First tried them a year ago & came back this year; they are just as good. Wonderful recommendations from the crew- we had tandoori prawns, lamb in spinach purée, chicken curry & veg briyani. All the spices were perfectly blended into a spectacularly tasty meal; left our tummies feeling nice & cosy in this wintry weather. Totally value-for-money! Unforgettable!

They were busy when we arrived, but service was still slow. I asked for water three times. We weren't asked how hot we wanted the food, and mine was extremely undo icy, boring actually. I would not eat here again

We were staying in Olinda for a week. Not many restaurants are open on a Monday night so we went to Indian by Nature. There was only one other couple there and the decor is basic. The food, however, was fantastic. A great range on the menu of mild to hot dishes with a good selection of vegetarian and meat... More

There is plenty of choice here for people following vegetarian or vegan diets and the waiter was very helpful with choices. I ended up having a pumpkin curry which was delicious and a large portion. They also cater for all spice tolerances and my partner was very pleased with his hot chicken curry. There is plenty of parking and you... More

I must say I am from the outset that I am reviewing this based solely on the takeaway that I've ordered here on numerous occasions, as I have never sat down for a meal here. The service is always prompt, the staff are lovely and the food is delicious! They also do a family pack which is extremely good value.

The service was friendly and prompt. The food was delicious but the portions seemed smaller than expected. We will certainly return, but will order an extra dish from their wide variety.
