I used to live upstairs from this place and the food is of a very good quality. They make everything fresh. My favourite is easily their butter chicken.

Had a great meal here and the service was exceptional. We had Chat Papdi and Lamb Cutlets for starters and chicken madras and paneer tikka masala for mains. The food was beautiful. I will definitely return.

Dal Bukhara restaurant near Rose Bay in Sydney offers decent Indian food including vegetarian. The place is relatively small but clean. The preparation is good. They also have home delivery option. Service is efficient. However, there are better Indian restaurants in Sydney to chose from.More
