This is a great restaurant if you have dietary restrictions. Everything is clearly marked on the menu and the wait staff is happy to check with the kitchen if you have an allergy that isn't listed. We had the Vegetable Pakora, which was delicious. Traditionally, we don't eat a lot of fried foods, but this was worth it, especially with... More

I kept on going to this restaurant minimum once a week during almost a year.... and it was always an amazing experience, as per the food itself as for the courtesy. They have their own delightful species mixed in different ways so you can buy also buy it in this format. I loved how Roger alsways talked about their food... More

The key (to me) to this restaurant is to appreciate all the masalas are made on the premises. This brings an authentic style and taste to the dishes served here setting them apart from other indian restaurants. The dhuwan is wonderful. The front of house staff are terrific. Value for money plus a difference. Well done Rogers Kitchen.

After visiting New Zealand and Australia for over 2 weeks, the service was unusually fast. The food was very good and resonantly priced as well. The waiter, and son of Roger was also very good looking!

Fantastic takeaway menu, food was delicious, the spices are authentic. The service was very friendly and fast, great value for money. They also have a lovely spice shop where you can buy the spices they use. Lots of people were dining in. I'll definitely be back.

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.
