Give this place a wide birth. Poor quality food. Small portions with mostly sauce and very little meat. We had the chicken vindaloo. It tasted fishy and slightly off. It's was dried out and stale. When we complained the waitress refused to get the owner as his English is worse than his cooking! Initially they were replacing the meal but... More

Very happy - great service. Came here with our two children. Indian is not my favourite cuisine, but I found our naan was that great balance between charred and soft and flaky. Our curries - butter chicken, vege korma and dhal were delicious and onion Bhaji beautifully crisp. Our chicken tikka was the only low point as it was very... More

We went here for the first time at the end of last year and it was brilliant. The lamb korma and cheesy naan were delicious. Went back here in June and found that it was equally as good as our first visit. Friendly service, food was great, very enjoyable dinner. And the kids loved everything too.

I've been here twice and each time has been great. The lamb korma is the best I've ever had, naan is gorgeous, waitresses are friendly. Can't believe the reasons for the one star reviews, it's always been fantastic here. I recommend it to everyone

Been visiting this restaurant every time we come to Mooloolaba for the past few years and have always had great experiences! The food is amazing, and the service is great and incredibly quick too, criminally underrated place!

Went there twice. First we ate in the restaurant. We ordered chicken tikka masala, butter naan, and spinach with cheese (forgot the name). The portion is big and super delicious too 😆 The second time we ordered the take away set. 1 curry (you can choose whatever curry), 1 naan, rice and mango smth. (Forgot the name again). We chose...
