after reading raving reviews I was expecting to be blown away with a party in my mouth and this was not the case. Yeah the food was good but not amazing and it took forever to get.

Tried the Chicken chetinaad, lamb garlic potatoes and beef mugali prawns for mains. They were all exceptional. The nanas were fluffy and and... More

I have dined here at least 3 or 4 times over the past year when visiting Mackay. While the atmosphere and service are rather average, I had not yet had a bad experience with the food. Last night, four of us enjoyed a mixed entree platter and then 3 mains with basmati rice and garlic naan. The mixed entree was... More

Sat at table for 20 mins with waitresses walking past & we were offered absolutely nothing, drinks, water, entrees... The restaurant was very empty & staff were standing around doing nothing... We ended up walking out & went to another restaurant...... Normal Mackay.......

Are you kidding? All these great reviews! Have any of these reviewers tried good indian food? A few of us dined here last year and I swear it had to be the worst Indian experience I've ever lived through. The food was downright ghastly. The sauces were watery and an unusual colour. I had the beef vindaloo. The meat was... More

Do yourself a favour & try this one. My friend & I both thought this was the most amazing Indian food we had ever eaten. Service was great as well.

I was in Mackay wih my husband for a single night, coming from north QLD. We had no reservation, so looked for restaurants that had seats available. We haven't checked prior reviews, basically choosing by the name of restaurant. What a great and delicious surprise! Food was incredible, the best we had in the country since our arrival a few...

We ate at this restaurant last night and were very disappointed. We arrived early and only one other couple in the restaurant and waited one hour for our entrée. We ordered Vegetable Pakoras and they mainly consisted of chickpea batter and not much vegetable. They had no flavour whatsoever - lucky they came with 2 dipping sauces, which made them... More
