Casual cuisine at Cooly!

Good food, with great service and nice atmosphere. I tried the prawn Marsala and was not disappointed! Garlic naan was a great surprise. Nice spot to people watch too!

My second time dining here on the weekend (28/02/15) and I believe the food was possibly even better than before. The service is friendly, the staff even rearranged the furniture so we could sit outside. It is BYO but there's a bottle shop right across the road. I am allergic to peppers, so I tend to go for the non-spicy... More

Lovely meal here on Sat 7/2/15. Starters: chicken tikka generous portion v tasty, plus they gave us free samosas; mains: lamb sagwala (medium not hot as asked but beautifully tender meat) & delicious chicken madras, 2x naans, complimentary rice - all under $50. Good value, attentive staff, meals out quickly but never rushed. Will be back. PS Its BYO so... More

We have been enjoying the food at Shah Jahan for over 22 years, it is always plentiful and delicious. It's run by a lovely local family. As to the degree of hotness the staff are very helpful with that advice. The new premises in Griffith St are opposite a BWS which is handy seeing its a BYO restaurant

Thought we would try this restaurant as we all enjoy indian food. We ordered four curries, naan bread and sides to takeaway. Unfortunately it was not a good experience and only the butter chicken measured up in taste but was a funny colour and was not finished. As for the other three curries (lamb vindaloo, tikka masala, massaman curry) they... More

Very nice outdoor atmosphere. Had very good beef and lamb curries at this restaurant. Naan bread excellent. Service was very friendly and efficient. When we mentioned to our host that one of the curries did not have enough heat for us she asked if she could take it away and spice it up a bit more. Came back just right... More

We had dinner here, outside on a balmy night. Ordered 3 dishes, rice and naan, it was more than we could eat and we could take a doggy bag home. Beautiful taste, nice service, I can recomment it.
