It is a regular spot for us...simple reason? Food is spot on all the time. We have eaten in and do takeaway. Can not fault either, so definitely try both. We are creatures of old habits...butter chicken, rice, rita and naan. Simlpy enjoy!

Ordinary Indian eatery.Place was busy & very noisey. We had the fish curry, butter chicken , rice & naan. This could be one of the worst fish curry I have tasted. You can't call this a butter chicken. Naan & rice was good. We had...More

Fantastic Indian food! Fresh, flavorful! Go with at least 3 people and do the 4 or 6 person menu. You'll get a series of Tapas-style courses, one more delicious than the next. It's BYOB, so grab a bottle from the market around the corner. (...More

This place was recommended to me by a family member so I'd thought I'd give it a go. It's very hard to find a great Indian place in this city and I think I've found the best Melbourne has to offer. Every dish is exquisite...More

Had dinner on Saturday night with family. Very disappointed, very small portions of mains. Like entree portion. Food tasty but will not recommend or go again. Looks to be cheating with high prices. Corkage $10 per bottle. Disgrace for quality of service.

Located in a salubrious part of Melbourne, this small but stylish restaurant serves excellent Indian food. Outstanding dishes were the Fish curry and Palak Paneer (one of the best we've tasted). The roti basket consisted of 3 different types of bread and tasted so yummy....More
