We went here specifically to try the Saltbush bhunna gosht, and were not disappointed, it was excellent! We also had the Beef madras, and the Butter chicken, which were both delicious. The staff were attentive and friendly, with little touches like offering a takeaway bag for our leftover naan and roti. Would definitely go again, if only they were not... More

We couldn't fault this Motor Inn. The accommodation was very clean and comfortable with helpful friendly staff. The restaurant was such a pleasant surprise. We had the Northern Indian curries and the usual accoutrements. The beef vindaloo was hot and spicy, the goat curry was beautifully tender. Pleasant and efficient staff topped off a most enjoyable dinner after a long... More

Good ambience despite large number of tables spread through several rooms. Excellent seemingly authentic Indian menu (and basic Australian menu also available). Good service. I had the Prawn Mallabar, excellently presented.

One of the few places open after 8pm in Pt Augusta. North Indian and Australian cuisine. Enjoyed the Indian flavours and my rump steak was good. Fellow guest was very disappointed at the scotch Fillet Steak considering the price.

We enjoyed a lovely Indian dinner on our stopover in Pt Augusta. This is a short walk from our accommodation. Beautiful building, very fine furnishings and a lovely bar area for pre dinner drink. Service was very helpful, pleasant and friendly. Recommended.

I have been here a dozen times over the years, the menu hasn't changed that much but it doesn't need to, it has a large variety of Indian dishes and other pub type foods. It has a quality selection of reasonably priced local wines and the staff are always extremely helpful. It is surprisingly nice restaurant on the edge of... More

Meal with friends travelling through on a very busy Saturday night (there was a coach in). Staff were attentive without being imposing. Food was very good and served without a prolonged wait.

We stayed in the hotel for 1 night passing through Pt Augusta. As we arrived late, we decided to dine at the attached restaurant. Our service was very good, several waiting staff appeared at various times and all were very friendly and accommodating. We all had the Indian menu, which was very tasty and plentiful. The wine list is limited,... More
