I came here with my wife and we were very disappointing. The owner is very nice but the waitresses are unfriendly and give no smile with their service. They also do not provide what is requested. We had to wait nearly half an hour for simple curry meal and the restaurant was not even busy. The reason it took so... More

Great Indian food with plenty of options and friendly staff and service. The momos and butter chicken have been the highlights so far

Nine friends met for dinner ordering a mix of banquets and individual dishes. We were informed by the waitress this was not an option as the manager had set a new rule-banquets OR individual meals, both choices cannot be served at the same table. The menu showed a minimum order of two for a banquet- we had ordered six banquets.... More

Ordered 1x medium madras 1x medium korma. Neither had any spice and very inconsistent to other times we have ordered. 2x garlic naan, which tasted more like plain naan due to lack of garlic. We are locals and have been coming there regularly and am very disappointed in the inconsistency and lack of flavour in the dishes. Will not be... More

Disclaimer: I've become a regular. If only the madras wasn't so darned good, all rich and mustard-seedy and hotted up to a great, spicy bowl of hotness. Superb raita, flaky, melting paratha, and truly radioactive tandoori mushrooms. Easily one of the best Indian restaurants we've found since the old Carlton Curry House went away...

We had a very enjoyable evening with the kids and friends. The Banquets are good value and you will leave well fed with lovely Indian Flavours.

We've ordered takeaway a few times from Magic Mint. In my opinion its the best Indian food in the area. It is really tasty and fresh, but they should put a little more chicken into their butter chicken, just not enough! Their garlic nan is delicious. Prices are reasonable too, about $30 for 2 meals with rice and nan. The... More

We ate here because there was nothing else open and soon regretted this. The place was deafeningly noisy and service was poor.We had to wait for our order to be taken and then drinks we ordered were not served and the waitress then said she was sorry she had forgotten - but still didn't bring the ordered drinks! There was... More
