This was such an amazing surprise when we wandered in on a Thurs evening. No idea why it wasn't packed as this was by a long way the best Indian we've had in Australia. The service was also so impressive. You will not be disappointed

Went on a wednesday night about 7.15. Got a table easily without booking but resturant did fill quickly. Food and service were first rate. Had tandori tasting plate for 2 than butter chicken and slow cooked goat plus different sides. All were amazing especially tandori cutlets. Wine selections are great , such a variety. Very lovely night.

Service was great too. The only thing that didn't impress was the cocktail (mango peach). Everything else was perfect. Highly recommend and will be... More

Take an outside table, a sunny afternoon, add perfect Indian food delivered by friendly, helpful servers and you could not want anything else, except for parking close by. The street parking is all way too short, and parking stations are a long walk. There is a taxi rank at the door, so leave the car behind and enjoy their excellent... More

This has to be one of the best Indian restaurants in Sydney. The food, service and location were 5 star. Particularly loved the bugs! The kids enjoyed it too.

Went there on a quiet week-night with a friend. Had heard about it and wanted to try. Railways goat curry was awesome and hit the right spot. Was perfect ! And Peshawari Naan is a must try; one of the best I've ever had. And topped with a kulfi dessert .. couldn't have asked more ! Great decor, good service... More

It wasn't what we were expecting..but it was just perfect. The service was great (very good looking waiters). Each dish was cooked to perfection and presented well. The slow.cooked lamp. Shoulder was amazing as was the baby brinjal curry. I'd definitely go back

Went here on a recent visit with the express intention of having the goat curry which was fantastic - authentic dish, served with meat still on the bone which may put some people off - Please don't let it. That is what makes the dish. The starters and other dishes were all good as well. Many of the starters and... More
