We went early in the evening so not many people there at the time. Both our meals were of good quality. Service was ok but so it should of been with the amount of guests at the time. The only downfall is the pricing. Well and truly overpriced.

Had dinner here on a busy Friday night, bread was wow! Curries varied ok to good. They seem disorganised and where slow.

I found it difficult to find at first as it is not well sign-posted. The butter chicken was to die for. The service was excellent and quick. One of the best in Palm Cove.

We had a great meal and service at this restaurant would highly recommend for Indian, a little out of the way doesn't have the views but worth it for the food

Visited here on Saturday. Wasn't too busy so service was pretty good apart from the warm Kingfisher I was given. Had chicken vindaloo and the missus had fish curry. Both were tasty and of a good consistency. Rice was good and nans were freshly made. Not the best curry I have had but certainly worth a visit.

The curries were too sweet and lacked spiciness overall. Although asking for extra hot the both were mild. We ordered over the phone so did not realise they did not come with rice until arriving home. The bread was sweet too. Not to our liking.

If you fancy a good, traditional Indian curry in Palm Cove this is the place for you. Just off the main drag and so a bit quieter than most of the restaurants at Palm Cove so you can have a nice, intimate meal.

I went to this restaurant and ordered butter chicken expecting it to be very creamy and succulent but was very disappointed in the outcome. The chicken was very dry and hard to chew. I don't recommend the butter chicken, but have not tried anything else on this menu. I ordered takeaway and was told it would take 30 minutes, they... More
