Looking forward to a genuine Indian seafood meal booked a lunch to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Green bean salad entree was great but both the Trevally and Leather Jacket mains were overcooked, dry and tasteless! Service wasn't brilliant either. Won't be back.

A last minute booking on a Saturday night went well. We were squeezed into a 6.30-8pm slot for five and shared a large communal table with a group of delightful students.

6 of us dined here for a Saturday night catch up dinner at its new persona Fish head. A great selection of dishes with a mix of Malay and Indian influences with a modern twist. We decided on the share selection. There was plenty of food and we certainly didn't go hungry! We would definitely return!

We had tried British India but were interested to try this revamped restaurant. It was a birthday celebration on a Sunday night and not too busy. Everything we tried was delicious including the pork belly, duck and beef cheeks. With a bottle of the Lois bubbly from The Lane in the Adelaide Hills we had a great night out.
