“Authentic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013 via mobile

Very busy on the Tuesday night we went however the food was well worth the wait
We had the lamb curry and it tasted delicious.
The kashmiri naan was one of the best I've had
The menu was extensive as was the wine list
A great meal maybe dim the lights a bit and add some color to the restaurant
Definitely worth a visit

“Well handled complain”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2013

We ate in the restaurant tonight.
My Prawn Curry was excellent but my husbands Beef Vindalo was disappointing.
It was dry and did not seem to be fresly cooked. We complained and the man in charge took the price off the bill. This was nice and we forgave them.
Service was very friendly.
I guess not much is better in Port Augusta.
We regretted not staying here. May be next time

“Well presented”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013 via mobile

Well presented rooms and great service, as we stay in port augusta often passing through, have never seen this place or here of it, will only recommend this place to stay there. Fantastic, on the corner of both main highways but maybe due to 1400km drive i didn't here a thing at night. Clean and recently upgraded and good to see a motel that spends $20 bucks and replaces the shower head cause. Shower is the main thing you need after a long days drive. Some spot to park with trailer but a little tight for the unexperienced.

“The best garlic naan, as an end of nullabor treat.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2013

We have stayed and eaten here before, and both times has been great. After a long drive from Eucla we enjoyed a dip in the motel pool and a an Indian meal which is as good as anything in the big cities. In fact, we think the freshly made garlic naan is the best we've had anywhere.
The motel is okay, and being out of town it is quiet enough but you can hear the trucks not too far away.

“Great Indian Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013

Beautiful building with an interesting history, pictures & story in the Restaurant. We ordered Indian food and it was amazing. The Manager was very professional & courteous, our food dishes again were delicious. Stayed overnight on our way back from a road trip, Hotel room was good, pool was even better on a hot summer day in Pt Augusta, big shade sail over the pool.
Only thing I would suggest as far as the Hotel Room goes, ask at reception about the lights outside of the rooms maybe even before you book a room. It was very hard to sleep with a VERY bright light outside the window (even with curtains shut) & we couldn't find a switch inside or outside of the room to turn it off & reception was closed by this time.
