We waited about 1 hour. We arrived at 1845 and we were seated as a table of four by 1945. Service was fast and friendly.. Enjoyed the line up outside as were able to watch the chefs making the roti.. We all ordered a roti each and doz chicken skewers to share and a main meal each aswell (next time I'll share the main meal between two instead) we ended up having a leftovers as we were all stuffed full.. Good was full of spice and flavour each mouthful was delightful.. If your not a chilli fan do not order a curry they are closer to medium than mild.. But I like chilli so the more the merrier. The chicken curry was lovely as was the sambal prawns.. The deep fried chicken was also eaten.. The curries with the roti were okay the lentil was the preferred one.. And there was no room for desert so cannot comment on that.. All up $140 for four full adults and I will return again. It was worth the wait to me..

We've been in Sydney for a week, we've eaten out at about 12 places, and this meal just blew them all out of the water. I wish I'd eaten here for every meal. Apart from that it was half the price of most of our other meals. Do yourself a favour.

The 30min wait outside was well worth it. Food was excellent and price was even better. Warning about the desert..... you can't stop at one.

It was a great place to catch up with friends. The food was amazing especially the fried chicken and the Roti. Very busy though.

We had a lunch menu that is a discounted main dish that costs about 12 AUD. All the dishes were very good even if one of them was very spicy and it was not clear from the description. Try the Roti that is a kind of crepe that you can eat plain or in some flavour, as an entree or dessert.
