This place has the best Indian food and Asian inspired dishes.The butter chicken was creamy with just the right spice, and naan bread to die for..then finish off with a glass of red by the out door fire pit.

We eat here late April 2017, the night was warm with the big personal outdoor heaters aimed on our family - we loved the setting amongst the mountains and had a lovely family dinner.

With grumpy overtired kids, take away was our only option, and this place was just next to our accommodation. Was really pleased with the curries and the naan, the spices were all beautifully balanced, the meat was high quality (no yucky gristly bits) and it...More

My family visited Franz Josef over Fall Break in April. The food here was amazing. It was a great combination of Indian & Chinese cuisines. My one daughter loves Indian food, but my other ones does not. This was a perfect restaurant for our family....More

I have tried lots of Thai food and this was the absolute worst I have ever had. I got a medium curry and there was no spice, no flavour, no heat. It tasted like someone had emptied a can of coconut cream into my meal...More
