Service was just OK but the daal and naan were exceptional! Recommend going for a meal if you're in the area.

We read the reviews before coming here and in my experience those calling the manager rude were unfair, we found her polite and welcoming, if not effusive. The reviews raving about the food however, were spot on. After a mild curry in Sydney I ventured for a vindaloo and it was beautiful. The naan was the best I've had in... More

Do yourself a favor and find another restaurant! Firstly ignored when we arrived for several minutes! Every table not occupied (and there were many) hadn't been cleared...obviously short staffed! We waited ages for wine glasses! Then asked for a wine bucket to be told they don't have one, then we asked for ice to be told nope no ice at... More

We stopped here because we both fancied Indian. Although the decor could do with some work and there is only one chef so service can be a little slow the food did not disappoint. Would highly recommend

Attended this place with a little trepidation. You certainly don't visit for the decor. It is basic. On the night we attended the place was packed and while we ate people queued for tables. I know why. The food is excellent. My wife said it's the best Indian she has ever eaten. That is a big statement as Indian is... More

My partner and I love Indian food which I eat regularly at home at have sampled authentically on four trips to Delhi. I had high hopes having read other reviews but thought the food was foul. I had chicken korma which tasted awful.and I could only eat a couple of mouthfuls. There was no choice of rice other than plain... More

If you like your curries this inconspicuous little place is the place to go. You would never guess the quality of what comes out of it. The Lamb Rogan Josh is just a knockout. Seems very popular with locals. Eaten twice and both occasions were excellent.
