Had heard great things about this restaurant, after ordering a main, we had to wait over an for the meal to come out. When questioned as to the length of the wait the staff were unable to provide an explanation and did not even acknowledge the issue. The food when it came finally came out was acceptable but tainted by... More

My daughter wanted Indian, and so we ended up here. It may not be as bright and shiny as the surrounding establishments, but the food was tasty and the service very quick. It was a Wednesday evening and they seemed to be quite busy, maybe half full of tables and endless stream of people getting takeaways, so it definitely has... More

I ordered an onion bhaji that was obviously pre cooked and not necessarily today. It was cooked in oil not hot enough and was dripping in oil. The main course, a so called Chicken Tikka Masala, was bland and had no spice infusion and tasted like it came out of a tin, no disrespect to Sharwoods, since it was not... More

Food is always amazing. Have been coming here since it opened and every time whether it be takeaway or dine in, is fantastic! TIP: If you love mango, try the mango chicken. Mild is nice if your not into super hot dishes.

Very good service and very well looked after, and food was very nice as well. Not large serves though. would eat there again, just a little bit of a walk right down the other end of Palmer St

Nicely presented restaurant but the foods were disappointing. Most dishes are dull, rather typical of the suburban Indian restaurant in Australia. Prices are reasonable and services good.

this restaurant really satisfies your curry cravings, and the best part is it can all be made with mild spices. the butter chicken is worth a try as the tastes really good. beef masala was great as well. the atmosphere was quiet and the outdoor seating was the best part of the experience with the view of the Townsville harbour....

I am not a fan of indian food, but this restaurant serves the most wonderful curries that make you want to gorge yourself (and one of our crew certainly did). Friendly service, food was quick and well presented. Will definitely be going back for more.

We had chicken tikka masala and beef vindaloo, papadums and garlic naan. We got takeaway. The chicken was plain and oily (more than ud normally expect). The vindaloo was better but nothing to rave about. The naan was yucky we didn't finish one piece. I still ate most of the dish because I was hungry and it wasn't awful, but... More
