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

I've eaten here a few times and it's always been delicious. I recently ordered takeaway and it was equally as good. The Naan bread is wonderful. The curries have a beautiful fresh flavour and are not stodgy at all, as some are in inferior Indian restaurants.

My husband and I chose to eat here as a last minute idea. It was just after 5pm when we arrived as a lady was coming out with a takeaway so we were cheeky and asked was she a local and what was the food like. She confirmed that she ate here often and the food was very good. We... More

We asked for our meals to be medium heat which is exactly what we got. Choices of mild, medium and hot were offered which I really appreciated. This is a... More

This is one of our favourite places to eat on Mount Tamborine. The service is friendly and the subtle warm lighting give it a lovely atmosphere on a cold night. The food is always delicious. We have been as a couple, with friends and with family. We always take our visitors here!

We were up on holiday and our hosts recommended trying out this restaurant. We ate here on our first night and it was so good that when we walked past on our second night we couldn’t go past it! We had three courses both nights and everything we tried was delicious, including the masala chai tea. The textures and flavours... More
