Vegetarian buffet and a movie...food was good. Not great but I'm giving it a 4 cos I'm a generous soul and the experience is everything sometimes. Loved the lounge all over the floor movie theatre. We saw The Lunch Box and it was a perfect fit. Great lazy night dining experience.

We had Living Social vouchers for dinner and movie. I had made booking one week prior on the website and quoted our voucher number and received a confirmation. Once we got there it seemed as though they didn't have mu booking reserved. They kind of had to scramble around to organise a table of four. The buffet is nothing special.... More

This is a lovely little Indian-type restaurant in Darlinghurst area. There is some outdoor seating. You can, if you want, get dinner and a movie(first run movies). The buffet is quite large, the food is good- vegetarian/vegan, no onions, mushrooms or garlic. It is run by the Hare Krishna group, although the only indication of this is a few pamphlets... More

Limited range of food, about toast and well-cooked, was expecting more Rotti, tandoori etc rather than quinoa salad, wedges and soup though a couple of more traditional Indian dishes and rice. Popular venue and pleasant staff.

Went there with 3 friends last night for dinner after making a reservation early in the day. We were led to a table in the farthest and dingiest corner of the restaurant, while there were only 2 other tables occupied at that time. Not the ones to easily write off a place, we managed to squeeze in and settle down.... More

We booked a table for 8 people, it worked out very well. It was all-you-can eat, so you could choose your food at the buffet. The food is all vegeterian, very tasty and with many different flavors. Afterwards we had tickets for the cinema upstairs. It is quite small and you lie on mattresses to watch the movie, which is... More
