This great little place has been there quite a few years with the same owner, small inside but plenty of tables outside. Meals were excellent and very tasty, fabulous Naan bread, good service, would recommend. We had chicken madras and lamb Roghan Josh and both were lovely, nicely presented and good value.

We stumbled across Magic of India and were delighted we did so. We could taste the individual ingredients in the dishes we ordered and everything from the main courses to the accompanying dishes suited our tastes. The waitress was informative, friendly and efficient. The atmosphere was comfortable and casual, just what we want when on holiday. Prices were great and... More

The restaurant is small but very good, so it is always best to phone in advance. They have a good range of dishes which whilst not completely authentic "Indian" food is fairly close for Noosa. It is definitely the best locally.

As regular visitors to Indian Restaurants in various locations around the world (including India), this is probably the least favourite so far. The owner is very nice and amenable but the food just isn't quite up to what by our standards is an good/excellent Indian meal. If you are not familiar with Indian food, then you might like it but...

My wife and, visiting from California, were looking for something other than the seafood fare so prevalent (and good) around Noosa. Indian sounded good and we were not disappointed: very tender chicken in a yogurt based sauce, spicy vegetables, and really good Naan. Sat outside on a mild evening. Had a pleasant chat with the owner after dinner. A very... More

The food here is amazing and the owner of the restaurant was extremely friendly and personable. He made us feel like family even though we are foreigners. Would definitely recommend

Good early bird meal deal. Very tasty. Obviously a very popular place and lucky to get in without booking.

Appalling owner Squeezed my shoulder then questioned why we were ordering bread first? Then gave attitude back to us when we said we like to start with bread saying in an extremely rude tone "What's your problem?!" Seriously?!? The naan was terrible-tasted like damper, the roti-bland and dry! To the owner- remember who pays the bill at the end...and your... More

Hi foody-travels I am afraid you have grossly misunderstood me. My job as a restaurant owner is to ensure every guest walks away with a happy and satisfying experience. I regret that I could not manage it this time. My team and I remember your visit. You looked very serious when you walked in and the waitress tried to lighten... More
