"Kurry Qulture has a beautiful back garden with elegant stone table tops and trees strung with decorative lights that sets the mood for unwinding and savoring their delicious fare on pleasant, warm summer nights."
"Walk through the arches to the sultry dining room, where you can sit at a candle-lit table (or on the back patio, weather-permitting) and dine on such appetizers as chicken bukhni kabab with pineapple chutney, masala fried calamari, and the standout KQ cauliflower with garlic tomato chutney."
