Love this place. Awesome range of tasty salads and hot food. The servings are huge and so cheap. We share a plate between 2 for lunch and its enough.

Have been going on and off for several years. And so has the establishment. Honestly people, the cabinets look atrocious. There are always flies buzzing around because the tables aren't cleared quickly or wiped down with any basic care. The other day my food was plopped on my plate splatter gun.

I love this place and make a special trip here each time I'm in QLD. The menu and options don't change that much, but they don't need to. They have some wonderful fresh salads, beautiful koftas and curries, the lasagne and potato bake great as are the desserts. The mango lassie is worth getting but make sure you save room... More

Quick service, i.e. hot curries or tasty vegetable combinations. Plenty of fresh salads so you can mix your choice of food with light crunchy snacks. Lots of variety to choose from and healthy vegetables combinations.

We love the vegetarian food at this place. It's always busy but the line moves very fast. The staff are always really friendly. You can eat in or takeaway it's not far from the water so there are some nice places to sit and eat. James street is a great street to shop so parking can be hard to find... More
