The food is excellent but the noise from fans and other tables' conversations makes it hard to talk.

We did not have a reservation so we got a table about 40-45 minutes later . The waiting time was worth it .The food was really good especially the garlic nan & Paneer were really soft. The old style Indian ambiance is very impressive.

Super food. Couldn’t get a table until 8pm on a Monday night but the food was terrific. Food came out slowly but the staff were terrific. No wonder so many of the Indian Cricket team were dining there!

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
