Three of us guys dropped in for a meal. We had three dishes, rice and condiments all meals were very good - butter chicken, prawn vindaloo and lamb norma the naan bread was especially good. Good food and good value for money.

We were a group of 12, booked early, got harassed (didn't think so at the time) by getting called multiple times to confirm the booking. I guess they were shocked that someone had picked this restaurant Slowest service ever! Food took terribly long to come. Although asked for medium chilli, food was bland as cardboard. Asked for tea and it... More

We ordered a take-away meal from here, so I'm unsure what eating in is like. All meals were delicious, but the sizes were small for the prices. 3x lamb cutlets $16 & were a little tough. Meat mains from $18-$23 & veggie mains for $17. Considering the ingredients for the veggie mains are much cheaper, I was surprised they were... More

thanks for giving a honest review. meals are expensive here compared to Sydney as everything is expensive here. But our quantity is must larger compared to all indian restaurants in Sydney or anywhere else. And we use more herbs in veggie mains which make them expensive. Thanks and hope to see u soon again.

Visiting with my girlfriend from Sydney and saw their flyer from our resort, so decided to check it out. We ordered the butter chicken, beef curry, rice and garlic naan. While the food was very tasty, the portion sizes were tiny. Considering each small pot of curry was almost $20 each, it was a bit steep, so unless you're willing... More
