“Best Indian Food in Sydney!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

I eat here once a month with my spouse and friends.
The food is amazing! The best indian food outside of India!
Sanjay makes sure the food is cooked to the appropriate hotness (you can ask for mild if you prefer) and he almost always recommends you try something new when you visit regularly.
There's a great selection of dishes for vegetarians too. For this quality of food and generous portions you'd expect to pay a lot but the prices are affordable.
The restaurant also hosts special nights every few months where they offer a buffet of new dishes they want to add to the menu.
I have never had a bad meal here and I have been going once a month for 3 years.
I would recommend the chicken biryani, king prawns, and beef vindaloo.

“I love this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2012 via mobile

I have been coming here for about 10 years now and it's always the same great food and service. The owner is great and when we took our friend who was pregnant and reacts to certain food coloring, he made sure all her foods were made separately to avoid any issues. He was so accommodating and great about it all. We usually go with a group of friends and get the banquet. We are always stuffed full of food after visiting that place.

“Fantastic food with a owner trying very hard to please”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2011

Pleasure to your taste bud!

Chicken tikka, lamb korma, are definitely superior quality. Butter chicken is not the usual butter chicken, but will a very rich tomato sweetness. The naan bread (original, butter, and garlic) is so good you will want a set to takeaway!

“Very good cuisine with a chef/owner who tries very hard to please.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2011

Very good food supported by good service. I always ask for suggestions and am never disappointed. The only restaurant I know where I am told if I have ordered too much food.

Reasonably good quality food, and service OK. Sometimes the dishes are a bit small. BYO
