“Wouldn't recommend this restaurant”
Reviewed March 29, 2014

As a group of teenage girls, we were all extremely disappointed with the service we received. Our drinks took 20 minutes to be served and when served, were flat. Our main courses then took an hour to arrive and other customers were coming in and being served before us. Extremely disappointed with the service we received and won't consider coming here again.

“A hidden gem”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

Though local, we've never visited the Indian Plaza before, and walked in on a whim after leaving the excellent & quirkily retro independent cinema, the Alhambra, with which it shares a building (look up and you'll see the restaurant's sloping ceiling - the cinema's floor). Our impulse was well-rewarded; fabulous food, with an unusual and varied specials menu, fresh ingredients, great service, lovely staff and extremely good value. What more could you want, especially if you've just taken advantage of the over 60s deal next door and seen a movie for a fiver. Best combination night out in Penrith, and OK, so it's a small rural town, but there's plenty of competition.

“eat here ! you wont be dissapointed”
Reviewed March 20, 2014

if you like indian food , forget the other restaurants in town this is by far the best you will get.
prices are in comparison with other Indians in penrith but that's where the similarity's end, the food at indian plaza is in my opinion, far superior to the other restaurants.
the meal I ate was the royal thawa, it arrived on a sizzling pan, the sauce was rich and tasty. you could really taste the fresh herbs and spices used.
I found the staff friendly and welcoming .
if you have not tried it yet, I would definitely recommend eating here you will not be disappointed.

As visitors to the area my wife and I have eaten at many restaurant and found the Plaza to be the best Indian in the area. It had a pleasant atmosphere, good service and an open kitchen, the food is always fresh and tasty.

“Best Indian in Town - Fresh Ingredients”
Reviewed March 17, 2014

Have been to many Indian restaurants in many places, the food here is by far the best. You can taste the fresh ingredients, herbs and spices, which they use and food is definitely cooked fresh. Sometimes you may have to wait a while for your meal if they are busy but the food is definitely worth the wait. Staff are very pleasant and friendly and will always try and accommodate you even if you haven't made a booking. Great value for money and wouldn't go anywhere else for an Indian meal.
