Really nice atmosphere when you walk in.. candles at tables with dimmed lighting. Very calm and relaxing. Food is offered to eat in or take away. Butter chicken was very authentic and sizes of meals are great! Overall we would return. Thanks!

The reviews said this place would be great. They were wrong. The place at the atmosphere of a barn. I ordered take away- they said pick up in 20-25. I was there in 15, and it was ready, getting cold, :(. The butter chicken was ok, but the naam must be avoided. Ok for price, ok for taste. I won't... More

Dinner here with a dear friend. I have eaten Indian food in many places - including India and the food here is excellent and some of the best I have had. A gem in Launceston for sure. Highly recommended for food, value for money and excellent service.

I asked for extra hot and they delivered!!! This was my first time at this Indian restaurant and I reckon this is as good an Indian restaurant in Launceston I have been to.
