Restaurant details
Reviewed 3 weeks ago via mobile

Having visited orange many time we somehow avoided this place presuming it was typically country town dumbed down Indian, how wrong we were, we finally gave it a go and we were not disappointed.
I can’t vouch for how authentic it is but it is one of the better Indian restaurants we have dined at, a not overly big restaurant situated right next to a IGA the decor is the usual Indian posters etc, the menu is large with all the usual suspect, beef vindaloo butter chicken etc plus a few more I would have liked to have tried like goat curry.
The samosas and onion bhaja were delicious, the beef vindaloo as expected was full of flavour and fiery, the dhal makhani was tasty and delicious as was the chicken tikka and the naans were just Devine fresh from the tandoor
A word of warning, we were asked what level of spice we liked, we said medium, if what we got was medium I would hate to see what hot was like, all the dishes heat levels were bearable, fiery but still bloody tasty. The desserts were the usual suspects, gulab Jamun very nice if not a tad to sweet.
The service was excellent and could not be faulted, the wine list was very small with not much choice and the wine we picked was not the best, hence one star less, you can BYO and to be honest should we visit again, which we no doubt will, we will BYO our own wine next time.
If you like Indian food and happen to be in Orange, this is a must visit

Thanks for visiting sir and giving us very detailed review. The reason for wine list is very small because most people bring their own wines due to Orange being wine producing area and people do visit and bring wines. Also we have Dan Murphy next door so people also tend to go there and bring wines in cheaper price rather paying us bit expensive. Based on our previous experience of wine selling we have reduced our menu. Again apologise for inconvenience and thanks for visiting. We will certainly improve our quality based on your suggestions.

My husband and I drop into this restaurant whenever we are in Orange. We've had a great experience each time, with friendly staff, great prices and delicious Indian food. Would definitely recommend a visit.

Meals were great, and chef was friendly and welcoming. The chef was doing the lot and serving the meals. Will be attending again.

Thanks Tania for visiting and giving us your feedback. There are two reasons for not hiring too much staff. If you want to provide quality food with quality ingredients, restaurants in country area can not afford too much staff due to inconsistency in income and very high expenses. There are times in the area when you are absolutely quiet. The other reason is lack of reliable and regular staff in regional area. But we are still managing the restaurant from long time with some excellent full time workers in a team. Thanks again for your concern and feedback.
