It's worth searching out this little Indian restaurant at Olinda in the Dandenong Ranges. It's family run with authentic Indian cuisine to eat there or take home. It has an extensive menu and I've always been happy with the quality of the food. Recommended.

Wow, what a surprise, a small place so you may want to book...simple good value and mouth watering Indian food. An absolute gem in the hills and worth a drive to get here.

We had 2 curries- a prawn & a chicken & they were able to cater for our gluten/dairy/egg-free request & it still came out tasting fantastic! Not too spicy & nice warm flavors! Went so well with the light basmati rice.

We live nearby and absolutely love this place. Fantastic yummy food that never dissapoints. I would recommend take away as you get more food and it's a bit cheaper. Very friendly staff as well.
