We had a taketaway. The lady who took our order said that the chef would start cooking it immediately. Since it was all ready within 25 minutes, that was certainly the case. The way the food was prepared was a bit different from what we're...More

This restaurant was recommended by a stranger in Katoomba’s main street so we thought we would give it a try. I promise any folk who enjoy Indian food, you won’t be disappointed. The meals were fantastic and moderately priced. We will go there again.

Your question has been answered already, but a tip is that if you are going on a Friday or Saturday night make sure you reserve your table. The place fills up pretty quickly and I've seen "walk-ins" turned away many times.
