Got take away from here for a group of four. Ordered two sets of entrees and three mains. More than enough. All of the curries were really good (butter chicken, rogan josh & one other). Will definitely return.

Under new management. The food is so stock standard, they are relying on cream and sugar for flavour. The food is fatty and not authentic Indian by any stretch of the imagination. The meat is thin on, just lots of sauce. They always stuff our orders up. Sorry but will be voting with our feet, can't keep making excuses for... More

Visited this restaurant for a "nice" night out in Portarlington. The sign on the front window proclaimed that it was "under new management" and according to the staff we spoke to this change had occurred the previous week. There may have been a few teething problems (or staffing issues) on the night we visited as the front of house appeared... More

In town for a couple of days and looking for good food and good service and we found a restaurant by far equal to many highly patronised big city establishments. The staff were friendly and attentive with good advice and the food was very tasteful, plenty of flavor and very generous.

Went out for dinner and once the food was ordered the waitress was so rude and preferred to talk to her friend then talk to us as the food came out cold! Then as we complained she got her back up and was really nasty. All the staff seemed to hide in the kitchen not caring... All of us 3... More

We had the kofta & Dahl & they were both fantastic. It was a phone order & we had no menu, the person on the phone was helpful & attentive. Perfect spice - a great find.
