The family and their team care so passionately. It's clear to see. From the welcome; the service; the fact they are always eager to chat - and learn more about their customers.

The Food was nice quality, not the best I've ever had but definitely better than some. Some interesting choices not usually seen on an Indian restaurant menu. Would return again if I was in Perth and fancied an Indian meal.

Smaller and more intimate than most other places in Perth, and the food is a bit less "run of the mill". Some lovely authentic dishes, full of fresh flavours. Naans and pakoras are a bit disappointing for my taste , but the mains are superb. Staff are friendly and helpful.

Just finished lunch and have to say one of the nicest Indian meals I have had in a while. Food very fresh and bursting with flavour, huge compliments to the chef. Staff out front very attentive and friendly, even background music was upbeat and jolly. Finished off with a chai tea, warm and comforting. Will definately be back.

Came here for the lunchtime tapas on valentines day. Absolutely delicious, every dish was tasty, great value as could not quite finish it all! Wine also complimented the food well, and the 'large' glass was very generous. Attentive and helpful staff and nice decor and ambience... Would love to return.
