Don't need fancy! Just want good food. Very basic SMALL restaurant. No heating in winter, so I'm thinking no cooling in summer. Price & Value . Makes up for it.

This is a very unassuming place. From the outside, one would be forgiven for passing it by, but once confronted with the generous dishes of authentic food, you will sing its joy for a long time. Very reasonable and very palatable. I've been twice this week and thoroughly enjoyed the food. Not your average Indian/Australian experience.

Its a small place, not very impressive from outside. But once you enter, you find very simple people serving you good food - mind you the food here is a little spicy so decide accordingly. All in all, small little place in cbd mainly to help me satisfy my cravings for home made roti / chappati :)

Despite the ordinary exterior, this restaurant was a delightful find. I love samosas and these were the best I've had in Australia. The pastry was very light and not oily, with the vegetable mix just perfectly spicy. The dahl was creamy and delicious. I was the only person there on a Saturday night just before a show at Her Majesty's... More

This is the one and only Bangladeshi restaurant in Melbourne, Try their Biryani very good. Bangladeshi Biryani might look similar to Indian Biryani but they taste different after a long search finally I found some thing close to Biryani in Melbourne.

Was nice to have a garlic naan not smothered in butter! The chef recommended changing my order so as not to be so dry, I'm glad I did. I can't remember the name of it but it was a potato/vegetable curry. It was plentiful in chilli heat, enough to know you're alive but not overpowering. The staff were friendly, very... More

The portion sizes were poor, food was oily and tasteless, service was average, ambiance is plain bad and the price just not worth it. moreover i had searched their details over the internet, but when i tried, their phone number was incorrect and their website was out of order.. overall...
