“Really good Indian food”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

We read the reviews and we're hesitant but decided to try this restaurant anyway and we are very glad we did. The food was excellent and the service fine. We had the dal mahkni, butter chicken and the vegetable rice. We were asked whether we wanted it mild, medium or hot so the chefs are clearly prepared to cater to a range of tastes.

In the other reviews we noticed a comment about the ding of a microwave. We are pretty sure the bell is letting the staff know there is food ready to be delivered to the tables. To further support this, our vegetable rice had beautiful fluffy egg stirred through it. We don't think a microwave could deliver such fresh tasting food.

Give this one a try.

“Unprofessional & not particularly Indian”
Reviewed January 6, 2014 via mobile

Whilst on holiday in Esperance from Perth, my partner & I found this place online listed as a relatively new addition to the restaurant scene in the area. The photos & general reviews seemed okay.
Booked a table for 8pm & arrived on time. Only two tables of people were in the restaurant yet no tables were set for us & the waitress didn't even seem to remember taking my booking. She went away to make up a table taking our wine (it's BYO) & putting it in the fridge with their own soft drinks. Asked three times for an ice bucket, didn't get one. Had to get up to get my own wine from the fridge & glasses then at the end of the meal was charged corkage... for serving my own wine!
After about 25 minutes waiting, we ordered entrée & main course, by which time we were the only people in the restaurant. The waitress asked if we were sure that was what we wanted & tried to suggest something else. We said we were sure we wanted what we'd asked for. Entrée came out & was nice, onion bhaji & chicken tikka. A couple of minutes later the waitress came standing by our table asking whether we were ready for main course... we'd only just started entrée. The microwave kept beeping in the kitchen & there was a kid in the kitchen that was crying & shouting & she kept checking if we were ready. Main finally arrived & was overpowered by an incredibly strong flavour of lemon. No Indian flavours at all. The waitress was standing behind the counter next to our table texting on her mobile & shouting out that she finally got rice with her dinner from restaurant leftovers that night.
When we'd finished we got up to pay & were left standing at the counter for over 10 minutes while all staff were in the kitchen talking.
Inside looks nothing like he photos on here, quite dated & needs cleaning up.
Far from any good Indian food we've had before & really wouldn't recommend bothering to make the trip from the main street in Esperance.

“Probably one of the better options in Esperance”
Reviewed January 4, 2014 via mobile

While we found the restaurant scene in Esperance relatively underwhelming (not much choice in the mid range), this is probably one of the better places. A bit hidden so you don't come across it by chance. The food was fine and so was the value. The service personnel was a bit stressed (seemed like they helped out on the kitchen, too ) but did their best.

Reviewed September 29, 2013

Nice food and although I thought the potatoes were a little too (western) creamy, would definitely go back to ry more dishes.
