This is a fantastic restaurant in a great location (opposite the river). The food is authentic and yummy. Try the Butter Chicken. If you like it "hot", they can do that for you.

I really enjoyed the prawn madras curry with roti rather than with rice; i would have liked to have been able to order side dishes of some of the vegetable main choices, however this was not an option, which is a shame as it would have provided variety with the main course without the need to over - or under...

We ate here during a weekend away. The food itself was flavourful and enjoyable.

Great Indian food, I ate here twice as the staff were very friendly and the view across the road to the Marina was lovely, from the verandah.

Chicken tikka in cashew and almond sauce, lamb madras, rice, naan and a beer $55 which was great value for the quality of the food. No frills outside area got all the breezes and nice water views. Really enjoyed the meal, wish this restaurant was down the road from my place!
