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 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.

Romantic atmosphere, great staff and a stand out menu! Great choices for vegans/vegetarians. Highly recommend eggplant with creamy cashew sauce and the coconut rice or pilau are great additions.

We have eaten in this restaurant before and we could not fault it. The food was great. Then when we saw that they did home delivery, we thought great - so we ordered online at 5.45pm, and they responded that they would deliver within an hour around 6.45.Well 7pm came 7.30 came then it finally arrived at 8.15pm.The driver apoligised...

Hands down the best Indian in town. Best flavour, most authentic and always enjoyable. I took some family who lived in India for a period of time for a meal and they were very impressed and they are hard sells!

We have dined here twice in the past month as we travelled through Mackay. The food is brilliant! Butter chicken is a must!!! And their mix platter too! The service is quick and the ladies very friendly! The atmosphere was a bit quiet before 7pm (we dine early as we have a small baby), but the restuarant seemed to get... More

After having absolutely horrible Indian at Masala in Townsville we were really craving authentic Indian on our roadtrip. We stayed in Mackay for the night on the way back home. Checked out reviews and this place seemed pretty popular. There was quite a few people eating when we arrived (which is always a good sign). I would say the service... More
