This place has gone down hill over the last couple of years. The food now lacks the true Indian flavors it was once highly regarded for. Needs major changes to turn it around.

We had a delicious meal here and if you are after really good Indian food then this place is a winner. Just save going to the bathroom until you get home. The toilets are really not the best. The carpet leading up the stairs is...More

Yes we totally agree with the previous reviewer. Used to be a favourite of ours but was taken over (we presume) last year and has not been as good since. One of the few places that do Dosas and the Tandoori dishes are good too...More

Food here is worthy of a visit. Nothing that would rate as outstanding, but enjoyable, wholesome street food. The décor is not trying very hard but I guess it doesn't need to. Worth dropping by for a quiet meal before heading off to the night...More

We were in Perth for business and a colleague took us here for dinner. Great Indian food. The thali is definitely the way to go because you get a bit of everything. They allow BYO which was also handy.

Almost every time I go to this restaurant, I would order the Seafood Thai or non-Veg Thali which is filling. The Okra Curry which is also available as a Friday Lunch special will make you drool.
