Enjoyed very good value lunch time meal which included a choice of nan breads and a main course curry chosen from a large selection of curries on the menu. Very friendly service and excellent value at $15 per person

Just had the chicken Tiķka and cheese nana. Beautiful onion khakis to start. This really is good Indian Tucker! Service was friendly and timely. Nothing at all to complain about.
