I ordered the Beef Curry, with Rice and Dahl, and pickle chutney. Absolutely delicious. I eat there at least once a week. Decor leaves a bit to be desired but the food is amazing. Can highly recommend. The staff are super friendly too.

Very small and run down looking restaurant which was a bit off putting at first. However excellent curries and portions were large.

My husband, daughter and I ate there for dinner. I was hesitant at first because there was noone else there. I like bustling restaurants as I always take this as meaning it's popular and good. The place could do with a good scrub and decor update and I think they could improve the vibe with some music as it was... More

We went to this restaurant after checking reviews on Tripadvisor and thought to have Bangladeshi cousin there but actually this is an Indian restaurant. They served chicken biriyani which was defrosted and rice was under cook. Prawn item was served freshly cooked and for that we only manage to finish our food. Waiters were well mannered. Not recommended if someone... More

Don't need fancy! Just want good food. Very basic SMALL restaurant. No heating in winter, so I'm thinking no cooling in summer. Price & Value . Makes up for it.

This is a very unassuming place. From the outside, one would be forgiven for passing it by, but once confronted with the generous dishes of authentic food, you will sing its joy for a long time. Very reasonable and very palatable. I've been twice this week and thoroughly enjoyed the food. Not your average Indian/Australian experience.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving up age-old recipes. The lighting may be unromantic, the patrons loud, and the service no-nonsense, but the food is sensational.
