The best Indian I have had in Sydney!

My boyfriend and I went for a meal on Friday night. After having a few disappointing Indians in Sydney it was great to find this place. The service was good, and we were able to take our own wine. Would highly recommend the Masala Dosa and Butter Paneer Masala! Will be returning!

After a long day took a short stroll to this delightful restaurant. To be honest from outside it doesn't look anything special. However once you step inside the door your whole opinion of this restaurant will change. From the music lighting and delicious menu. Was just what I needed after a long day

Great indian curries served in a out of context building. Staff are friendly and helpful, food is great but the decor is more set for romantic candlelight dinners rather than curry restaurant.

Extensive menu, great vegetarian options. Plenty of spice if that's what you want but lots of milder options to choose from. Really nice waiters and waitresses and lovely interior. It is my favourite Indian in Sydney!

The setting is great, it's like being in an old wine cellar. All began well with us being seated at our table but then the staff seemed to disappear for ages. Eventually they took our order. There were 3 of us and 2 of the mains arrived (albeit a bit on the lukewarm side but tasty enough) then it took... More

My husband and I have been to this restaurant a few times and have always had great service and the food has always been fantastic. We had dinner here again tonight and again fantastic food and friendly service. Best Indian in Sydney.

If you are an Indian please don't go to this restaurant, you are so looked down in front of Whites and you are treated differently. Vinay may be you should send your staff to Thousand Spices in homebush and I am sure your staff will learn a lot from them. The manager sounds so rude, may be a few smiles... More

I would say this is one of the top Indian Restaurants I have been to, the service does need a bit of improving though. There were 10 of us and we decided to go for the special unlimited food for $33.90 (please check their website for conditions). This gave us the opportunity to try things on the menu that I've...
