“up there with the best”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2012

Been here twice and despite the mixed reviews below, I cannot complain. In fact, this Indian restaurant food is up there with the best and not overpriced. Definitely not curry in a hurry, depending on the number of diners, the service can be slow. The interior wouldn’t mind a bit of attention.

“Avoid!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2011

The manager and waiters have a bad attitude, are not pleasant and slow. The food is disgusting and lacks flavour...not authentic at all. There is no attempt to make amends when you complain. Overall food quality and service is poor....basically, crap!
