This would have to be the worse restaurant I have ever eaten at. The service can not be called service as they didn't service us. I had to ask to order to begin with. (Should have left then) The food was that bad we couldn't eat it. The chicken smelt funny and was extremely dry. Physically not possible to eat!... More

We ordered Tandoori Mix Platter, Chicken Tikka Masala, Dal, Nan and Rice. The food was adequetly spiced up and tasted yum. The rice quality can be improved. Good part was garam masala was not added too much. Ambience was okayish.

We were in early and we were very quickly served but as the place filled up the service was noticeably slower. We ordered one of the banquets which was very good food and very well priced. The food was spiced according to our taste and there was a really good selection. The only disappointment was that they had run out... More

Tiny portions of meat/chicken in their curries. For this alone I would skip visiting this restaurant.

The menu promised sides like salad and yoghurt but apparently you forgot to put this in ? After a meal i expect to be full and happy but now im just upset, still starving and nearly... More

We have been to this restaurant a few times two years ago and loved it, even wrote an excellent review for in on trip advisor. However our recent visit to it was a HUGE LET DOWN. The management has changed for the worst, we took takeaway and my brother visiting from overseas ordered/picked up the food. When we got home... More

"Smashing good indian fare" This restaurant more than richly deserves accolades as one of the best. Every item in our dinner was superb from hors d'oevre of desert. Given the complexity of fine indian foods, the flour chefs at work in the kitchen are masters. The non- gas oven works its magic on nans and tandoori selections. The eggplant curry... More

Neighborhood Profile
Lygon Street
If you want real parmesan, cut from the block, grated over your pasta with a twist of style, this is the place. Until recently, this neighborhood was home to the notorious ‘Carlton Crew,’ a pseudo mafia who started their day with a local espresso. They are gone, but the espresso still runs strong in this Little Italy which has something for everyone. Starched white tablecloths, candles, pizza the way they do it "back home" and maybe even a bit of amore. The number of gelato choices will leave you in a state of indecision and wide footpaths, big awnings and a sea of packed tables makes this al fresco dining experience a continental buzz. Even if you’re not eating, it’s worth the stroll just for the people-watching, which, of course, is an Italian tradition.
