This place seems to receive quite mixed reviews. I'm happy to say that my experience was very good. The food was very tasty, including the much-maligned butter chicken (not sure what the writers of other reviews were expecting from this dish, no it's probably not Indian, but it tasted good to me). Every dish was nice. We had the banquet... More

We have been getting take away from here for quite a few years now and the food is always delicious! Tonight we had the sheek kebab, garlic chicken, beef madras, aloo gobi, and garlic naan and thoroughly enjoyed all of them. The madras and aloo gobi had the perfect amount of spice without being overpowering and we have a great... More

My husband and I were regulars there and went for special nights out. We found some metal in one of the curries (tin foil) the waiter didn't do anything and we were charged full price. We have not been back.

This used to be a thriving little restaurant in Ringwood a few years ago. In a great, location, always busy, amazing food and great service. It moved to what can only be classified as the industrial wasteland section of Ringwood. We ordered take-away twice over a couple of months. Both times when we went in the place was empty, the...

We have had many meals here and I have never had a bad one. The curries are rich and saucy and very generous in portion size. The atmosphere of the restaurant is OK and one can have an intimate meal here. It also is BYO so that is an advantage if you prefer your own selection.

I ordered takeaway and waited 1hr for my food.....the service was terrible and very unorganised.After the wait was disappointed that the food was very average.Chicken Tilkka was dry and bland,the samosas were mushy and oily and all food was Luke warm.If you want tasty Indian in this area go around the corner to Taj Agra.

This is our go to any time we want Indian. Reliable, always tasty food and fairly well priced. The vindaloo is always perfect and each dish has always been tasty and full of flavour.

Having had New Years eve dinner at Phoolwari, we decided to try their home delivery. Both were the same in amount, content and the cost was excellent. Just make sure that you are up for the 3 chili heat- I eat raw chili regularly and this was a challenge- next time I will ask for 2. Thanks to the chefs,... More
