“Not extraordinary Indian”
Reviewed November 23, 2013 via mobile

Went here based on all the excellent reviews but it is just like any other Indian restaurant. Food was good and came out quickly, menu is way too long so no need to bother with the long list of specials as by the time the lady finished speaking I couldn't recall anything she said. Good to go to just for a change but will stick to my local Indian for now :)

We had dinner here this evening and were very impressed. The food was delicious, especially the mixed tandoori platter! The portions were large and it was amazing value for money. Shame we don't live in Sydney!

“Great food and ambience”
Reviewed November 12, 2013

Was good to see an authentic Pakistani restaurant in Sydney with rich menu options to choose from. We went twice for dinner during our 5-day stay and it was worth the extra tavel.

On both occassions, it was very crowded. We were lucky to find a table after a little wait. To be safe better to make a reservation.
