On a recent trip to Cairns we ordered a pick up meal, we were so impressed we ordered a delivery a couple of nights later. Tastiest Indian we've had in ages. Great servings with the family deal and very flavoursome.

We enjoy the food here but the service from staff very poor. We order drinks and foods but we never been served the drinks. Had to ask for twice when it wasn't that busy. At the end we have been charged twice for drinks. Not well presented foods also Price is not reasonable compare to other Indian restaurants.

I think we got a new waitress. We watched her push chairs in for 20 minutes while we tried to order. The service peeps seemed pretty switched on though. I liked the naan and the curry but was not a fan of the chicken.

My wife and I had dinner here during a recent trip to Australia. We had a very disappointing experience. We went at about 7pm on a Tuesday night. There were a few people there, but the place was not terribly busy - perhaps two or three other tables, but for some reason the service was just terrible. After sitting down,... More

we went for late lunch, and no naan however, provided us with masala and muhkni with rice. There is nothing special about their food, however, being close to the sheriden street, a good spot to people watch and relax while waiting for food.
