“Not a bad spot at all.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013

Went there with the kids and ordered accordingly.
Dishes reminded me of Brick Lane in London, not your usual copycat Sharwoods paste stuff you sometimes find.
Service was prompt and friendly.
I'll go back but it's got to include Chicken Tikka Jalfezi on the menu which I haven't had a decent one since my last from West Norwood Take away. ;(

“Disappointingly drab”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2013 via mobile

As a seasoned Indian restaurant -goer over many years I can fairly say that Sizzling Meals leaves a lot to be desired. I can put up with the plain decor and un-engaging service. However the food needs to be up to scratch. Two of our three mains were failures: tadka dal (far too runny and few lentils) and vegetable korma ( no veg, the consistency of soup and loaded with sugar). When the patron asked whether we enjoyed it I said we left it because it was far too sweet. Didn't even shrug his shoulders and wandered off.
Seems such a shame that the food is so low in quality. There does not seem to be any other Indian food restaurant in port douglas. There's a Thai restaurant only 40 metres up the road. Go there to get your spicy fix!

“Delicious vegetarian food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2013 via mobile

We came twice here. The food was really delicious and the owner was really friendly and helpful.

The food is a real taste from India. We only ate the vegetarian food which was rich in taste and flavour.

We found the prices far more reasonable than most of the places in Port Douglas.

Would definitely come back here if we are back in Port Douglas.

“Do not go there”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2013

Went here last night 22nd Nov 13. What a terrible place, definitely would not go there. Food was beyond spicey hot. Popodom dips only did mango and chutney. My rice was cold my main chicken tikka masala, was so hot spicey and besides was cold too. They did re do it, but still revolting. Then charged $90au. Disgusting. Was silly to pay but we did. Take my advice do not eat here
