Madras lamb curry was fantastic. Generous serving of rice, and garlic naan completed a really exceptional meal.

We settled on this place because the other two restaurants we tried were full. It wasn't busy here but it should have been. The food was delicious and the service was very attentive. We shared the mixed platter for starters and it would almost have done me for a main. Followed that with a lamb korma which was very nice... More

This restaurant boasts to have Thai food and Chinese as well. The choice for Thai food was red or green curry, for Chinese fried rice. Not surprisingly the choice for Indian food was pretty limited as well, but the quality of the food was pretty good.

The food at the Copper Pot is excellent Indian cuisine to refuel after the Old Ghost Road. It's not hot (medium is mild) quite authentic and the restaurant is nicely furnished. I have a dairy intolerance and they made my curries without cream. The drinks selection is more than adequate but you can also bring your own.

We were a group of 6, had the restaurant to ourselves on a Tuesday evening, served with a smile and attention. We ordered from the set evening menu and we're not disappointed. All the meals were perfect, and soooo much food for such little cost. Some people struggled with the spice "medium" being too hot but my "hot" madras was... More

Great place to have a quiet dinner. They have an extensive menu which can be made mild to very hot. Do have a BYO (bottled wine only) licence. But check price of corkage (ours was $7.50 a bottle - bit steep). Food is priced very reasonable and service is excellent. Will go back again.

Thank Ted V
