We only had a small takeaway order from this restaurant but everything was very nice. Will consider eating in next time we are in Melbourne.

Lovely food. Nepalese style. Had authentic Tandori Chicken Entree. Yumm, the flavour & colour was right through the meat. Tried the Nepalese Chilli chicken and Lamb Rogan Josh. Tip: Medium means true medium and is still quite hot for average people. Try one of their Cocktail Lassi's.

Not being a fan of Indian food from way back and dreading this business lunch with overseas clients. Boy was I wrong. Had an excellent lunch , the service was good and the food great. Went for a Nepalese chicken & noodle dish . Great Roti with lentils and spinach with cottage cheese. The fish curry was yum. Would definitely... More

Came here for dinner with friends. The place is huge inside (doesn't give that impression from the main door). The tables are a bit cramped up, decor is tasteless rustic with a bunch of paintings hung on all available spaces in the wall. The food is alright, bit overpriced for some of the dishes I felt. The dessert One-in-one kulfi... More

Had a banquet here for a birthday celebration. Great food. The portions were very generous, so much that we couldn't manage to eat it all. The staff were very attentive. Will definitely return.

My husband and I had a weekend in Melbourne for a gig, and on our second night and we really fancied Indian for dinner, the Indian restaurant in our little country town isn't that great and we were keen to find a restaurant which served decent food. And guess what? We found this place! The service was impeccable, the waiters... More

By far the best Indian I've ever had. Highly recommend the sizzling mushrooms for entree. I went with colleagues and 3 of us had different hot masalas which we all raved about. Service was very friendly and efficient while the venue was cozy on a cold Melbourne night. Keep up the good work you Indians, I will be back !

Great authentic Indian food here. Very good selection and cooked to your desired heat tolerance. The staff are very friendly and the atmosphere is relaxed. I would recommend this restaurant - I have been both at night and during the day.
