Enjoyed a great night out at Rogers Kitchen. Having eaten at some very authentic restaurants in Sydney we were very happy when Rogers Kitchen surpassed them all. The service was exceptional and the food was wonderful. Overall a great night out.

Our visit to Roger's was not our first choice but for various reasons that is where we ended up. We do eat Indian food regularly and having worked in India have some appreciation of the cuisine. On arrival we read the sign outside which said closed on Tuesday and it was Tuesday..... but on closer inspection the lights were on... More

Thank-you for the acknowledgement. you really know about Indian food because most of the people are still discovering the real taste, which is really hard to find because majority of us like sugar,cream and spices and most of the Indian chef do not have comprehensive knowledge of spices and ingredients they use, most of the time in western countries they...

Roger and his team make dining easy and fulfilling. Having been to other restaurants of similar menu locally, Roger's is our preference. Whether you want to dine in or takeaway. You can even get your Mango Lassi to go! Purchase your own products from Roger's range to do it yourself at home.

When I first started going to Rogers Kitchen the food was amazing. But I do think it has been very slowly going downhill. The lounge area is dirty and the couch is broken. I had a Paneer Makhani and the paneer was definately off it was inedible. The curry was totally watered down and not thick and creamy as it... More

After Reading your other reviews and reinspecting my lounge. I did not find my couch is broken at all and also some how you have lots of bad experience with other businesses which you have mentioned in your trip adviser reviews. It may be wiser if you ever visit us again please let us know, so we can take extra... More

Lovely friendly restaurant with delicious food and good value. Not expensive. A fantastic Indian spice, chutney and everything else you could want to cook an Indian shop attached. We will be returning soon.....

We called in to dine at this restaurant with friends, having heard the food was authentic and tasty. Whilst we were waiting we all thought it was quite jaded and grubby throughout the dining room, so choose to eat elsewhere. I suggest this place employ a cleaner with a decent bottle of Handy Andy.

Very good curry, super welcome the first time we visited, Roger even came and sat with us and had a chat! The second time we were recognised and welcomed back. We loved the spice shop and went home with a few of Rogers spice mixes which are delicious! Love the gluten free food and easy to read menu. Look forward... More

Got some takeaway from Roger's after a day of wineries. Service was superquick. Food was delicious and reasonably priced. Great place for a spicy meal after a day in the vines!

I've travelled a lot of the world and eaten curry in most places. Rogers Kitchen delivered the best curry I have had in a very, very long time and Roger himself was really friendly explaining the food and cooking methods. Make sure to spend some time in the shop as well....they chef's curry paste is outstanding for making your own... More
