Ordered chicken korma but it's more like buttered chicken. Zero flavour and watery. Samosas overcooked and rice has been reheated/microwaved. Not authentic or made from fresh as stated by the man on the counter. Will never go back.

Almost 3 hours late on a delivery. Forgot half of the food. 3 peices of chicken in a curry. Absolutely furious. 6 phone calls and had to persistently plead to get it to arrive. Unbelievable, it was like negotiating a peace deal with North and...More

I had chicken Tila masala and I loved it! Naan bread was delicious. I'd say this was the best Indian meal I have brought in Cairns yet!

Not a good example of Indian food - felt unwell took a long time to digest as it gave me heartburn- not good

Dined in almost every Indian restaurant in Cairns, and no dish i've tried compares to there Lamb Jalfrezi. Generous portion size with a plentiful amount of succulent lamb pieces. Would highly recommend to anybody seeking quality Indian.

Another best kept secret in Cairns. Nice and tasty quality Indian food. Tandoori chicken was full of flavour and cooked to perfection, not the usual dry reheated stuff you very often get in other supposedly first class Indian restaurants. We also had a delicious lamb...More

Really good value for money, fed 2 hungry people for $40. Free delivery is offered but wait time was going to be 90 minutes so we picked up. The restaurant itself is not very glamorous and it's in Earlville which is a way out of...More

The Chicken Tikka Masala is first-class, and the speed of service is amazing. Although it's a little out of the city, the quality of the food outweighs this minor inconvenience.

We tried this restaurant on the advice of some friends and we were very surprised. The food was amazing especially the Vegetable Jhalfrezi which was my dish of the night. If you are looking for some authentic Indian in the Cairns region then this is...More
