“Quick service at its best”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

Ate here because of reviews and were not disappointed, had to queue but that was not a problem as the Fresh roti’s are made in view of the window. Service is quick our curry’s were tasty and spicy but we like it that way, also we had a roti as starter but many people were having them as a main they were so substantial we should of shared one because we could not finish our main not a restaurant to linger they aim to get people in and out as fast as possible they have a a lot of staff who are very attentive.

“Fabulous Late Night Snack Meal”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2013

Freshly kneaded roti are good! Goes well the mild chilli curry sauce. The red sambal sauce give a strong spice kick.
The Chicken Satay Sticks are definitely the crowd-winner. We've ordered 1.5 dozens and can't seem to get enough.
Of course the highlight has to be the tall cone crispy thin dessert roti! Slightly salted and sweet that melt in your mouth.
Price is quite cheap in comparison with other restaurants nearby.

“Good food, prepare to queue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Heard a lot about the place before we went. Went with a friend for lunch therefore it wasn't as packed as dinner time but we still had to queue before getting into the establishment. The ambiance is good. the place is quite small but well decorated and very contemporary. The food was excellent. and once there, don't forget to order the TEE TAREK.

10/10 would recommend.

“SO GOOD!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2013

What great value. The lamb curry was amazingly tender and flavorful. Don't let the wait at the door turn you away - this is a terrific spot for lunch or dinner in Sydney. Don't miss this - you won't get a better $10 meal!!!

“Great food!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

Luckily we didn't have to wait to get seated, once we entered were ushered to our seats. the place is packed, busy and small but I see the reason why...people are even queuing up for take out inside and outside the place! Loved the food especially the Satay and the sauce that came with it. we also had the roti set, fried rice and chicken curry. Prices were alright and they even provide a big bottle of water. Service was fast and efficient, spent about 1 hr and enjoyed the great food!
