“nice and spicy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

The restaurant was quiet tonight but that didnt matter as the food we had was really good. The chicken was good breast meat and both meals we ordered were nice and spicy hot. As poms living in Australia we struggle to find a good curry place to suit our spicier tastes. Well done.

“Typical suburban Indian”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

We visited on a cold Saturday night at 7:45 pm and the restaurant was empty even though there were a few tables occupied when I had driven past an hour earlier. The place is BYO so we took a bottle of wine and were immediately shown to a table with no wine glasses. I grabbed glasses off another table and poured my own wine while I waited for menus. Menus and water arrived but it took a while for our orders to be taken. The three staff members chatted behind the counter until we finally attracted their attention. Surprisingly the food was very good with our curries both tasty and well spiced. We thought the garlic and vegetarian naan breads were very good also. Due to a complete lack of atmosphere we finished our meal quickly and departed. The staff appeared disinterested because it was a very slow night.

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014

I'm so happy that I've found the best butter chicken in Australia, and including all the butter chicken I've had in New Zealand. The food was absolutely devine! Most definately the best Indian meals I have ever had, really great and friendly service. Fantastic pricing too, thank you Curry and tandoor! But the only let down was the atmosphere and decor. Until next time guys! :)

“Over-rated”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2014 via mobile

We're struggling to understand how this place had such good reviews? Surprised to see only 1 other table at 7.30pm on a Saturday night. Decor is very bland. Food was edible but didn't taste home-made, very commercial. Service was good but staff wear track suits and could present better.

“Horrific”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2014 via mobile

Having decided to treat ourselves to an Indian takeaway, this just made the horrific meal all the more bitter. Having ordered 2 chicken korma's what we got was chicken in what can only be described as watery macaroni cheese sauce. Not a korma by any means and completely inedible; cheese sauce? Really?! To add insult to injury we then found hairs in the poppadoms.

I can't comment on the service or atmosphere as we didn't eat in.
