We ordered just before 7pm and the order arrived after 9pm. We live 15 mins away from the resteraunt. Even after 2 phone calls assuring the order was "only 20 minutes away" we still had to wait over an hour for it to arrive. This...More

Hi Charlie, Our deepest apologies on this error. There is no excuse for ruining your evening, but we were severely understaffed 3rd week of August. We had to get on-call staff, who wasn't the best in routing things properly, especially at peak hour. We're sorry...More

Everything we ordered was very good, the sizzling lamb entree and the curries were great - generous portions, saffron rice and naan bread also very good. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere with good lighting and efficient service. It's located in a shopping strip with...More

Not the most authentic Indian food you can find in Sydney. The butter chicken tastes like it's been cooked in commercially sold tomato sauce and is far too tomato based for my taste. I usually order a medium curry at Indian restaurants as medium strength...More

Four of us went, we tried goat, chicken, prawn curries, all were excellent. Rice and breads were a perfect accompaniments. Poppadoms were the only let down.

Hi Undercover Elephant - We're so happy that you loved the food. We'll make sure the poppadoms are top notch too when we see you next time :)

Ate on a $39 three course plus wine and sides voucher. This was phenomenal value - every dish was delicious, the sizzling vege entree dish was incredibly jealous, and even the desserts, usually the least interesting at most Indian places, were both fabulous. Also worth...More

Unfortunately a restaurant in decline. This Indian restaurant has been around as a local for a long time now. It's always empty and the food is very disappointing. Service is the only redeeming factor
