Ali Curry House

Ali Curry House is an extremely average Portuguese/Macanese restaurant that also dabbles in other international fare such as spaghetti, curry and laksa.  I don’t know if they’re trying to go more fusion by adding an Asian slant into traditional local dishes, but whatever they’re doing isn’t working.

The African Chicken ($78) was unlike any other African Chicken I’ve ever had, so much so that I’m not even sure it was African Chicken.  Far too spicy, it was more akin to an Indian curry, and not a particularly good one at that.

The Minchi ($78) was even worse, a sad collection of dry burnt pieces of meat mixed with potatoes, a severe mangling of one of my favorite Macanese dishes.

At least I had better luck with the starters.  Both the Seafood Soup ($28) and Smoked Salmon Salad ($78) were well put together and tasty, so my dinner there wasn’t a total wash.

As for other positives, prices are extremely good with most mains in the $78 to $98 range, while the location is very nice, on the beautiful Avenida de Republica on the southern tip of the Macau Peninsula.

Quite a few tables are outside as well, a welcome change in a city that doesn’t have enough outdoor seating, particularly in areas close to the Historic Centre.

It’s just a shame that the food tops out at decent and nothing more.  If you’re in this part of town and want to eat, a much better option is to try Henri’s Galley located right next door.
