Food was good, but there were closer, better options for the same price so we only dined here once. Service was adequate and not terribly memorable good or bad. Decor was cute and inviting. BYO - Bring your own wine.

Wandering around looking for lunch options and, thankfully, came across this great find. The four of us enjoyed great service and quality Indian food (the butter chicken was especially tasty!). Highly recommend this not only for the value for money and great food but also the warm and friendly service experience. Well done Indra and Harpreet.

Really great tasty food, ordered a medium chicken tikka masala and a medium aaloo mattar with rice and it was all perfect! Along with brilliant service, nice friendly staff. Thank you for a lovely meal, we will be sure to come back if we are ever in town again.

I have been here before and enjoyed it. The restaurant is nothing special and very small but fine. There is an outdoor dining area as well. The food is still good and being a small restaurant the service is great. BYO.

The service was excellent however the food was far from what is expected in a resturant. I ordered beef curry. I am certain the vegetables were straight from a frozen packet (all systematically shaped) Hopefully they were Australian grown. My friend had the same deal with a vegetarian meal. This could be a great little eatery however the bar needs... More

Its not a good night when the naan is the highlight of your dinner :( My lamb korma was salty and uninspiring. The lamb was bland and clearly had not been cooked in the sauce. It tasted like it had been boiled on its own. The rice was watery (boiled) and over cooked. The spinach and cheese naan was nice.... More

I'm not sure if they were just having a bad night but the food was in edible! The curries were overly salty and the rice was soggy white rice, not basmati as you would expect. My husbands entrees were dry and cold, but edible. The serving sizes were smaller than you would expect for the price. We love our curry... More

Small restaurant but with the option to dine inside or outside. Quite authentic with Indian music playing. Food was great and well priced. Was BYO, but that was fine because of the liquor store just across the road. Service was outstanding. I have dined at many Indian restaurants at this one was up there. I will be back.They even took... More
