First night in airlie beach we decided to try the lovely Indian! Well it was anything but lovely. After waiting 15 minutes at our table we decided we should ask the staff if we could order which was greeted with a "one minute please" after waiting for what was definitely not one minute we finally placed our order! We then waited a further ten minutes for our drinks... looking around us realising that a few tables had ordered before us and still hadn't received food. It was coming out in dribs and drabs taking a few minutes for tables to even receive a plate! We started to get a bit worried seeing as we had been waiting for 45 minutes at this stage. We spoke to the waitress asking how long it how be. As she walked past with another tables order she said 5 minutes. After waiting another 15 minutes she brought us food, thinking happy days it turned out the food wasn't our order but the tables beside us(this table had ordered at least 15 minutes after us) my patience was gone. We waited 1 hour in which we had ordered 2 meals 2 drinks and received 1 order of drinks(for 2 people) with terrible customer service! Will not recommend this place at all unfortunately can't give minus or we definitely would!

Onion bhaji was yummy, as was the butter chicken & mango chicken! The naan and roti were good too.
The staff were friendly and it was very quiet, but they put us under no pressure to leave as it approached closing time.
The view over the balcony is quite nice too.

After a week on the water we stopped in for an evening meal. The staff were friendly and interesting. I'd say the food was pretty average Indian but it all tasted good and there were no problems with any of the food. We had a gluten intolerant person with us and they went out of their way to get her what she wanted. A nice location with a view over the water if you could get a street table. A nice evening

This was not a planned lunch at the Indian restaurant. We were pleasantly surprised how tasty our meals were. No body in the restaurant at the time so we thought the worst was coming being on holiday and not knowing the area. It was fantastic value for money - meal and drink for $13.95. Beef Madras, rice and a bottle of XXXX Gold beer. We were very impressed. Highly recommend this Indian Restaurant.

We didn't have a booking and arrived late ...the staff were very accommodating and seated us on the covered balcony on a balmy winter night!
We enjoyed a mix of shared dishes and to me the Rogan Josh was the standout. We had some nice wines ... a very pleasant night.
