“Too much spice! ”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2014

The staff were polite abd attentive, though the food was disappointing. Both my wife and I love hot and spicy food, however the quantity of powdered spice was over the top and we could only take a few bites.

Our curry was made milder but we were told that's how the 'normal' Srilankan Vindaloo (at a Punjabi restaurant!!) tastes like.. :S

“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.
