We reached this place on a late afternoon for a good meal. Unfortunately their price did not match the quantity of any of the dishes we had. We were the only one at the restaurant that time. Would not prefer to visit again.

Beautiful food here, reasonable portions, definitely quality over quantity at this restaurant. One of the nicest curries out for a while. Such friendly staff also, especially Zak who spent time chatting with us suggesting trips for us to do.

The food was so good and flavourful here that we went back twice! Service was excellent as well. And we love that it is BYOB. It made it more affordable than most our meals out.
