We ordered just before 7pm and the order arrived after 9pm. We live 15 mins away from the resteraunt. Even after 2 phone calls assuring the order was "only 20 minutes away" we still had to wait over an hour for it to arrive. This is terrrible customer service and I wouldnt ever bother ordering from this place again.

We ordered home delivery. We waited over an hour and a half and had to make two phone calls to find out when the food would be delivered. Each time we were told the delivery boy was on his way, we live 5 minutes away from the restaurant. It was only when we said we would cancel the order if... More

Hi Charlie, Our deepest apologies on this error. There is no excuse for ruining your evening, but we were severely understaffed 3rd week of August. We had to get on-call staff, who wasn't the best in routing things properly, especially at peak hour. We're sorry about this, and have made amends to not get stuck on a busy night like... More

Everything we ordered was very good, the sizzling lamb entree and the curries were great - generous portions, saffron rice and naan bread also very good. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere with good lighting and efficient service. It's located in a shopping strip with easy parking.

Liz - Thank you for your kind words! Means a lot when a happy dinner tells us what they liked most. The Lamb Entree is a hit favourite among the regulars, its just the right amount of spice and sizzle ;) We'll see you back very soon! More

Not the most authentic Indian food you can find in Sydney. The butter chicken tastes like it's been cooked in commercially sold tomato sauce and is far too tomato based for my taste. I usually order a medium curry at Indian restaurants as medium strength is usually quite palatable, but the medium strength here was really hot. The lamb dish... More

Hi African Queen, Sorry to hear that the curry wasn't the way you normally like it. There are so many different ways to make the same curry, and we always encourage our diners to have a chat with us if they like something specific with their food. Its so easy to customise your curry your way. Have a chat to... More

Four of us went, we tried goat, chicken, prawn curries, all were excellent. Rice and breads were a perfect accompaniments. Poppadoms were the only let down.

Ate on a $39 three course plus wine and sides voucher. This was phenomenal value - every dish was delicious, the sizzling vege entree dish was incredibly jealous, and even the desserts, usually the least interesting at most Indian places, were both fabulous. Also worth noting was the service - everyone we spoke to was charming and welcoming. Highly recommend,... More

Have been visiting and ordering from here for a couple of years now. Excellent for both dining in and for take-away/home delivery. When dining in, service is very friendly and attentive. Nice décor and atmosphere. When getting home delivery, service has always been fast and efficient. Fantastic choice of meals on the menu. The naan bread selection is awesome. Food... More

My husband and I decided to come to this restaurant because we passed by it a couple of days before and saw that it was packed with people and there were a lot of people from India eating there, so we thought the food must be good!... We were so right! The prawns and chicken we had were delicious! The... More

Unfortunately a restaurant in decline. This Indian restaurant has been around as a local for a long time now. It's always empty and the food is very disappointing. Service is the only redeeming factor

Very attentive staff in this popular small resturant. Decor and music set a nice atmosphere. The food unfortunately was only ok but the pleasant staff made up for that. We started with a generous share platter that came out sizzingly and intising. It was large enough that if you had a serve of rice each with it it could suffice... More
