Kick off with a premium Kingfisher. The Veg samosa with the mint dipping sauce. Crack the BYO wine .. Peppery Shiraz. Butter chicken Delhi style, Goan fish curry, tandoori, Naan, rice... Yum! Your hostess will even serve and illuminate your cake. Top value, as always.

We visited 5 years ago with friends and had a marvellous meal.
This year our visit was a bit more low-key with an early entry on a Sunday night. with only two tables occupied.
The young waiter was most attentive without being at all intrusive.
The menu was extensive and varied.
Last year we visited India, and as we progressed down the country the hotel buffet meals seemed to take on a monotony regardless of their supposed contents.
The meals at Empire India were similar; they were somewhat tasty but had little to distinguish their separate flavours.

Pretty average Indian food.
The curries tasted a bit old and like they'd just been reheated (esp the vegetable korma). But the paneer pakora are nice.

While Indian Empire was one of the few restaurants open at Launceston on Christmas Day, we found its offerings rather mediocre.
The quality of the meat was less than impressive, while the sauces were rather runny. Our butter chicken, for example, felt more like tomato soup.
I can get better Indian for a fraction of the cost at my local food court.

Lover of foreign cuisine, mainly Indian and Thai, me and my girlfriend had a lamb dish each, the lamb fell apart without any fat what-so-ever full of flavours and large sized dishes. The naan accompanied very well, Lamb so tender with zero fat seems hard to find these days. Too top the night off the night the price was extremely reasonable definitely value for money. Flavours, size, service, price, and quality ticks my 5 star rating.
