There are not that many restaurants in Cessnock so we thought we would try Indian at Hunter. When we arrived there was 2 people at a table finishing. Then it was only my husband and I and two other people that arrived just after us. So the restaurant was very empty around 8pm. Our order was taken promptly but it took a long time for the starters to arrive. They were very good- papadomes and samosas. We then waited quite awhile for our main courses. The lamb korma and lamb rogan josh were very tasty. When we were finished no check was brought to our table but had to get up and pay at counter. Although the food was good- I would hate to see the service if the restaurant was ever busy. Maybe the service was why it was not busy. If you are prepared to wait, you will enjoy the food.

WE had been for hunter valley for a vacation and we had been to this Indian Restaurant . Oh MyGod the food was so authentic and very yummy , mouth watering . We really enjoyed a lot, we asked for very hot and it was really hot .
It is a must go place for all who want to try authentic Indian Cuisine. If you plan to go to hunter valley we will visit for sure.
The chef and all the staff there are really good.

If you're not afraid of hot food, don't hesitate to ask for 'hot' or 'very hot' -- the chef will happily oblige. We had the Chennai Chicken (we requested it 'very hot') and the Goan Beef Vindaloo (we requested 'hot' though could have gone a tad higher with 'very hot' too). The flavours were excellent and the meat was good quality and well trimmed of any sinews, fat, etc.

The rice (vegetable fried rice) was 'interesting' and nothing like we'd ever had in an Indian restaurant before. The cheese naan was great.

The best Indian food I ever had in Australia ever since being here since last seven years. The roti really carries the flavour of been roasted in charcoal tandoor.
The curry tastes so different and so full of good flavour and freshness . Should never miss the opportunity. Go for it for the heavenly experience.
