“Awesome Indian food”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

choice of Modern Australian. . . . . or even better Authentic Indian. Everyone in our group and at nearby smaller tables have seemed comfortable and to be enjoying their food choices. A popular local venue far better than many big cities I've been in including New Delhi -Better tha.many big city restaurants : Indian menu. Can share a banquet. or have individual dishes or mix it up. They were flexible! I've. been there a couple of times with big groups and standards/service have been consistent

“Suitably Afghan”
Reviewed July 18, 2012

The restaurant is housed in the old hotel that used to service travellers filling up with water from the last standpipe before heading north into the desert. The Afghan Cameleers would set off from this place and suitably this restaurant serves up some great curries! Try the goat curry, you won't be disappointed.

“Nicest place to eat in Port Augusta”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

There is something for everyone on the menu - or two menus in one that is - a standard a- la-carte menu, and a full Indian menu. If you happen to be vegetarian, there is really nowhere else in this town. Having eaten here on several occasions, the food was great but we only ever chose from the Indain side which was absolutely authentic, and absolutely delicious.
The building where the restaurant is has a lovely older feel, with a large uncluttered dining area which, despite it being popular never felt over filled or loud - in fact a great place to have a meal and a conversation. Not overpriced, good service - we did call ahead.
The Standpipe is at the edge of the 'west side' of town, with their restaurant in the main (original) building of this relatively sprawled out accommodation facility. Drive in (longish entry road), and look for the restaurant signs as you arrive. They are not cliquey about whether you are a guest or not, just welcoming - as you would expect from any professionally run restaurant.

“Terrific value, Excellent food”
Reviewed June 29, 2012

The service is fine, the food choices are rich and the cooking first class.
Wine costs are also reasonable making the meal very economical for two at about $75.00 for mains and beverage.
