You could do better by buying frozen Indian meals at Woolworths..very ordinary. The staff were OK.. I left very disappointed. May be it was because of the holiday crowd??? Will not be back.

I have been to this restaurant a few times and it has consistently performed well on service and tasty indian fare. The menu has a good range of classic indian food at a reasonable price. It makes for a nice change from fish and chips, pizza or pub food during a holiday to the beach.

This was our favorite Indian restaurant but our last visit was a disappointment. Meals still taste great but the amount of meat is lacking. I don't like paying for the sauce. Surely a bit if extra chicken or lamb isn't that expensive. Take away meals are even worse mostly sauce.

My wife and I dined here. My Vindaloo was bland and our shami kebab starter was burned. We mentioned that to the wait staff who really didn't see it as an issue. Unless you are starving and every where else is full or closed save your money. Martin

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.
