If you like northern Indian cuisine you will love this place. It ticked all boxes on a cold winters night. The dishes were fresh, tasty and different from the standard Indian menus seen in Sydney. Give it a try. A great find.

After two great entrees we didn't need a main so one more entree was enough. Great value and good food.

Dinner for 10 people, pre-ordered and shared. The goat rogan josh nearly caused a squabble. It was so good. There wasn't enough! The palak paneer is to die for

We enjoyed our meal but have had other Indian meals that were more to our liking in our home town of Lithgow. Service was very good even though they were very busy on the night.

Your question has been answered already, but a tip is that if you are going on a Friday or Saturday night make sure you reserve your table. The place fills up pretty quickly and I've seen "walk-ins" turned away many times.
