Now called the Aachi I got a great takeaway. Chicken jalfrezi, rice and nan. Just like a proper curry back home in London. Lovely. Well priced. Ask for a bit hotter to get what you need. Will be going back. Crap decor though, better off as take away

Was looking forward to this after visiting the Scarboro branch. The food was just not to the same standard as the other branch.

4 curries, one serve of onion bahji and $132 later... Not so impressive. It was a princely sum of $11 for two bowls of rice which I find unusual since most places in the US will give you rice as an accompaniment to any main course dish free of charge. The portions were quite modest, some with more meat in... More

Awesome food! Had the best Korma here tonight - lovely!!! Restaurant isn't glam but hey you come here for the food so not a big deal. A pleasant surprise overall, as we've been looking for some good Indian since our favourite closed down. Read the bad reviews and I can understand how some may have taken the owners as rude,...

We have been a few times and every time the service and rudeness gets worse!!! The owners wife is an absolute nightmare! I've never experienced such rudeness from someone who "owns" a business. We have always purchased a Groupon voucher and they make it very clear they don't like us using them, so why oh why did you even bother... More

We had a voucher but were disappointed in the quality of food, service and atmosphere. The currys had only 4 or 5 small pieces of meat in (possibly to save money as we had a voucher deal). They were lacking in flavour. The service was fine from our waitress however the welcome was very cold and we had to seat... More

Absolutely disgusting service... Found a long hair in the butter chicken and a hair in the rice! Was offered more food but wasn't interested after those 2 things... Then when I went to pay we had to pay for the hairy rice and butter chicken and was told "they offered us more food".... As regulars there we should of had... More

Ordered pick up of Lamb Rogan Josh and a garlic Naan. LRJ was all OIL and a few pieces of meat. It was disgusting. The Naan was hard. Never again it was a disgusting meal!

Dhaba is small, family owned cafe in South Perth that serves sit-down meals as well as take-out orders.The Owner's wife is particularly congenial and she called me by name on my second visit. The portions were very generous and tasty. I had chicken Korma both times I ate at Dhaba because the cashew nut based creamy sauce was delicious. If... More

We decided to eat here because it was not far from our hotel. There isn't a lot of character but the meals arrived quite promptly and were quite tasty. A bit expensive though for the amount in the dishes.
