Three generations of us enjoyed an early Friday night tea here. Ages range from 5 to 65 and include a hard-to-please teenager. Everything was beautiful. The amount of meat you got in your curies was almost obscene for the price, and all slow roast to perfection. You could not put a foot wrong ordering anything from this menu. Beautiful! I... More

The popadoms were great, as were the pickles and sauces that came with them. The chicken madras was ok, I've had better in terms of the flavour of the sauce. Not bad but not the best I've had. The lemon pilao rice was good, with fresh lemon in it. Service was prompt but the waiters could have been more cheerful.... More

The menu on the other hand was incredibly hard to navigate with its ridiculous choice of font and layout sending my brain to mush. The service left lot to be desired. Very rushed and miserable server who snatched the menu out of my hand upon completing order... More

The staff were every helpful and attentive, especially in helping select food for those amongst the party who were vegan. Great selection on the menu including specials... More
