Just perfect! The lamb rogan josh was also devine. Soft lamb, yummy sauce. I loved their basmati rice and garlic naans. Friendly service. I couldnt fault anything of... More

This is a wonderful family run Indian Restaurant. They really care about your dining experience and nothing is too much trouble. Each meal is made with love and so much taste and beautiful fresh ingredients. If you are lucky enough to get Mum or Auntie as we call her to serve and cook for you, it really is an experience....

This place is awesome! The food is lovely, and the family that runs it is lovely. We eat here fairly regularly. Be sure to try the aloo tiki chat for entree, definitely my favourite entree! Food prices are good to.

This long standing family run restaurant is a gem. The chicken tikka was moist and full of mild spiciness. The madras was rich and flavoursome and the dahl (we open for extra spice) was great. Love this place.

We first met Jasbir & Bedi ( & Bimal) in 1984. Great food then and the chicken makhani tastes as flavoursome as it back then. And the tandoori platter for entree was, as always, a great start. It won't be so long next time, before we're back. Also noticed the great accessibility for disabled patrons. Cheers!!

I always find the atmosphere here very welcoming. The tubanned and imposing figure of the owner sets the real Indian flavour. There is a long menu offering food for all preferences. Very spicy is available, but they will warn you that it is VERY hot. The dishes will not appeal to those who are not fond of Indian spices. For... More

Great food and not too oily. The rice is always done perfectly. Owners really care about the food and making sure it is right. Spice level can be adjusted and it true to request.
