The Standpipe's restaurant is well worth the visit even if you are not staying at the hotel itself. While Oz food is part of the menu, the stand out is their indian cuisine. An excellent menu of indian curry mains and a comprehensive range of smaller accompanying dishes. The service is good and the restaurant itself roomy and while often... More

Simply appointed hotel. Rooms were basic and dated (bathrooms especially so). But the shower was nice, with plenty of hot water for those cold desert nights. Food at the restaurant was beautiful - and well presented. Staff were friendly. Bed was clean, but hard and uncomfortable.

If you love food, you'll love the Standpipe. It has a huge reputation for its delicious and authentic tasting curries, but the rest of the menu is just as wonderful. I have personally tried their curry, and their steaks, and I can say, you will adore the food. The service is exemplary, not fussy, but attentive. And look into the... More

From the out side we didn't think it was a place for kids. We were wrong. The meals were great and service we couldn't be happier with. They did have a kids menu.

We couldn't believe the quality of the food at Standpipe, we mostly shared Indian dishes which were delicious. My brother had a steak and was equally happy, good service and nice atmosphere, you can't really go wrong.

Funny a restaurant like of this standard of eating and wine, in the middle m of the outback, I put it like that as the dinning is normally in the big cities and you may wait hours for your seat. You can eat in side or out under cover, Indian food, curries, chicken schnitzel, but it is not just ordinary... More

This place is very good value with an excellent wine list. The meal was served within 2 minutes. Our goat curry was half bones but they gave us a free yummy sticky pudding with ice cream in lieu of that.

Augusta by far; authentic Indian food as well as Western if you need it! we've always had great service, good meals and an enjoyable time on every occasion we've been there; kids are no problem,prices are good, and your not jammed in with no space! My first choice to take anyone... More

Our family stopped in here for a meal on our way to cober pedy on Wednesday night. We arrived to be greeted with a friendly smile. The meals were lovely and the lady who served us was great. I really recommend this place for a good well priced meal.
