There are a cluster of restaurants within stones throw of it so you'll have your choice of a range of places. If you happen to choose this one then you'll be getting a solid Indian offering. The menu has... More

The food tasted like flour. Very minimal taste. The cheese Naan was hard and flavorless too. So very disappointed.

My friend and I enjoyed an authentic Indian meal today 22/3/16. Starter consisted of chicken tikka and vegetable samosa followed by butter chicken, Handi beef curry accompanied by garlic naan and free saffron rice. YUM BYO with no corkage charge which was a great bonus. Plus you get to take away any leftovers!

Great tasting Indian food, very authentic. The taste and smell brought me back to India. Service was quick even though they were extremely busy. The food was not changed for western taste so if you don't like spicy this is not the place for you.

Thank Shane Vels T
