Started with onion baji that looked like worms on a plate.Not even nice full onion rings. Ordered 2 plain naans that were like rubber to eat. Then ordered a butter chicken which was ok but the lamb Korma we ordered was a joke.I literally counted...More

Sagwala was tasty but asked for it Medium and it was very mild. Other guest asked for it hot and was just about the same heat. Flavoursome but not what we were expecting.

We went here 3 years ago on our last trip to Airlie, so, looked forward to going again. This time was probably the worse Indian we've ever had (we love Indian so eat it regularly). Sheesh Kebab was really salty and dry. Curries were flavourless....More

We really enjoyed the Samosas they are large and stuffed full! The main was also good. Lots of vegetarian options I’d like to try! Service was a bit slow, but nothing to bad! Nice location with the second floor looking over the Main Street.

Picked up my takeaway, flavour was great. Ordered two butter chickens, for $17.90 each with only a handful of chicken. I ate a small bowl and there was no chicken left with excess sauce.. Not happy. It should be full of chicken for that price....More
