Curry House is a Japanese restaurant that specializes in Japanese curry and spaghetti. So what’s different about Japanese curry? Well, Japanese curry has all the spices like Indian curry, but it’s more gravy-like, and slightly sweeter. It reminds me of Mexican molé.

We went on a Wednesday night, and had “our usual” dinners. Karen had the hamburger curry with white rice, while I had the Katsu chicken curry with the brown rice. Katsu chicken is a chicken filet that’s coated with panko breading, then deep fried to a golden crisp.
If I had to recommend a first timer dish, I would say this is my pick. The chicken is moist and crispy, but not overly fried. They add the filet on top of a bed of rice, and to the side of the rice and filet is the small lake of curry, where you control how much or little you wish to add to your food. Entrees are served with a house salad, served with a nice Japanese ginger dressing.
Katsu Chicken curry
The discount covered just the entrees, but the amount discounted covered my drink and the $1 brown rice up-charge, plus a little more. A wonderful meal, at a fair price.
