A rather disappointing experience, particularly given the other reviews for this place. We arrived around 7pm to be greeted by a very dark restaurant, that is difficult to find being located round the back of an office complex. It wasn't clear at first whether it was even open as there was no-one else in the place at all and very... More

Honestly the best Indian on the coast. You have to try the tandoori chicken and the pakoras on the entree menu. Anything from the mains has been incredible. Love love love this place, give it a try!

The taste was one of the best indian curries I have ever had. The staff were very kind and there was a parking lot. I made takeaway but I will have supper there in the nest visit.

We enjoyed a beautiful meal here. We had the 2 person special ($49.95 for two people), which included a choice of entrees, 2 curries, rice, naan, raita and mango chutney. The curries were beautiful, and we were pleased that we took the waiter's suggestion of ordering "medium". Certainly spicy enough! The two were ordered (Chicken Kalimirchi and Beef Rogan Josh)...
