Really strange - had loads of takeaways and they've ways been great. Slightly more expensive than others but you don't mind when the food is great. Bought a group on - really confusing booking, my name wasn't even taken etc. Confusion continued when we got there over the three starters - basically you don't get a choice. How it was... More

Worst dining experience ever!! My fiance and I bought a Groupon voucher for The Clove and were looking forward to trying it. (yes, we had a deal but we still had to pay for the voucher and it wasn't a cheap one!). We went there last night and the service was absolutely appalling. The staff were extremely arrogant and rude.... More

The food was very disappointing after we had our first and last meal there. We had a take-away mixed entree which was very ordinary. Then we had 3 different main meals and they were mostly sauce and very little protein or vegetables in all 3 dishes. They nearly all tasted the same. In addition, my husband was up most of... More

I believe that this is the Clove Indian Restaurant which has now moved to Beach Street, Coogee giving us one of the best Indian restaurants in the area. I have been on four occasions recently .. three times with a group of friends and once just with my husband and the food has been excellent every time. Obviously, the more... More

I ordered take away using an online coupon. The staff member who answered the phone was very polite and thorough in taking down the order which included entree, main, breads and dessert. My order was checked before I left the restaurant and double bagged. All the food was absolutely delicious. Fresh. Tasty. Filling. What a great way to sample the... More

Not a bad eat. Service was prompt and freindly. They also accommodated my friend whose dish was too spicy for his taste. Food was very tasty, classic Indian dishes. Nothing special but for the price, it was good value for money. Great location and warm homely ambience.

We ordered the lamb Balti, which tasted good but the lamb was a lil over cooked, and the beef Biriyani, which also tasted good but was overcooked. We... More

I went on a Saturday night and there were only two people serving tables. The service was very slow, with long waits. It didn't bother me because I was not in a hurry. The food was good, not the nest I've ever had but certainly good.

Absolutely superb! The Pistachio Chicken is nothing short of stunning. All of our 4 meals were excellent; the service was friendly and attentive; the prices are most reasonable and I'd have to say that it's one of the nicest meals I've ever eaten! Don't be fooled by the seemingly small-sized serving dishes - we struggled to finish these amazing meals.... More
