Curry Corner

Curry Corner is a longtime favorite in the heart of Sun Devil country. This blink-and-you’ll-miss-it Pakistani eatery on the light rail line near downtown Tempe is known and beloved for serving hearty plates in an approachable no-frills space on a college-friendly budget. Sure, there are the expected samosas, pakora, and hummus. But what keeps regulars flocking here are the six varieties of biryani served with lamb, goat, or seafood. The melt-in-your-mouth naan is a perennial crowd-pleaser. The plain or garlic naan serves as the ideal accompaniment to any dish, while the stuffed curry potato version is a hearty snack all on its own. Slow-cooked goat with lentils or beef shank that’s leisurely stewed overnight are homeland comfort food favorites. For a contemporary twist, start with a plate of crispy fries bathed in a spicy tikka masala sauce and finished with ranch dressing and cheese.
