The Curry Leaf is situated in an unassuming shopping center on Mission Oaks Boulevard, but its Indian cuisine is anything but ordinary. The decor is simple, with white tablecloths topped with brown butcher paper and quiet Indian music playing in the background. Owner Sandy Pujji is a visible fixture at the front of the house, greeting diners, serving food and making sure everyone at this Camarillo Indian restaruant is satisfied.
Regulars recommend the garlic cauliflower appetizer and the chicken tikka masala entree, as well as the garlic naan. Other highlights of the menu include the mulligatawny soup, described as having a tangy taste of lemon combined with the sweetness of apple and a curry kick. If you have room for dessert, try the gulab jamin, which are small Indian doughnuts in syrup made from butter, sugar, and cardamom.
The Curry Leaf is open Tuesday through Sunday. Its hours are 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. and 5:30 to 9:30 p.m.
