This is a lovely Indian restaurant, parking easy around the back. As Im from the uk I'm used to different Indian menu options, but there is a lovely vegetarian dish that I enjoy called Malai kofta. I was pleased it was on the menu here too. I recommended it to my son, as its always been a mild dish and... More

I ordered take away and asked for extra hot.The curry was very bland - actually quite sweet and hardly spicy - and the biryani quite ordinary with the prominent vegetable being cauliflower. The bill was also a surprise as it came to between 40 and 50 dollars (I can't remember exactly) for take away for one person! The restaurant seemed... More

Not the best Indian cuisine when all 3 curries looked and tasted exactly the same. Sweet dessert like muck! Bits of prawns in a curry that was $21 for the size of a small cereal bowl with small shrimps!! Not overly impressed! Though saying that the onion bhaji and the curry puffs were pleasant as entrees. Overall and extremely overpriced... More

Awful, probably the worst Indian food I have ever eaten. There was one prawn in the seafood curry. Way too much sauce and little else. Would not go back.

A tasty meal and not too spicy. The place seems clean and the staff are attentive. The draught lager was good too.

I visited Tamarin over the weekend and it was beautiful experience. Delicious food with real Indian taste with excellent service. Staff is so friendly. Chef visited us for feedback. Manoj Kumar owner of the restaurant made our evening. I will visit again.

Needing to get take away as had the kids with us, we thought this would be a good choice. We were very wrong, Butter chicken, lamb Korma a couple of naan and some pickles over $80 Both dishes tasted the same and were overly sweet, and had far to much heat and fresh chilli throughout. The keema nan was inedible... More

We arrived a bit late on a hot day into Leura, as you turn into Leura from the great western highway this is probably the first restaurant you come across ..right next to the railway station. Very basic set up we went in with zero expectations. Food was made to order, we ordered no spices and they served us just... More

This was probably the worst Indian we have had anywhere in the world.The Madras tasted like tomato soup with some peppers and next to no spice. The Dansak might have been chicken soup with no seasoning. The papadoms were soft,cooked 6 hours ago. Avoid if you want a spicy curry. The chef could not have been Indian. You would do... More

After waiting 20 minutes to place our first order for drinks, we almost felt like giving up. Yes it was a Saturday night, and the place was approximately half full, however, we felt that perhaps they were running short of staff. We'll give them the benefit of the doubt. Mixed veg entree plate for two was reasonable, with six pieces... More
