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

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

We have been here a few times and always good food. The restaurant is a little noisy but not overly so. Would recommend for great Indian food with above average service.

We went here for dinner tonight. The food was delicious and the hospitality was great! We only waited 15 mins for our dinner. I had the rogan josh and my wife had the butter chicken. Both was very nice!

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
