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...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....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...More

Went there 2 times this year, once as a couple, and once with friends. The food is below average, extremely oily, and sometimes very spicy. The oil used for frying their entrees mostly smells bad. The chutney always smells of stale coconuts. The portions of...More

As far as takeaways go, the food is poorly spiced and too salty. Even though our local, and we wanted to support the local industry, the quality was disappointing. We tried again 1/2 year later, forgetting the early experience, but no improvement. Is it that...More

This is about as far away from real Indian food as it gets. The flavours were bland and tasted of oxidised garlic - probably from a jar. There was no brightness of spices and it was hard to distinguish one dish from another. The prawns...More

From past 5 years I went to many Indian restaurants in Canberra but I never experienced this kind of terrible feeling. Waitresses are arrogant not friendly. Never smile and say thank you including the owner. Food is terrible. Everything is artificial flavours and pricey. My...More
