluten free and vegan options. Feeling like a night cap? Head to Mortar & Pestle Bar with friends for handcrafted cocktails, using housemade syrups, or try one of the locally crafted brews on tap.
