A lovely experience overall. The staff were friendly and attentive, and the food was beautiful. We had Handi Goat and Aloo Ghobl (cauliflower), and the cook came out later to ask how it was. It was heartening to see so many people of Indian heritage dining there, and the menu had dishes that I haven't seen before. The food was... More

Poor service and poor timing. Chef sick, so 1.5 hours to get your main. My Indian friend from Karella not happy Jan. Dont come here if you are in any sort of rush. The food is not good and being next to a bowling alley not the best location.

We had dinner here three times while staying in the Quest Apartments which is only a 4 minute walk. The place just had new owners and may not look like much, but we had some of the best Indian food ever tasted. Everything is very fresh, delicious, tasty and well priced. The owners are super friendly, only the girl that... More

Great Indian food tailored to suit everyone's taste. Good for large group of people although service can be a little disjointed.

This restaurant is next to Alice's Dust Bowl and does meals deals/specials. I go and order food while I bowl. At the counter I order the special $11 curry that is advertised everywhere inside their restaurant and inside the dust bowl. The cashier/waitress charges me $18. I tell her no it says 11$ on the menu, and that I refuse... More

So everything was nice during my experience dining here, until one of the employees who was wearing a middle eastern pajama kept coughing near the kitchen and then when he got up to stand in the dining room he reached his hand in the back of his pants to scratch his butt (or bum) in front of us! Not only... More

Have been here twice. Only ever a few other people dining in. The service is good, however meals do take a while to come out. Our second visit wasn't such a long wait. Love love love the food. Butter chicken and chicken korma are both delicious. Do yourself a favour and give it a try.

There are a number of pizza and Indian restaurants in Alice that serve great food and provide great service. The red tomato certainly needs to improve its service if it is going to survive in a small town like Alice Springs.
