Very nice friendly staff and all the food was excellent. Best naan I've had for a long time. Authentic Indian food. Would recommend and we will be back.

The only reason we went here was the rating on Tripadvisor and because my daughter and I love Indian food. We were not disappointed! Upon arrival we were served free papadums with raita (where do you get anything for free these days?). Then we ordered the Bhurmese duck curry and the Indian butter chicken with sides. We loved everything, I... More

We had a lovely family dinner here whilst visiting out of town. Food was fantastic and we also picked up some great cooking tips on the way. Definitely worth a visit.

Loved the food. Been trying to find good Indian food since we got to Australia, and this is the closest we've found so far! As a large party of friends, everyone really enjoyed their food, with generous portions and superbly spiced dishes. The aloo paratha was delicious. Peggy was a star, looking after us all night and making sure everyone... More

Seasoned Indian food eaters here and this is one of the best Indian meals we've ever had, and at an awesome price with excellent service too. Highly recommend!

I never tried Burmese curry before - this time the Burmese Chicken was really tasty. Décor is basic, service was excellent and very friendly, but the wine list was extremely limited. Pilao rice was a bit different to usual - a lot of peas but no flavouring / colours in the rice. Outside seating is on the street - I... More

Very basic restaurant, old chairs, paper tablecloths, basic service, and food just ok. Really struggling to find something special to write about this restaurant...The manager/owner was polite. The toilets were in need of a good clean and the alley way out there was positively scary. They divided our table of nine into two groups and took orders separately. We then... More

Having been a fan of Indian, Vietnamese, Malaysia, Thai and even Cambodian cuisine for the past 3 decades I didnt think that there was anything left in this part of the world that could surprise me. Until I tried Carltons Curry House curried duck. It was absolutely delicious. The flavours are somewhere between Indian, Thia and Vietnamese but distinctly different.... More

Amazing food. Never been to an Indian restaurant that serves up such high quality food consistently. Been coming here for a long time and always leave thoroughly satisfied. Have brought friends from interstate who also praise it. The host Peggy always goes the extra mile and I will continue to eat here. Highly recommended.
