What the heck has happened to this place? Whenever we come to Byron we pop in for dinner one night. This time round everything has gone down the toilet. Waited 50 min before the papadums even got served, remaining sizzling plate and curry was really below average. The naan bread was a disaster (really heavy, and pretty gross tasting...). The... More

Ate here with my girlfriends on one trip - I would have to say it was up there with some of the best curry I've ever eaten. We were 'drop-ins' and it was really busy, but the service was great and the food came quickly. Another trip to Byron and with much talking-up, I ate here with my partner and... More

Waited 10minutes before a menu was brought, had to ask for my table to be cleaned from the previous diners, had to ask for my drinks 25mins after ordering - both cold drinks poured straight from a bottle. An hour went by before our food came meanwhile the table next to us came after, ate and left before us! Bacon... More

What can I say about this place ??? Overpriced, understaffed and the food was garbage. The food was some of the blandest, rubbish Indian food I've ever tasted. There was only one waitress for the whole restaurant, so service was slow. The price of the food was rediculous, I paid less for a much better curry in Sydney. We only... More

YUCK! Seriously understand why this restaurant is always empty whenever we are in Byron. One Waitress, One Cook ( i dont dare call him a chef) and two tables, you'd think service would be efficient. - we walked into the empty restaurant and had to sing out to even get noticed. We ordered what they refer to as 'Tandoor Chicken... More

This is a very poor excuse for a restaurant. Food is overpriced and of very poor quality. All food we had looked like it had come out of a can. This is a very poor excuse for a restaurant. It is cramped with very small tables and the whole place has a neglected feel and look. Dope smoke wafted through... More

A group of us attended this cafe for breakfast a few weeks ago. At the time, we experienced good service from the female waitress, the coffee wasn't bad, the food was a bit overpriced but tasted ok, and the atmosphere was really nice. HOWEVER, that's where the fun ends!!! A few people in our group (including me), got VERY SICK... More

Great food, fresh and tasty. Wait staff are lovley but probably backpackers so may not be there when you go. They also cater for Breakfast and lunch (not Indian cuisine then)

Not really an Indian restaurant is it ? More of a loose attempt to cash in on the popularity of Indian food. Perhaps the kitchen staff have no idea of what proper Indian food should taste like. It would be interesting to get a peer review done on the food though. My experience is very bad food, service, toilets etc.... More
