WOW. Went here for the first time last night, and you can see why it has been going strong for over 30 years. We had a large group and the staff were excellent - the place was packed but everyone was well looked after. We had the banquet entree and it was absolutely beautiful. The curry was also fantastic, and... More

Lots of good reviews on this place, must say they have excellent service and very professional. The curry is very authentic Indian so if you get the butter chicken be ready to expect the taste to be different from your local up the road shop. It was a nice touch when they asked if we were here for leisure or... More

Not that authentic Indian food. The mains were like a home cooked food, we dine out to get that authentic flavours mastered by chefs. I cooked feel the masalas in my mouth and grinding down.

My daughter & I popped in here for the $12 lunch special mainly to get out of the cold wind. It rurned out to he a great choice - for $12 you get 1 main, 1 naan and rice. Choice of approx 16 mains including 6 vegetarian. Good size portion & very good service. Worth a visit.

Just go for lunch and have Butter Chicken or Chicken Tikka Masala with garlic naan and any rice. The staff is also super friendly and helpful.

A group of us went there on a Friday night. The restaurant was busy so there was a bit of delay between each course, but nothing too bad and we didn't mind as we were not in a rush. What we found really helpful was that they put together a selection of starters for us, which were great, so all... More
