I am so happy that i found this place, because after travelling in India for 1.5 months, i really missed the flavours of their food and this is the first time i have eaten so good indian food outside of India. I have had food from there 2 times and will keep going back for more. Thank you for bringing... More

We visited the restaurant last night and was greeted in a friendly manner and promptly seated. The waitress was friendly and came over to take our drinks order. Sitting in the window were two guys and a lady who were making quite a lot of noise, we thought nothing of this at the time. As the restaurant emptied there was... More

Walked in and was ignored. Granted they had internet connection problems but there were 4 staff. Their saving grace was the lovely young lady who acknowledged us. Food was ok. Dough undercooked on naan and finding clay on it. Not good. Food bland. Not worth the money. P.S in your rebuttal, please do not call me dear

Frequented Maharajah ... Previous name...but same owner and general upgrade of facility. Nothing wrong with previous menu but so many new and different items on new menu as well as the old favourites. Some appealing extra vegetarian dishes included. Very fresh and tasty. Also expanded the Spice Store and lots of variety to choose from with recipes to follow at... More

Unfortunately we seem to hit a not so good night. We went to this restaurant after reading the good reviews but it didn't get close to any of the expectations. The tables and eating area were not very clean. The waiter was rather abrupt and seemed preoccupied. The food was ok but brought out hurriedly with some impatience. There was... More

I've been going to Rodgers or it's previous identities for several years. Last night the meal was excellent possible the best Indian meal I have ever tasted. I'm only in NZ for the next week but will try to visit Rodgers at least twice more. Can't wait for Rodger to visit Perth!!

I am really going to miss Rogers Kitchen Tandoori Restaurant. Roger is so kind and you must try his new dishes. The restaurant was packed to the seems yet we still got served immediately and the dishes came out within 15 minutes.

went here for a family meal last night and although our booking had not been documented they were able to accomodate our group of 13 and also found a high chair for our grandson.
