flurry of curry

Curry House
123 S Onizuka St
Los Angeles, CA 90012
(213) 620-0855

price: $$
verdict: it's aight

there's some pretty incredible smells coming out of this place. the kind that makes you inhale deeply which then produces immediate salivation. it's totally pavlovian. then you get lulled in because you hunger now so you order an entree only to discover that these incredible smells are emitted from "ok" tasting food....a three stars kind of "ok" food. are you somewhat disappointed? i usually am, only because the smells and the taste don't match. how can something smell so delicious taste so average? don't get me wrong, it's fine, ok, alright, so-so tasting...what more can i say to describe OK FOOD?! i'm stretching here....

their curries aren't spicy at all even though they make it sound like it might be. that explains the bottles of tobasco sauce you see on each table. though i sound disillusioned, i'll still eat here like i do every once in a while when i forget that it serves just alright food. it's the incredible smells that gets me throught the front door...what a vicious cycle.
