First visited CC back in the nineties. Great food. If the dish required it, the spices were evident and in abundance and the dish was balanced. Not so now after tonight's experience. The Biryani was atrocious. Bits of tandoori chicken chopped & thrown into a...More

I chanced upon this Indian restaurant as Melbourne roasted under the midday sun. I went into the plain but functional interior and ordered my favorite Indian dish, Palak Paneer, with Basmati rice and Mango Lassee - yum! This was a simple yet flavorful and exotic...More

Decor is fairly basic, but the food has good variety, with many choices from lamb, chicken, fish and vegetarian. I chose a Thali platter for $12.50 which included the choice of two meat and one vegetarian curries, with rice and naan bread. It was quite...More

I've been coming to this curry place for about 10 years. When I first started coming, it was a bit of a hole-in-the-wall looking place. The decor has been updated recently so that dining in now is a more attractive option. The food's very tasty...More
