The restaurant is located quite central and not far from the hostel we were staying. The prices are reasonable, although not very cheap. The food was great, and I enjoyed particularly the butter chicken. The place is quite and comfortable.

We were in Melbourne and looking for a good Indian restaurant near Southern Cross Station. There were plenty of Indian take away types but after walking around for a while we found this one. Good atmosphere, pleasant service and a good Indian curry. All good!

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
