We stayed at the Standpipe and had room service . The room was good. Staff good. Our meal was also good, but having read other reviews we're definitely going to try a curry next time!

Passing through Pt Augusta we asked locals and looked at reviews for a place to Dine. We turned up at 5:50 and the doors were locked with people lining up outside not sure what to do. Once seated we were given good service and meals came out in good time. The lamb shanks were nice but unfortunately my wife's $38... More

Their curries are the best and I would recommend the menu to anyone who love a quality curry. Their service is excellent and the interior has beautiful wooden areas and comfortable furniture. I had been told about this restaurant and their beautiful curries, So once viewing the menu and selecting my course, I was pleasantly satisfied. I wouldn't go anywhere... More

You might not expect to go to the country and find such amazing Indian food and such exceptional service. If you are staying if Port August for just one night even and are looking for a place to go for dinner which isn't one of the local pubs then definitely go here. I have several friends who travel for Port... More

I booked into the StandPipe for some luxury on a stinking hot day to ride the Nullarbor, figured that an establishment like the StandPipe would have a restaurant. I didnt expect such a great Indian restaurant! Suffice it to say the food was excellent, as was the wine and the service.

Good food, great vibe and excellent service. We didn't stay there but had no problem booking in. For a Tuesday night it was very busy.

The food was as good if not better than what you get in many Indian restaurants in a capital city. Extensive wine list and lots of different beers available.
