Two of us went in for buffet lunch on a Wednesday, $17.90 and it was very nice. Beef dish, chicken dish, vegetable dishes, breads & popadoms, vegetable pokoras and rice. Plenty to choose from on a baine marie. All the food was very tasty, as much as you can eat. Typical baine marie though, not enough heat, but they happily... More

I called in here last night to pick up some takeaway on the way home, ordering enough for the evening meal for two and planning to take some to work the next day. I ordered Chicken Korma (which wasn't actually on the menu), Pal Porial (lamb, fennel, lime), Beef Vindaloo, some rice and naan. The Chicken Korma was something other... More

Only ordered one dish for take away, so basing the review on that. But, for a simple dish, usually full of flavour, this was particularly bland, with the main feature of the spices being salt, and a thick layer of oil sitting on top of the food. Lentils were mashed, obviously cooked in a hurry, and very little variety in... More

Dined using a living social voucher. A warm greeting and friendly service with a good explanation of the deal. The dosai was delicious. The two curries were tasty and generous in size while the garlic naans were a perfect accompaniment. A number of Indian families confirmed the quality of the food. This is really good Indian. Am surprised with the... More

Lamb roganjosh was the best dish. Food was customised as per my request and was delicious. The restaurants got a great atmosphere for a great family night out.

Thanks to Ruchi's excellent food and prompt home delivery service, my neighbours and I enjoyed a successful neighbourhood curry night a few days ago. We ordered four vegetarian dishes, a fish and a prawn dish, (all main courses) naan, plain rice and coconut rice. We were all in agreement that the food was excellent. Reasonably priced, with free home delivery... More

The owner is pathetically arrogant and rude. Doesn't smile at any Indian customers. He communicates only through eyes and not through his mouth. Staff are polite but the owner is pathetic. He will be serving most of the times and offers a very poor service. Dosas in this restaurant just don't take like Dosas. They more taste like elastic thick... More

I have eaten here often. When you get a night with a good cook, the food is delicious. When you eat here on a night with a bad cook it is terrible. The last time we ate there it was terrible. However, usually it is either okay or very good. Southern Indian cuisine, usually good vegetarian food.

My husband and I went for a last minute dinner on a Tuesday night and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The restaurant is nicely presented (although please turn the TV off!), staff are helpful and knowledgeable and the food itself is lovely. The meals are of generous proportions and fresh and nicely spicy. We will be back.

I purchased a LivingSocial voucher then checked here. Eek what awful reviews! Was it even worth going? Never one to waste money and hoping the voucher was a ploy to show things had changed, we went with an open mind. Everything was lovely. The dosai was perfect. Each of the curries was extremely tasty. My vindaloo (often tasteless because it... More
