Curry House in Brookline Is Being Reborn as Jo's Indian Kitchen in Cambridge's Porter Square

Early this year, it was reported that an Indian restaurant in Brookline has closed down. Now we have learned that it is returning with a new name and a new space in Cambridge.

According to an email sent to us, Curry House is relocating to Porter Square as Jo's Indian Kitchen, with the new spot being run by the same family and including recipes mostly from the now-retired owner of Curry House along with some recipes from his wife. We have been told that the food will mostly be North Indian although a few South Indian dishes will be offered as well, and that the plan is to open during the first week of July.

An earlier article here had mentioned that Jo's Indian Kitchen was indeed coming to Porter Square, taking over the space that had been home to Passage to India which now resides at Cambridge Crossing in East Cambridge.

The address for Jo's Indian Kitchen is 1900 Massachusetts Avenue. Cambridge, MA, 02140. Its website can be found at

[August 17 update: A message sent to us indicates that Jo's Indian Kitchen plans to open on Friday. August 19.]
