Even our Youngest (Mr Fussy) said the food was yummy. And the curries were amazing. Best butter chicken ever, and the Naan was excellent. Wait staff were fast and efficient and really friendly.

The ocean stew was a hit. Something for everyone the enchiladas and the Mexican menu are all excellent. Viva la Mexico en OZ! The butter chicken and Rogan Josh are a must. You will not regret this.

Thought food was average but was good value. If you have entree Don’t order main meal Mexican for kids it’s too big. For 5 with drinks and mock tails can eat for under $150.
