Visited Aug 23 with 3 others. Great food - we had the Indian menu but there was also a good range of other available. Good wine and setting is upmarket in an historic building. Prices reasonable and not over the top. Service good although they were pressed for time. Would always go there when in Pt Augusta

We stayed overnight at their motel so found the restaurant convenient for both dinner and breakfast. We didn't actually realise they were and Indian restaurant, so that was a pleasant surprise. Their menu has both Indian and "pub style"food. My husband tried the chicken tikka marsala, and I, the Goan fish curry. Both were medium hot but we both agreed... More

We stayed in an Executive room - not quite sure what made it 'executive' though; possibly the slippers and bathrobes provided? The DVD player did not work - however it was fixed after the second call to reception; the bathroom needs some updating - it was clean and had all the usual toiletries supplied; the restaurant was closed on Sunday...

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.
