Food was fantastic. The service was lacking No one on the Gold Coast opens late for dinner. They seem to shut early so they were quickly getting us out the door packing up chairs and tables. We'd still return as the food was great.

We ate here on our first night in Coolangatta. We ate between 5-6pm and they had an early bird special where all curries except seafood curries were $12. The food was delicious and it's boy drinks. A BWS is conveniently located across the road so we bought some wine, beer and soft drinks and fed a family of 4 for... More

Nothing to write home about but no complaints either. Like other reviews have said, the food is mild, probably by design, to cater to the public; but the menu specifically says "if you want more than mild/moderate spice, you must ask for it". So if you like it more robust, just ask. The service was good, the wait wasn't too... More

Spent the night in tweed and wanted a quick dinner. Got spring rolls butter chicken and beef madrasi and 2 garlic naan. The spring rolls we ok but obviously not house made. The curries were good. But what spoiled the whole dinner was the garlic naan. They use jar garlic. So I'm sitting here now over an hour after we... More

We arrived in the area around dinner time on a Friday and set off from our hotel to find a nice place to eat. We found ourselves at this quaint little Indian restaurant and were delighted. The food was tasty and there was plenty of it. Really reasonably priced too. The lady attending to us made helpful menu suggestions and... More

Was attracted by the $12 early bird deal. Couldn't eat most of my meal.. Didn't enjoy it. And felt ill after. Won't go back.

Terrible meal last night that has left me and my partner both so ill with suspected food poisoning, We shared a chicken and a vegetable curry Very disappointing as food isnt cheap and no one enjoys a day spent in the bathroom.

Picked up a takeaway. Food had no flavor full of water naan was hard as rock . Advertised free rice but they charged for it. Boycott. Chef babysitting in the kitchen so unhygienic.

Placed a take away order for 1/2 Tandoori chicken, chicken saagwala (chicken in spinch), naans and rice. Tandoori chicken was raw from inside. They use food colouring in Saagwala instead of actual spinch. All naans were raw from the middle. Owner/chef had total disregard of the feedback when called. Put the food in a bin. Completly waste of money and... More
