I walked passed this restaurant on the way back to my hotel and decided I would eat there for dinner on a Monday night. Arriving a little later, there wasn't any other diners so I had the restaurant to myself (for a while). The service...More

Cannot say enough good things about this place! The staff were helpful and very polite and the food was excellent! By far the best Indian meal I’ve had in a very long time, very fresh and full of flavour. Will definitely visit again when I’m...More

Came here late on a Wednesday night and found the place empty. This, the dated decor (80’s), and the money lending sign almost put my friend and I off. Fortunately we went in and were not disappointed. Great service, reasonable prices and delicious food. Will...More

We've eaten here before and the food us consistently good. Everything is full of flavour. The chicken do pyaza - medium (the curries came with a choice of "hotness") was tender, juicy and delicious. The prawn vindaloo (hot) was heavenly!

Love Indian, walking along the Strand and came across this great Indian restaurant. Service was very quick and our host was very friendly. Then there was the food, it was so good. Price for lunch was also very good.

We sat out the back. Nice, but could decorate more to create better ambiance. Good service. We had Palek Panner and Paneer Tikka Masala. Probably the best curry in Townsville so far. Will go back. BYO always a bonus. Only $1.50 charge.

Staff will accommodate vegan requests, the vegan options are limited, but there are a few to choose from. Service is usually quite good. Can be busy on weekend nights, where parking near by, being off the Strand may be an issue.

Terrible slop is the only way to describe the food from this place. Completely uninspiring! The gravies are all almost the same, the veges are frozen, plain rice is extra, and rltge paneer quantities are dismal. Save your $ and buy a sausage to cook...More
