“Close to being one of the worst Indian take-away meals ever”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

I expected more after reading the reviews and noticing the prize winning rosettes.

Underwhelming, greedy portions awaited us after longing for a good Indian take away. Unauthentic cuisine-I could have produced sonething very similar with a stir in sauce.

Naan breads were ok but nothing special.

“Expensive and dull Cafe!”
Reviewed July 2, 2012

Too many raving stickers on the front plastic curtain. I wonder how they got it . Dull and boring atmosphere with matching bland and very ordinary but expensive food. But the Nan was fresh and soft but I can't say that about the dhall. It looked very stale as well. I do not know how many days it was sitting in their fridge. Normally anybody can make this simple dish so easily but this multi awarded cafe can not do. They don't serve drinks. I had to get a bottle of wine from the near by bottle shop. I had only half a glass of wine and I wanted to take the balance with me. I was surprised to hear a very cheeky comment from the owner that this is only BYO and not a TYO as if I am taking his wine.

“Excellent..been many times and the food is always awesome”
Reviewed July 1, 2012

I have eaten at the Magic of India many times in the last ten years..it was the first Indian in Noosa and still remains the best in my opinion, standards are always very high in every area and the breads arrive straight from the Tandoori Oven they are always excellent. the owners are very friendly and accommodating in every way and I would recommend a visit. i have visited Indian and lived in the UK and rate this restaurant very highly.

“The REAL Indian Restaurant”
Reviewed June 27, 2012

I'm a local Noosa girl and I have been eating at Magic of India for over 12 years. There is another restaurant across the road which has completely ripped off the look and feel of Magic, right down to almost identical takeaway menus!

If you're reading negative feedback, it's probably for the other restaurant (holiday makers get confused) - I have NEVER had a bad meal at Magic of India and I would easily have eaten here more than 100 times over the years.

Inder and his team always provide brilliant service and amazing food. Don't hesitate to dine here, this is the REAL Indian restaurant in Noosa!
