Don't visit if it's authentic Indian décor your looking for However if you're after value for money give it a go. The prices are reasonable, the service is ordinary and the decor is crap but the food is OURSTANDING.

Tucked away from the main village is this little gem, the beautiful aromas as we walked in the door were followed by really well cooked Indian food We shared dished between 3 and thoroughly enjoyed them. The Naan bread is lovely and fluffy , The Butter Chicken and the lamb shanks melted. Higly recommend you add this to the list... More

It was nice to have a good feed of Indian rather than the stock standard Ozzie deep fried tucker, and they are open later than 8 pm most places stop serving after that time.

The food tasted good, but the place was a bit worse for wear, could use a good clean. The staff were friendly but didn't feel genuinely friendly. Still recommend it for the taste of the meal, except the Naan - it was slightly undercooked and chewy :-(

Friendly service and plenty of meat in the three dishes we ordered. No surprises, just good, tasty Indian food. Naan bread was a little small but other than that, quite happy.

Curries are always amazing and can be made in a variety of spice levels! Convenient for takeout & service is reasonably fast. Great prices and value for money. Would definitely recommend for great takeout food or dining in experience!

I've made an hour round trip in the most dreadful conditions for a take away from this restaurant and have just thrown all of it in the rubbish bin, we are avid Indian Food Lovers and I can honestly say this is the second worst one we have ever had anywhere in the world. $65 dollars for three totally unrecognizable...

We've eaten heaps of indian & appreciate a good curry... this wasn't one. The Meal we had (Rogan Josh) was mainly gravy.... with heaps of cornflour (or msg?). The naan was passable but The samosas were lacking in flavour. A lot of room for improvement.

The service here was good although the meals were OK lacking a bit of flavour but certainly filled you up. The meals came with rice to share.
