This place is compact and a little unwelcoming for people getting take away. No take away menu at the front door and no where to sit inside when waiting for your take away. The lady is a little terse in her manner also. The food however speaks for itself. Full of flavour and a delight to eat. Lamb Rogan Josh... More

Service was poor / understaffed. Lady was rude due to feeling the pressure of a busy night. A little expensive for the quality of indian. Lamb Korma didn't taste like Korma.

A friend visiting who has Indian ancestry had his doubts when noting the homely interior and disclaimer on the menu cover that begs indulgence for the solo chef. The family-based restaurant seats maybe 30 and it was reasonably full on a Saturday night, with a steady turnover of takeaway pickups, so we were concerned we'd be waiting a long time.... More

Had the aloo kofta, and the butter chicken. The kofta was so good that the confirmed meat eater loved it.

Restaurant very basic looking, but food just beautiful. Naan bread just right. Butter chicken and Rogan Josh chicken I highly recommend. Just enough heat to make you aware you are eating indian food.

We had the best samosas we have ever eaten. Lamb korma and beef vindaloo with pappadums and garlic naan. All were excellent. We booked so were lucky. Food great, staff great, a real bright spot in this town. BYO which we like

We started with samosas cooked in a light chick peas batter followed by a goat curry and naan. Great flavour, quality ingredients and value for money. Equal with the best Indian restaurants around Sydney.

Takeaway from here the other night. Butter chicken was big chunks of chicken in lots of sauce. Flavour ok but not my usual favourite. Dal was good. Plain naan lovely - soft and tender.

We did take-away meals, as this is a very small restaurant, and without a booking they couldn't accommodate our group of eight.  The food was all amazing!  Highly recommend this to anyone that loves Indian food.
