I ordered a prawn curry that was so small it covered barely a third of a small plate. It took around 45 seconds to finish it and it was very bland. My wife ordered a cauliflower curry but only managed one bite. I was starving so I ate hers too. It was oily and disgusting and again, about half as much food as you'd expect from a child portion. After finishing two disgusting curries I was still hungry and got something further up the road. If you like small, disgusting curries then this place is great. If you like a normal sized meal that's edible then avoid like the plague.

this is a fave haunt of mine - for $5 you get a curry, some rice and a chapati, and some raita.

curries are fantastic, lovely spicy palak paneer, nice eggplant with potato dish, fish eaters will like the fish curry.

good wine list including Australian wines.

i don't however recommend the home delivery service much - have tried a few times and it takes FOREVER, plus the dishes are all at least $1 more expensive each, which is fine if it's just one or two of you, but if you're ordering for a bunch of people it makes for a ridiculous delivery fee.
