Most authentic Indian cuisine

I've been here a couple of times with my partner. He loves the home made naan bread and the butter chicken just melts in your mouth, I thought I could handle medium chilli, clearly not, i would recommend ordering one chilli down to what you would normally get. The staff has always been friendly... read more

Service was fast and the flavours of the dish I had was very good. The let down for me was there being only one Vegetarian dish without dairy which made for a distinct absence of choice. Some Indian Restaurants use coconut instead of dairy in a few Vegetarian dishes which would have been nice. Menu's lacked too much detail as... More

It never occurred to me that one of the best cheese naans I would taste would be in Launceston. Having eaten this dish in various Asian countries, I must admit AAJ's version is one of the best so far. It looks as normal as it can be and you will be pleasantly surprised after your first bite -- the cheese... More

Been here a couple of times and really like the great menu and drinks list, the nice atmosphere and decor, and friendly staff. We had a table of 10 and orders were taken quickly and good timing for courses. The food is authentic and you are really spoilt for choice. The restaurant is spacious and can easily cater for large... More

Wide variety of dishes. Great flavour. Friendly staff. The channa masala was one of the best we've had. Fresh dishes. Easy to find location. Can't go wrong!

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

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 that was the only thing wrong, very nice... 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.
