Very slow service: we waited one hour faor the main courses. Really expensive. Every dish tasted horrible and had a bad colour. Nothing to do with Indian cooking.Main spice: sugar.

As for the title, we ha a very good dining experience there, eating indian food at its best. Service was fast and relaxed. It's located on the main street of Lismore city centre, next to the castle.

I have eaten in this restaurant several times, very friendly staff, attentive without being too overbearing,fine sized portions that leave you feeling well filled rather than hungary or over stuffed. Reasonably priced, all in all a very enjoyable quiet relaxing meal in a quiet relaxing town.

I was very disappointed with a recent takeaway from here I'm sorry to say. We decided to get a combination of starters instead of a main. The food was poor. It tasted like it was reheated in a microwave. The Onion Bahji's were dry and crispy. Awful. The salad we received with our meal was placed in Centra veggie/salad bag.... More

had a lovely meal here recently. It was my first visit and I was unsure what to order as I don't like very hot or spicy food .Abu asked which meat I preferred and said to leave it to him, and went to the kitchen to order for me. I still don't know what it was, but it was delicious,... More

The food was ok and we appreciated that we could bring our own wine as the restaurant doesn't serve alcohol.

The food is all gluten free and made with fresh spices; consequently it takes a while to serve, but that can sometimes be a good sign. The family staff are very attentive but unimposing. They allow you to bring your own wine - quite a saving on the bill; I haven't seen that offered in years. Go there.
