Average to good food

If there had been a category titled "good" we would have chosen it as this restaurant in not quite very good. We chose Onion Bharj and Samosa which were average but OK. For mains we had Rogan Josh and Tikka Masala which were both tasty. The garlic Naan was good. In peak season we found the service... read more

Whilst the food was nice, the Manager was extremely rude and didn't appear to care about the patrons. For the price of the meal I expected much much more

My husband and I ate here on a quiet Monday night. The service was excellent and the food tasty although the tomtao in the chicken tikka sauce was a bit too strong for my tastes. My only complaint would be that wine by the glass is very limited although I do note that you can BYO for an AUD 6.50... More

Food is really authentic and tasty. But suggest you go outside holiday season and on weekdays as staff are light on and expect a wait if theres more than 3 tables.

This was the 2nd time we have visited this restaurant. Both times the food has been good, but both times the service has been painfully slow with tonight being ridiculous! They only had one girl serving and when my husband walked past the kitchen to get to the toilet, he said it looked like they only had one guy in... More

This restaurant was quiet, but don't let looks be deceiving. It was a weeknight, and I can imagine this place is busier on the weekends. My husband and I ate late, but the food and service was very good. We hoped to find an Indian restaurant open too, so this was perfect! We ordered butter chicken, lamb korma with jasmine... More

Restaurant looks lovely amd service was good and that's the only positive thing I have to say. Tastes like Pataks as previous reviewer said. Asked for mild food but got chilli laden food and sloppy food at that. Rice was very dry.Waste of money.
