“Good Value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

Good Indian food at a fair price. Good service in a nicely set out restaurant, with the decor not being too over the top.

“Great food, Great atmosphere, Great Value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

Ive eaten here many times over the last couple of years and it is consistently warm and friendly. The food is tasty and well presented and always satisfies. The Sunday night buffet is incredible value and is a great way to explore the wonderful flavours of Indian cuisine without breaking the bank. The belly dancer on Saturday night was an interesting addition.
If you haven't eaten here then try it! You wont be disappointed. I am salivating just thinking about it!

“Reasonable quality Indian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

In a city where there are lots of restaurants this is a good quality Indian restaurant that has modified the menu to cater to the local tastes. Some of the dishes work very well but some not. Prices are modest and service can be slow, but heck what is the hurry?

“Easy but generic”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

We've tried this restaurant a few times, just to give it a chance, and since they often have discount offers available. It's ok. It's just not worth the effort really. The decor and location are nice, the selection is fine. But the food does not standout except for the worst dishes (one vegetable option seemed to be a diced frozen food medley served in a somewhat watery sauce). It's not that expensive, so it's not something to avoid. But there are so many better Indian places in town.

“Indian food & Service at its best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

A sensational Indian food experienced here. Purchased a ‘My Deal’ which did not disappoint Tasting entrée which was a WOW factor then a choice of any main MUST have the goat and then a tasting desert plate complimented the flavours of sweet India. This was washed down with a top of the wine (red) range which was included in the deal
The staff were exceptional who made the effort to explain the dishes and topped up the water for those who need it. To add to this great experience the deal is available without a voucher – just mention that you have had it before. BONUS will be back!
