This is a regular lunch option for me. The lentils are a must!!! Naan is not always available but when it is, TRY IT!!! Quick and tasty every time.

This is a good place to stop in for a quick easy lunch at a good price! Delicious curries. There is something for everyone from the spicy Vindaloo to a sweet Butter Chicken and vegetarian options. All very tasty. Very friendly service. Liza remembers your name if you are a regular.

Looking for a cheap and quick curry fix - this is the place. Great Lentil curry and butter chicken. Serves even with rice are often larger than some other take aways that charge so much more.

Food is fresh and tasty as always but the staff/owner wasn't as pleasant as expected, seemed more interested in talking to family members than serving loyal customers.

Ali's is a basic little Cafe in the middle of town, but the food is great. Excellent curries at great prices and the owners are super friendly. great place for a quick meal on the run.

So affordable and you get your moneys worth. The mango chicken is a favorite at only $7 for a small tub eat in or takeaway. Very friendly service & clean environment.

I come here often for a warm lunch on a cold winter workday. The beef vindaloo & mixed lentil curry is my favourite combination. Plenty of other beef, chicken & vegie options too. All for under $10. No regrets.
