The appearance of the restaurant is a bit deceptive. The food is delicious and the staff were very helpful in pointing out vegan options on the menu. If you like Indian (or Pakistani) food then you should definitely try this restaurant.

Came back after over a year and the food was once again great. It is such a real curry house, no frills but excellent spicy food. Love the goat dishes especially.

This is not the type of restaurant you would go to for any sort of special occasion. The tables, decor, and service would best be described as being suitable for a late night curry after a few drinks. To be fair, the food is quite good, but a visit to the toilets will make you wonder about the state of... More

After a decent 1 km walk from the Sydney Novotel, I found this place and was hungry as always to get my taste buds tantalized with Indian delicacies. But what I got was far short of the mark. The Mutter Paneer was utterly disappointing and the Garlic Naan was an absolute nightmare. It almost felt like chunks of garlic were... More

Had been in this restaurant quite a few times and I cannot recollect any item which was below average. I recommend this restaurant for good North Indian and Pakistani food. Biryani is especially good and better tasting than most

The look of this place will not be to everybody's comfort but the food is tasty. We ordered meat and vegetarian dishes and it was worth the (unexpected) trip to this restaurant. Also reasonably priced.
