The waiters were very attentive without being annoying and everything was delicious. This is not the cheapest Indian restaurant but I'm happy... More

I was very pleasantly surprised by this little gem of a restaurant. We went here because it was next to the hotel and one of the few places open late but the food was absolutely outstanding. Highly recommend.

It was the end of the night. Food was not up to our usual standard. Really close to the hotel though. We both ordered different dishes but both looked and tasted the same!

I agree with other reviewers the staff are extremely polite and offer good service but the food was very ordinary. We started with the shared mixed platter, three of... More

One of the better Indian restaurants we have visited. Very good service and food was delicious. On a personal not could have been a bit hotter (spice wise) but perhaps our aging palates need extra heat and we need to get brave and order hot instead of medium! :D

I often visit this resturant when in Townsville for work and the food is lovely, service friendly and helpful and location overlooking the water very pleasant. If you want a nice curry it is worth seeking this resturant out.

This is a great meal, lovely Indian food and attentive service. A steady stream of take away orders from enthusiastic locals as well. Highly recommended!
