New restaurant is way too big and too noisy. The pakoras were dry/burnt, the service was poor and amateurish and the mains were average. The highlight of the evening was the mango lassi. Much preferred the old restaurant.
Decided to give Kohli’s another try after years of disappointment and recent favourable advice from friends. Unfortunately, Kohli’s has not changed. We ordered take away - two dishes we wanted from the online menu were not available, staff had no idea of the menu. We...waited fifteen minutes over designated time for pickup, left standing with no word from staff. Food is expensive and we returned home, missing our order of naan bread. Too far away to return. While food is tasty, service is still poor.More
We understand Kohli's is a bit of a Nowra institution and has recently moved into new premises. It had also been recommended by the couple we bought our Berry home from, so we wanted to give it a go. It was very busy when we...arrived with most tables occupied and lots of take-away diners waiting. We booked a table; and it was ready - glad we did. We ordered 2 mains, rice and cheese naan. All good, well presented, tasty and served quickly, considering the number of people in the restaurant. But it felt like we could have been eating anywhere, even a club dining room! It doesn't feel like a 'special' restaurant and definitely doesn't feel like an Indian restaurant. There's no soul, no atmosphere! I think they missed a huge opportunity to make this place feel like a different eating experience. Right now it feels like a nondescript restaurant serving Indian food. So right now, Kohli's scores high on food and service but low on a dining "experience". We'll be back in a few months to see if anything's changed.More
My hubby and I went for dinner for the second time to the new premises on Saturday 10th April . Sadly, we were left with the same feelings as the first time. The food was generally fair (much less saltier than it used to be...in the past) but was barely warm. The entree's were very tasty - but cold; the main meal was a chicken madras and whilst tasty, the low temperature of the dish let it down badly; the rice was delicious but again barely warm. They were incredibly busy and the takeaway service was full on to say the least - which is great for the owners but I suspect that is why there were people waiting too long for meals etc. We feel the seating by the open door is a disaster and they would do well to try and now make some sort of an entrance lobby/hall to protect diners from the elements; the COVID station caused issues as it was right at the door with people trying to come in and out through the small doorway. We could not recommend this for a cosy night out as the concrete floor and stark surroundings meant that the cacophony of noise was deafening at times and you had to shout across the table at each other! :-( I hope this is taken in the vein it is meant and not just seen as another winge. We LOVE Indian food so WILL be back for a takeaway but as for sitting in? We don't think so for now.More
We have been to this restaurant a few times now and always enjoy the food. Unfortunately their present premises leaves much to be desired. But we are patient and hope to see their new place soon. The one negative thing that really got to us...is that they do not serve alcohol, which is fine as we knew to bring our own. In this case we bought beer for the two of us and were charged $6 corkage even though we opened the bottles ourselves and used the water glasses on the table. Not amused as this was wrong under the circumstances. We also waited a long time between entre and main course being served, to the point we were about to leave. Took an hour????? Hopefully when they move to their renovated premises things will improve. One more thing the wait staff did not disinfect the tables and chairs between each set of guest, just changed the paper cloths on the table...not good during this Covid times!More
This was rated number one in Nowra so we had to give it a try. The food was good, flavors nice but the butter chicken was very salty and the portions were small for the price so order more rather than less if unsure. The...korma was superb! The environment was a little underwhelming being seated next to a large plank of wood draped with a cloth next to the door way but hopefully they're working on renovations. We visited several restaurant during our stay in Nowra and this was the best food from the ones we tried. (avoid the butter factory)More
