I have eaten at numerous Indian restaurants over the years but this will stand out as being the best Indian food i have ever eaten. The freshly made chutney / pickles with Poppadoms or the Mixed Pakora starter selection were both particular highlights.

We stumbled across this Indian restaurant while visiting Perth. It was a wonderful find. Beautiful interior, attentive and friendly service, and delicious food. We chose the tapas option for lunch and chose 6 generously portioned dishes that gave us a great variety. Highly recommend it and if I'm ever in Perth again, will certainly return.

Ate here this evening with friends - first time despite being a Perth resident. The staff were lovely and very professional. The menu had a great choice - but thankfully not too extensive as some Indian restaurants have - though they do tapas and a pre theatre menu. It was so hard to choose. The food was stunning and I...

Got a surprise at the quality on offer here, across the board. Food was gorgeous, dessert divine mmmmmmmmmmmmm. Staff friendly and efficient. Premises and toilet immaculate. Loved the window into the kitchen, watching cheff prepare. And a great atmosphere. Good for a celebration, family meal or first date.
