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.

I went to this restaurant with my vegetarian friend and so that we could share I also ordered vegi food. Obviously carrots were on special at Woolworths that day as my friend ordered Vegetable Jalfrezzi which was about 3/4's carrot. I personally have nothing against carrots, but not as a main meal. My dish was Palak Aloo (spinach and potatoes)... More

This is a great little Indian restaurant. The portions are a good size and the food is very tasty. Very good value for money. BYOB and there is a BWS right across the street, which is very handy. Service is adequate, but you are really going for the food. I would definitely go back.

Had the Chilli Prawns as an entree which was absolutely yummy. Staff a little slow but the food could not be faulted. It was a cold night and a curry was just what we wanted. The flavours of what we had were great. Love a good Indian!! Will definitely go again on another visit

Not at all impressed a couple of years ago when we last visited this restaurant but things have changed. They have moved in to Griffiths Street next to another (great) restaurant and it looks like the young'uns have taken over the running of the restaurant. Service was terrific, nothing was too much trouble and the food was spot on, authentic... More
