Stephen, Ayesha Curry react to Rockets fans trolling her Houston restaurant

Ayesha Curry will soon open a new outpost of her International Smoke restaurants in Houston and Rockets fans have been having a field day trolling the eatery on Yelp by posting terrible reviews … even though it won’t open until next month.

Rockets fans have an axe to grind with Stephen Curry given how his Golden State Warriors squad eliminated their beloved team in a hard-fought Western Conference Finals. That said, posting negative reviews about his wife’s restaurant — one that not yet opened — arguably is a bit much.

Both Currys took to Twitter on Wednesday night to react to the snarky trolling by Rockets fans.

Ayesha Curry evidently opted to open a restaurant in Houston due to the city’s diversity.

“We knew targeted locations where we wanted to go, markets we wanted to be in,” said Curry’s business partner and chef Michael Mina, via Culture Map Houston. “Definitely was the diversity of the people that live here, because that’s what this menu is all about. The concept of the restaurant is based off that. Obviously, knowing that it’s a market we wanted to be in. We have other restaurants in a lot of cities. With International Smoke, it’s been really fun to say, what cities do we want to go to?

Despite the Rockets fans’ antics on Yelp, Ayesha Curry’s third International Smoke restaurant is set to open on July 5.
