So good we went back a second time during our stay in Handorf. We had a variety of dishes. Our waiter was very helpful with the selection and wine pairing although the red wine was too warm. Enjoyed eating outdoors.

Great meal with friends. Very surprised at the value of the Thali plate. Everything was done to perfection. Lovely night to sit outside and watch the world go by. Highly recommend this restaurant on your next visit to Hahnforf.

Boxing Day dinner, we were looking for something other than roast or barbeque, and this place presented well. Ordered just cheesy naan (which wasn't cheesy or naan like), Thai Green curry (which came out brown) and Tandoori chicken pieces (which were missing the salad detailed on the menu, and included two pieces of chicken that were of such a shape...

Rushed grumpy waitress. Food came but we had to ask for plates to eat off. Lamb cutlets were incinerated. Used to be great but very poor now. Daughter didn't like the butter chicken, they have changed the recipie.

Well priced, great food, good atmosphere. This is the best Indian in the Adelaide Hills, hands down. One of the better restaurants in Hahndorf for food and ambiance. We will be returning again very soon!

The service here was good. That is the only thing that was good, If you like good Indian food that lives up to its description on the menu this is not the place to go. We had three dishes that were very bland and none of them had that wow factor that you would expect when dining out. There are... More
