Me and the wife booked and went on a Friday night, overall very disappointing. Chicken tikka was undercooked, the marinade that still clung to the meat was raw, I ordered lamb biryani, this turned up as a steaming plate of boiled rice mixed with curry, this is not biryani I told the manager so.

The place was packed, I guess if your not used to proper Indian or Pakistani food then you'll find this restaurant good. I'm used to London restaurants and proper authentic Indo Pakistani food.

Visiting from out of area and stumbled upon this amazing place. Flavours are amazing, staff friendly and attentive without being overbearing. Very reasonably priced. Can't wait for a return visit.

I'm not Indian but over the last 20 years have had extensive experience with Indian food including managing an Indian restuarant for 7 months. My expectations are high. I've been to this restaurant in Ettalong five times in the last few months. The food is consistently delicious except for the first time when one of the dishes was one I didn't know - from the Indo-chinese part of the menu. The restaurant is always busy, and the service is always great! I love this place! I very recently visited their second restaurant which just opened in The Entrance and, I was not disappointed - same delicious food, great service and atmosphere. I'll continue to be a regular!

Well, what an absolute and sensational surprise.
This fantastic,delicious and generous cuisine superbly presented and very reasonably priced. We were greeted at the door with personal service and smiles all around.
The staff are all young people who displayed a concerned and committed understanding of what personal first class hospitality service is.
The owner has nailed this, every member of the staff professional in every detail, this service far surpassed any top 5 star Sydney restaurant.
Ettalong, you have a real GEM. Can't wait to return. Mark & Cheryl
