Interesting restaurant. Food is served in compressed paper plates/bowels. I am not certain of the justification but it would certainly cut down on the cleaning. The food is good quality and there is plenty of it - the servings are reasonably generous. The staff are friendly and helpful and the service is quite prompt - at least it has been... More

Well the entree was very small but the main courses made up for it. I had butter chicken and my wife the vegetable curry. We had side dishes of rice and naan bread. The bread great. The butter chicken was a big serve and very tasty, although probably too much tomato paste rather than tomato(I use fresh tomato only at... More

We were staying in an apartment across the road, could smell the spices and decided we would have to give it a try! When we arrived the restaurant was at 75% capacity, but the service remained friendly and genuine. There are plenty of options on the menu, including some for those who cannot eat chilli. We decided on a couple... More

Just Wow! Ordered a large take out to cater for a small gathering of friends. Ordered it online and was delivered promptly. Really really nice Indian food cooked with local ingredients where possible. A little pricey but it was worth it. We'll definitely try it again and I'll recommend anyone to try it. You won't regret it if a fan... More
