I am struggling to know how to comment on this restaurant other than 'average'. The premises have high ceilings which, with largely unadorned brown walls, made the restaurant feel like the inside of a warehouse. There were few diners on a Friday night resulting in...More

Authentic Indian food and some of the best in Canberra. Very tasty. I love their Vindaloo. I would recommend.

We had a good to average experience all the times we ate here. Once we ordered a delivery which took a bit too long and the phone service didn't sound as friendly. Hopefully things have changed for the better. The quality of food is great...More

The owner is pathetically arrogant and rude. Doesn't smile at any Indian customers. He communicates only through eyes and not through his mouth. Staff are polite but the owner is pathetic. He will be serving most of the times and offers a very poor service....More
