Well recommended

The friendly experience from being welcomed on arrival to when we left was just the start of a great evening. The food was some of the most authentic I've had at any Indian restaurant and service was attentive without constantly interrupting. Portions and pricing was was well justified.

This restaurant is probably my favourite one in Launceston. It's great for couples, families, friends and you can either book, walk in or get take away. The staff are always friendly, efficient and they remember you and your favourite dishes! The food is fabulous and great value for money.

This was my first experience of Indian food, and WOW! The food was lovely, and the service was quick. Certainly some room to improve on the service of staff, and their engagement with customers. We ordered a number of dishes and shared between our 5 guests. A very popular Indian restaurant in Launceston, so would suggest booking as I seen... More

We order four currys and two rices we all loved the food and the portions were more than big enough and the taste was fantastic. Tuesaday night and 25 people through the door says a lot itself.

Compared to other restaurants of quality in the area the food was very average and expensive. I would rather eat at Black Cow or Stillwater and pay the additional premium.

We had dal tadka, mix vegetable, matar mushroom and palak paneer. We asked them to make food light with no cream and were quite happy to receive still good tasty food. Pista Kulfi had too much green colour and very less pista. Take away rotis were given in a brown paper bag without wrapping in foil. Staff was quite loud... More

Very tasty Indian food but with a price to pay. Pretty expensive for small helpings. Not worth the price to pay. What was deplorable is the hygiene. We were seated near the pantry/kitchen and the way they wash the cups and refill for water is horrific. Long wait for your food to be served as well.

We popped in here for dinner during our stay in Launceston. The food was simply delicious, even my eight year old daughter loved it. Good quality Indian cuisine and friendly helpful staff

I went with 2 friends for a meal in the Indian Empire. I normally wouldn't spend $20 eating out but the quality of the food made it worth it. I spent a few months in India so I know what good Indian food is and this was up there with anything I had. We all shared the 3 dishes and... More

I often go to this restaurant as it's so reliable regarding service, food and atmosphere. As it is a family business, you almost feel as if you are a part of the family. No matter what you order, it is always delicious. Most importantly, it is still a BYO and the food sizes are more than adequate. I never leave... More
