I have been here with family, large groups and as a couple. The food is always outstanding, the service fabulous and it is the best indian restaurant in Perth. Booking is recommended, as it is always full when I have been.

Cannot fault the food whatsoever. From the homemade spicy onions and mango chutney, to the delicious starters and mouthwatering main courses with sides. I LOVE their garlic naan too! Well worth their AA rosettes! My husband said it was the best curry he's ever tasted! Vastly preferred to the standard muck in various shades of orange which is so commonplace.... More

As someone who has never liked the taste or smell of Indian cooking, I went here because my wife convinced me that the food here was authentic, proper Indian food totally different from the run of the mill meals served in thousands of Indian restaurants in the UK. I must say I was very pleasantly surprised, the food we had... More

Not a normal curry house, the staff are from gleneagles and make you feel very welcome while the chef makes you some amazing food. The menu is not big but this makes the food better as you will see cant wait to go back

Very nice Indian restaurant & not the usual Korma, masala dishes etc. This is al little bit more pricey than the normal but well worth it in my opinion. Main course starts at around £11.00, you have to add the rice to thast plus nan popodams etc. I went for the Murgh Makhani Masala which was very nice & not... More

Went here early on a Saturday night and were the first to arrive. We had a sharing starter to begin and everything was tasty. Waitress was very attentive noticing we never ate it all and asked it everything was okay and we explained it was just too much. Mains were equally good and the naan bread is probably the best...

First time I've been and took along my other half who is not the biggest Indian fan. We opted for Tapas and had 6 of the most delicious Indian dishes I have ever had.
