“Consistently Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2011

I've been eating here for 8 years! We always try new curry places but nobody does it better than The Cove. Never sloppy or watery, always generous with the meat in the dishes, delicious vegetarian fare also. The Saturday night buffet is a treat we enjoy with friends. And they have kingfisher beer too. The Sunday lunch buffet is more a family affair, which explains the chicken nuggets & chips another reviewer mentioned.

“Top notch food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2011

The Cove is a lovely Indian restaurant in a quaint setting. The food is absolutely delicious and of a premium quality - attested to by the several gold plate finalist awards displayed on the wall as you enter. The prices are not astronomical either, which is good.
If you are after some flavourful Indian food with a good variety of dishes to choose from, you will not be disappointed by The Cove.

“Value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2009

Atmosphere:
The restaurant is in a house set back from Canning Hwy. This gives it a welcoming feel when entering the restaurant. Furniture and ornaments for sale are on display in several rooms. Dining is on an enclosed verandah with good lighting and plenty of space. We dined on a weekday and there were several groups of people, but it wasn't loud or crowded. There is also an inside room with available seating.

Service:
Average.

Food:
The buffet dinner has plenty of variety and is well worth it considering the typical cost of a la carte. There was only one 'indian hot' curry which was beef vindaloo, and the others were medium hot. The butter chicken and lamb rogan josh were perfectly cooked - a must-have. I was a little disappointed with the raita at the salad bar, it didn't have enough spice or cucumber for my liking. The dessert selection was good, with choice of cakes, gulab jaman (my favourite), icecream, and 2 other indian desserts I don't know the name of - also tasty (but extremely sweet, good for the sweet-tooth!). The coffee machine is self-serve as well. Mango lassi (always ordered when eating indian food) was nice.

Tried the Sunday lunch buffet. Reasonable quality and selection. Could have done without the chicken nuggets and chips though!
