Party of 4 visited March 2015 to celebrate a birthday. Venue and staff pleasant but food extremely poor. My chicken vindaloo can only be described as vile it was so salty to the extent I drank 3 litres of water that night through thirst. Poppadoms and naan bread both dry and tasteless plus onion bhaji starters stodgy and inedible.We ate... More

From the moment we walked in we were hit in the face by the beautiful smell of spices from the kitchen. Ambiance was very nice, service was excellent and the food was probably some of the best indian food we have tasted, Full of flavour with generous servings. If you like indian food this is a must.

We were able to get a last minute reservation, on a busy weekend. Staff were very friendly and the food was of a high standard. Service was attentive and dispite being last customers, we weren't rushed at the end of the night.

A recent stay on the Mountain created an opportunity to try the local Indian restaurant. Located at the end of the Gallery Walk, this unassuming little restaurant would have to be one of those unexpected surprises. A very simple, but well presented setting, in a relaxed atmosphere. The staff were very good with their service. And then our dishes were... More

Great food and lovely service. If your vegetarian you must go, not much else for the vegetarian at Mt Tamborine. I had The Masala Dosa, it was just perfect, my partner had the Vege Korma and was very happy. Great size portions. Was a full so better to book, think everyone knows this is the best place on the mountain.

We have been to this restaurant a few times now and it seems to get better every time. It would have to be the best Indian restaurant we have ever been to. Can't fault the staff or the food. Will be going back for more!

I went there during the Xmas period for an evening meal. We made a reservation via phone prior to going to the venue. On arrival I failed to explain I had made a reservation and we were placed in the middle of the restaurant. However after serving us cold water (immediately upon seating) the waitress realised that she had spoken... More

Coming from a multi cultural City of Darwin where flavours are many it was a breathtaking experience to visit an Indian Restaraunt in the small haven of Mt Tambourine where the staff know how to please and the ambiance is peaceful. Compliments to the Chef we were not disappointed even down to the surprise birthday desert which was also bliss.... More

The other reviews in Trip Advisor recommending this restaurant are correct. The restaurant serves excellent quality indian food rivalling any of the good quality Indian restaurants in the capital cities in Australia. In addition, the young local staff are fantastic - nothing over the top but understand good customer service. Note it is BYO so stock up before arrival as... More
