Great spice and flavours!

The curries are on the expensive side and then you have to pay extra for all your accompaniments eg rice, naan etc. They also don't always have all the drinks offered on the menu. The food menu is quite extensive however and lots of spice options. The food is very tasty and aromatic. The atmosphere... read more

I've had good indian and bad indian food but I can't recall having tasteless food. I eat quite a lot of indian from top notch restaurants to food courts and I've never had anything this bad. It was just tasteless. I had the lamb rogan josh and a cheese naan. The lamb had a bit of a beef stock taste... More

made a booking but the staff made a mistake and did not book us a table. We stood for a long time waiting for a table to become available. The staff were unfriendly and the food took too long to arrive. Food was disgusting being full of fat, butter, gee and sugar. felt sick afterwards.

Between the miscommunication coupled with the extremely poor service with the wait staff, we had a long wait and about $30 discrepancy in the total of the bill. The food was good but not that good that I'd put up with lack of service.

Been to this place many times but not once have they managed to deliver the food ontime. If u order takeaway, they say 35 minutes but takes at least an hour, I must have tried atleast 4 times over the span of 6 months, every single time they are understaffed and once they even cocked up the order. The food... More

I love going to this place, one of the best eateries in Mackay. Because of its popularity, expect to wait quite a while to eat (my own meal was delayed by 40 minutes). The wait is worth it, but hopefully they improve their time (and would get a 5 star rating) So, their are a range of foods from various... More

We have recently travelled to Mackay but got there really late (after 10pm). Knowing that we won't be able to have a sit down meal anywhere at that time, we rang ahead (around 6pm) and ordered delivery to our hotel for 10pm. We expected the restaurant to say they could deliver at the latest 9pm and we would have had... More

Went for lunch and the service was great. The lunch menu was very reasonably priced and the food tasty. I walked away full and happy. Only wished I asked them to make the curry spicier.
