FACT | Food Holidays don’t just stop at Thanksgiving for Foodies. We celebrate anything that our tastebuds desire whether it is on the calendar or not!
However, when I saw that National Day Calendar listed January 12 as Curried Chicken Day I had one place in mind to go and enjoy curry chicken. That place is Curry in a Hurry!
Located in Morgan Street Food Hall, which recently nominated for Best New Food Hall by USA Today, Curry in a Hurry transports customers to India right here in downtown Raleigh. Owned by Chef Alaksha Surt, this restaurant features award winning, authentic Indian Food dishes using recipes influenced by her mom and grandmother. You can taste her passion for cooking in every spicy, flavorful bite!
Her food truck, which is the only Indian Food Truck in our area, has been a regional fixture in and beyond the Triangle for some time. Last year she decided to open a brick and mortar location and become the only Indian restaurant in the popular Morgan Street Food Hall. Foodies from near and far flock here to get a taste of her unique flavors. Some dishes are mild and some dishes have that kick that only authentic curry can deliver.
Recently my husband and I enjoyed a spicy lunch date at Curry in A Hurry. We learned that Chef Alaksha Surt hails from Bangalore, India and combines authentic Indian spices with fresh, quality ingredients to cook her curry dishes. We ordered the Butter Chicken, their signature dish, and Green Chicken Curry.
Curry in a Hurry’s Butter Chicken
The Butter Chicken was described to us as the starter dish for those unfamiliar with curry. The flavorful chicken is so tender and melts in your mouth like butter. It’s mild spice makes it a great introduction to Indian cuisine. We enjoyed every tasty bite of this dish.
Curry in a Hurry’s Green Curry Chicken
Love a little spice in your life? Then the Green Curry Chicken is your dish. For those of us who enjoy Thai food, you will enjoy how Curry in a Hurry prepares theirs. From the rice, to the green curry sauce the quality of the fresh ingredients does not get lost.
Head to Curry in a Hurry to enjoy a taste of India (and Thailand too) with the amazing flavors and spice used in their curry chicken dishes. They also offer vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options. Come try for yourself and you too will be back again and again to celebrate #curriedchickenday anyday!
SobeSavvy Tip: Right across from Curry in a Hurry is a great place to enjoy a sweet ice cream treat. Raleigh Rolls uses fresh ingredients to make ice cream before your eyes! This unique and delicious Thai ice cream is the perfect dessert after having the Green Curry Chicken, another Thai fave.

I’ve got to find a good Indian spot on the Southside of Atlanta.Taking suggestions! I’m always looking for new spots to try that I don’t have to drive across town to get to.
I LOVE curry but my fave Indian dish is Tika Masala. I’ll have to bookmark this for the next time I’m in Raleigh.
When I ate meat I sure did love some curry chicken! This looks amazing & I bet it tastes even better! Yasss yum!
Mouth watering! I need more information about a national food celebration day calendar😂 This place will definitely be on my places to eat, when I come to town.
These dishes look very good, I like curry chicken and haven’t been to a Indian restaurant in a while. I keep hearing about rolled ice cream but have never tasted it before. I def want to try, I love ice cream.
Yea, it is really good
This look amazing. Curry is one of my favorites and the photos make the food look delicious. Thank you for the recommendation.
After seeing these pictures on your facebook page, I tried to make my entire family some curried spicey rice. It was so delicious, there were no leftovers.
This looks so delicious! I need to try out that food hall the next time I visit home.
I love a good curry and this food looks delish. i don’t eat chicken but I love that they have a full and varied menu.
I love rolled ice cream. I haven’t had any in awhile though, but now I want some.
Hmmm… I love all types of curry! We make curry at home so I haven’t really eaten out for it much. But Curry in a Hurry looks delicious.
This food looks so yummy! I would totally give it a try. I have never had indian food before but have been wanting to try it.
I’m always lookinng for a new resturant to try. This is perfect, because I just got my boyfriend into Indian food.
