We order chicken bhoona, special eggplant, lamb saag aloo and beef vindaloo. The food was so good we couldn't stop eating. Saffron rice and naan made for an excellent Indian meal with friends at home

We arrived at 12:30 2 days before Christmas. The restaurant was not full but was still busy between both diners like ourselves and takeaway orders. It was obvious the person my wife and I took to lunch was a regular as they swooned down on her and made it look like she was royalty. The staff were not only friendly... More

Have visited many times and always good and speedy service. The fact the room is always busy speaks volumes about the recognition this place has locally. We have eaten in and had take away previously and both are of a high standard. Many dishes come in entree or main sizes which helps when sharing in a group. The parking is... More

Went there with a group of friends, the place is very busy as it is charming and the food is delicious. I'm not familiar with authentic Indian, but I can bet this is as good as it gets.

Our hosts, who had chosen the restaurant, insisted that we order the "banquet". The starters were truly excellent. However, three of the four main courses brought to our table were abysmally bad: The lamb was as tough as shoe leather, and dried out. The beef was as tough as the lamb, and just as dry. The vegetables (in the Mixed... More

Always great Indian, stand out in the Eastern Suburbs. Friendly staff, always very accommodating. Quite often will do there hardest to provide a table to patrons without bookings.
