Sumatra Curry Kyōeidō Reviews

Sumatra Curry Kyōeidō Google Average Rating



I am fairly certain that Curry in Sumatra does not taste like this. Pleasant 80s decor and jazz on the radio.

Seems pork curry is most popular here, but the beef is also recommended. I got the hayashi beef expecting it to be the "best" as it was most expensive.

It's basically a dark gravy with onions and mushrooms that tastes like something you'd get out of one of those soup packets in an American supermarket. The ingredients are as commodity as you can get. I don't mean that in a bad way really! It's just what it is.

There isn't really any spice, but a degree of bitterness and sweetness that I suspect is from how they cook the onion. The acid and sugar from the (also commodity) red pickles definitely enhances the flavor.


The restaurant, established in 1924, specializes in Sumatra curry tailored to the Japanese taste. The recipe was passed down by Mr. Tomojiro Ito, a trade contributor, and features a black curry sauce made from simmered vegetables, meat, and a blend of spices. Their curry menu includes various options like pork, chicken, shrimp, beef, and beef tongue, served with fluffy Koshihikari rice. A winter specialty is the Baked Apple, available from October to April.
