“Shocking service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2013

I don't get it. If you go out for a meal you do not only want to enjoy food but also have a pleasant experience. This place makes you fell like a beggar, you need to ask for just about evrything. Water on the table was not replaced, one had to go to the bar for further drinks, the waitresses for slow despite an empty restaurant. It took quite a while for the menue and food to arrive. Food was average, more gravy in the daal than lentils, the bryani was very "wet" with the rice tasting soggy. Rice for the table arrived only 10 minutes after the main dishes. Avoid this place, they dont care about business and servicd

“Best Indian in Rocky”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Been here probably 30 times so I know what to expect and can give a fairly balanced view based on numerous visits rather than 1 when the service may have been slow or the chef was having a bad day. I am not an indian food expert and would steer clear of the over the top hot and spicey dishes so if thats what you want dont ask me.I am just a normal Aussie who likes Indian food mild to moderate spice level and this fits the bill perfectly.I guess it is westernized indian food but most people like that. Service is friendly (although I think they know me by now) and value is excellent.

“delicious and great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

We were starving and wanted to eat early at 5.30, so this place was a god-send. The waitress was warmly welcoming, and when we tried to order too much food she cautioned us not to - I think that is excellent practice! We chose a prawn madras and a lamb dish, with garlic naan and steamed rice. Both curries were light, not over-salted, with superb quality ingredients. The naan were not at all oily, but light and fluffy. The ambience is fine, although if I was there for a long time the Bollywood music video might get a bit much.
