Great food, but waited over 45 minutes to get it. Worth it once we had it though. Friendly staff, clean environment and easily accessible. Touch on the expensive side, but by the time we got our order we were too hungry to argue

I've lived in many places across Australia and I'm yet to find another place that even comes close to these guys! Their food is just amazing, so fresh and it tastes wonderful. Great customer service, I will always miss their mountains of free papadums!

My husband and I had a wonderful dinner. The staff are friendly and relaxed. The food was beyond our expectations, the chicken Korma was the best I have ever had, and the lamb Jalfrezi was incredible.

The beef was very tough. couldn't eat it. However they did refund the money. The vegetable curry was good.

Second visit to this restaurant in the main street of Portarlington. This visit saw both beef and prawn dishes along with rice and a naan bread. On both occasions the food was very good, and the menu extensive. Drinks are reasonably priced and eating here will not break the bank. Service is good and staff were friendly. Will eat here...

You could do better by buying frozen Indian meals at Woolworths..very ordinary. The staff were OK.. I left very disappointed. May be it was because of the holiday crowd??? Will not be back.

I have been to this restaurant a few times and it has consistently performed well on service and tasty indian fare. The menu has a good range of classic indian food at a reasonable price. It makes for a nice change from fish and chips, pizza or pub food during a holiday to the beach.

This was our favorite Indian restaurant but our last visit was a disappointment. Meals still taste great but the amount of meat is lacking. I don't like paying for the sauce. Surely a bit if extra chicken or lamb isn't that expensive. Take away meals are even worse mostly sauce.
