This placed turned out to be a really nice surprise. The "Paneer Masala" was definitely a winner. So much that I've been coming back to this place with friends. Have yet to try everything on the menu. Some notables: - Cumin rice is definitely worth the upgrade - Mango chicken is really really mangoey (for the sweet tooth) - Lamb... More

Thoroughly enjoyed dining here. Meals were fantastic and very filling. The staff were friendly and the lovely lady who served our table went above and beyond. Highly recommend this place to anyone who enjoys authentic Indian.

Our group consisted of nine people, and we all really enjoyed the atmosphere and meals. The only issue was some of the dishes that were meant to be very mild, ended up being too spicy for some of the members in our party. However we were all very impressed with the atmosphere and the outstanding service from the staff. They... More

Our second visit was just as good as the first two years before. Enjoyed the Tandoori Sizzler as entree for four, followed by an excellent chicken vindaloo, lamb roganjosh and the hit of the evening being the Daal Makhini made with black lentils. The Mt Langi Shiraz went perfectly. The staff were friendly and helpful and the chef explains the... More

My chicken curry was dry and had too much seasoning. The seasoning on the chicken was overpowering and the sauce was smothered all over the chicken. The whole thing tasted bad. I could not taste the chicken at all. Much improvement is required from this place before they can charge more.

This is the third review on this restaurant I have done and possibly the last. In my opinion, over the last couple of visits the overall standard has slipped to a point verging on unacceptable. Water in a bottle was taken from a table containing a dozen or so bottles of water, sitting under the overhead heater, and placed on... More

I recently ate here with a group of around 15 and we chose to book in for the banquet style menu at $35 a head. The staff were welcoming and their service was outstanding. The dishes were delicious and there was more than enough for everyone. My personal favourites were the Beef Vindaloo, the chicken Tikka and the Garlic Naan.... More

Service was really good and we were well looked after, food when it reached the table did not look like a lot but we couldnt finish it all which was unfortunate because it was really delicious ( 3 main, 2 rice, 3 naan for 3 of us). everything we ordered (veggie dumpling dish, tandoori chicken and butter chicken) was flavoursome...

I've never considered myself an Indian fan but I recently came here with a small group, I talked everyone into sharing there meals, it's the only way to go, a taste of everything, the cheese and garlic naan bread was awesome and plenty to share! We had a great time and certainly going back
