Good takeaways

Previous visits for lunch and takeaways have been excellent and this was no different. We had takeaway dinner for 6 people and it was very pleasant. Only slight issue was that they currently (May 2015) have a limited menu, with only three options. That was a bit disappointing but the choices we got... read more

My 12 year old was wanting some Indian take aways for lunch. I thought it was expensive at first, but the aroma made me want to eat and he shared some with me. There was enough to satiate me, and him, plus lots left over for his lunch tomorrow :-) Definitely will be returning.

Car parking is a dream being next to a large public car park. We were put in a small room at the rear nice. There was 4 adults and a child. We orders 5 banquet meals. I would have put the food to be medium to poor quality. The quantity was queried but we were fobbed off

After reading the good reviews here about this restaurant, maybe our expectations were too high. The samosas were charred around the edges, dry and the small amount of filling was tasteless, but this was countered with the delicious onion bhajia. The butter chicken was very tender but lacking something...My vegetarian friend did not enjoy the vegetable dish she ordered, but... More

We were told about this place by the lady who owned the house we were staying in. Went there on a Monday night and it was fairly busy. We really rate our local Indian restaurant here in Fremantle and most others we have visited on our travels do not compare favourably - but this one did!! We were pleasantly surprised... More
