Dined here on a cold wet public holiday, very quiet, no reservation, we were the only 2 dining in, although there were probably 10 groups that came in to collect take away. Food was plentiful, inexpensive, service was attentive and helpful, the only drawback was the vindaloo was not super hot but... read more

I have never been tempted to write a review for Trip Advisor....until having one of the worst meals ever! I am a fan of malai kofta so ordered this and could not even finish it. I'm not sure if this is a traditional additive but there was some kind of bright green and red colouring in the sauce. This, the... More

This restaunrant was pleasent enough, staff were friendly and the food was certainly ok, there was just nothing notable to report really. If you are in to mild butter chicken as your preferred indian dish, then i suspect you will find this a lovely place to eat. If you are more in to traditional spice and intricate indian flavours, then... More

Traditional Indian food at its best- lots of gluten free options for miss 10, not too spicy for miss 13, warm plates, great service, delicious food, $100 for family of four, excellent quality again, this is our fourth visit.

Wow! Warm plates; great service; delicious food. Beats me why this place was not full? Apart from the food, the venue is pretty good and the service was wonderful!

This is a family restaurant and it is huge on the inside with well appointed decor, seating to spare, and a lounge area in front of a huge TV at the rear of the restaurant which proves handy for pre - dinner drinks. The servers were super friendly, with incredible memories, as they took our order for a table of... More

The food is good. the ambience great and the staff simple and devoted. The restaurant however is not flexible as INdian food should afford - not ready to innovate to modify stuff for the real Indian clients with nuanced taste for Indian food's variations. But to be fair, that may not be really necessary for non-Indian foodies.
