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

Great food. Medium is pretty spicy. We enjoyed the coconut rice and the garlic naan. Chicken tikka was good too. Each dish was quite different in flavour which was great. Will definitely be back next time I'm in Townsville.

Eaten here a few times now and the food is amazing. I would say it was one of the best Indian restuarants in Townsville. Not expensive meals that are a generous size and you generally don't have too big a wait. The staff are always...More
