    We really don't get to there often enough, it a long drive but we have never been disappointed. The food was excellent in everyway taste, temperature (the curry was, as described, medium hot) and presentation. The staff are friendly and attentive, we chatted for some time about life in general - a relatively quiet night. All in all a delightful experience. we shall definitely try to get there more often.

    Lovely food and background music. Service was a bit slow as there were only 3 tables being serviced. We were there half an hour after they opened and the Toilet was filthy with an overflowing rubbish bin. My friends curry was not as hot as she asked so they remade it for us to take away so that was an excellent customer relations from the owner. The Christmas decorations at the entrance were still up in March. The whole restaurant needs a good scrub but the meal was very tasty

    We waited about an hour after ordering to get our food. During this time, no one approached us for an explanation nor apology. There was only one waitress working the floor. When food finally came, albeit without apology, the three pieces of fish in the goan curry smelled a bit fishy and the eggplant was overcooked to mushy. The naan was a bit tough and the rice was a bit undercooked. The only reason we ate here was that it seemed to be the only place that was open at that time and within walking distance to our accommodation. We are not returning.

    The food at this restaurant was excellent! Great menu, with plenty of choices and it had a great atmosphere. Staff were very friendly & pleasant and service was generally very good. Only minor criticism was it was not busy and they could have cleared the plates quicker. Other than that, we would definitely go back and would highly recommend.

    The staff forgot to tell us when we ordered a salad that the lamb dish comes complete with a salad. They got the bill totally wrong. Maybe it was because it was Valentine's Day but that shouldn't be an excuse for bad service. When we arrived it took ten to twelve minutes before they brought the ice bucket.

    The food was good, but our 4 yr old's drink never came, luckily he forgot!! On the other hand, the waitress was happy to hook his tablet up to their wi-fi when we asked. We sat outside and it was very pleasant with plenty of nice cushions on the chairs, and we enjoyed watching our 4 yr old dance to the Indian music after the meal. I would go back.

    One of the best indian meals i've ever had in oz!!!!! The honey chilli cauliflower was to die for..... the chicken tikka naan was so flavoursome....... the mix platter entree was so pretty&not greasy deep-fry, like other indian restaurants (samosa, pakora, spring roll&bhaji)...... unfortunately we told them we had to rush&be out in half hour-but they werent able to understand...... took forever for staff to attend our table (or even seat us=10minutes) -never around, or on phone, each time we needed them.... chairs were comfy&decor wasnt to crazy indian!!!!!!! Prices were reasonable for such good, tasty food.... we had a booking@5.3pm (restaurant opens 5pm) but noone was around-nor a bell to ring, to get their attention, for well over 10minutes (no staff nor customers on view) waiting for anyone to seat us (kitchen staff came out wearing headphones&went to find waitress).... Will be going back again to give them another chance however coz food so good!!!!
