With friends from India with whom we'd stayed, we were looking for a place with good quality veggie food included in the menu. Had not been here before and guided somewhat by reviews and convenience. Nice to be able to talk without having to shout and very pleasant décor. Great wall hangings!!! We chose the different banquets between us and... More

Had the tandoori plate, goat curry, read good things about this place, a little worried it was nearly empty when we had dinner on a Friday night but needn't of been, everything was great! We did walk by on Saturday night and it was packed, so we must have been lucky

The food is delicious and the diversity in the menu allows a wide choice for both carnivores and vegetarians alike. The garlic nan is the best I have ever had anywhere; the tandoori entree' is succulent and comes in a sizzling hot plate. The mains are abundant: of those sampled the best were the Rogan Josh and the Chicken Korma.... More

Come hungry. Because you’ll want to eat. A lot. We started with the Tandoori Platter and honestly that was enough for a shared meal (the spices and flair from the tandoor oven were perfect, just add rice and naan) but then we tried the Chicken Makhani. Flavorful, just the right balance of tomato and spice, buttery goodness. Lamb Vindaloo was... More

Yes... There are lots of Indian restaurants in the Melbourne area, but this place really raised the bar on flavor! We went to TripAdvisor before choosing this restaurant and decided this was the place to go... Wow! We were blown away! The taste of their Lamb Vindaloo and Chicken Makhani were so flavorful.

Amazing food, great atmosphere and excellent customer service. I have eaten there with my family (young children) and as a group of adults only. They cater for any size group with ease. The children were spoilt and loved the food on offer. It was a great relief to eat out with minimal stress. I have also attended without my children.... More

The curries they prepare are second to none. The rich, fragrant presentations are completely devoured by my family every single time!. Naan bread is a must as you will find yourself fighting over the remaining sauce in the bowls, then lavishly cleaning the leftover bits with the afore mentioned bread. Seriously, this place is a superb Indian restaurant which we... More

I've been here about 5 times over the past 2 years. I thought on their bad days I'd give them a chance and come back so they can prove to me that they are willing to improve. But no. Sadly, they have not improved. Starting with the food. The food is lacking on sauces. Seriously, you order a curry here... More
