Burmese Curry Place Chicken and Prawn Curry. $10 lunch review

Burmese Curry

The simply named “Burmese Curry Place” in the bus interchange is a relatively new player in Civic. As we’ve recently learned that RiotACT is banned in Myanmar it seemed like a good time to give it a try.

They’ve got a simple, but charming layout and for $7 takeaway they load up rice with curry and have you on your way in no time flat.

I went for the “Chicken and Prawn Curry”.

It’s not the most appealing thing to look at. Nothing like the rich thick sauces of Indian curries.

But after a couple of mouthfulls?


It’s got some zing without being overbearing and the sweetness of the red pepper sets off the other salty flavours perfectly.

I was seriously impressed.

The 4 & 9 (fish balls with the vegetables – beans, potato and carrots strips) is pure heaven for $7. Love the thick spicy hot sauce and the cruch of the vegetables. It’s the best of all the dishes! The family running it are great too.

Got to agree with the review. It looks dogy and its cheap. I even love the number system, I’ll have a number 2 and 6 with rice…

Love the Egg curry as well and its got some spice/heat to it but just enough, without killing off the flavour.

Probably best I don’t work in Civic…..

Great relevant reviews for the more frugal of us here :). Thank-you!

I always try and go here whenever I’m in civic for lunch. Unpretentious with wholesome servings and fantastic tasting curries for a seriously good price.

It seems the whole family works the kitchen and the counter which adds a bit of charm too.
