One of my favourite places to dine but service has slumped lately

This is one of if not my favourite place to dine - we have only been there about 3 times in the past year however and the service has been pretty average. With only one person working the floor, one night there were only 2 tables and it took us over 20 mins just to get our first round of... read more

This is one of my favourites in Mackay. I go here often. The food is delicious! The price is a good value. I eat there for lunch and have never been disappointed!

If you want a real spicy flavour filled Indian meal give this place a miss. If you want very little chilli or mild Indian dining experience then it's not too bad. The service staff were good but we had to wait 20 minutes for the start of our banquet which was only a shot glass of mild tomato sauce and... More

Absolutely superb Indian takeaway. All meals were amazing and the naan was excellent. The vindaloo was super hot ( the way my husband likes it) The butter chicken and mango chicken were suitably mild but super flavoursome

We absolutely loved this restaurant, but went for a meal last night and we were both very disappointed, which is a shame seeing we do a 150 km round trip for the experience. The lovely young girl in the dining room was trying to do just about everything, from the bar, front of house greeting, clearing tables and serving food... More

Worst service! Went with a group for the movie n buffet deal. We waited 2 hours and walked out. We were given half our naans with no explanation as to where the rest were. Offer a drink once and each time we called the waiters they deliberately ignored us. Speaking to other tables, this was standard. Didn't even taste the... More
