This joint is my little families favourite Indian restaurant and by far my favourite takeaway. The service is fantastic and as a local I always feel welcomed and walk out a full and happy man. The BEST lamb korma it’s my go to and my...wife who is vegetarian loves the alloo kofta and the Dahl makni. The naans are always fresh and the curries flavoursome. In the 7 years I’ve eaten here I have never had a bad meal! . Great price, great service and the the beat Indian!More

We live in Sydney and always make a point of planning our travel through the Blue Mountains around when Anki's is open, so we can enjoy their delicious meals. This place is so unassuming but the fresh, flavourful Indian food always makes our bellies sing....Having dined here about 10 times now, I can also say the consistency of quality is excellent. We are going again this weekend and my mouth is already watering.More

Overpriced and gross slop. By the time, we got this take-away home it had turned my car, clothes, and shoes into an oily mess definitely not worth the price or the clean-up. Overall unpleasant. The woman who took the order was hardly personable, having us...wait while she disappeared into the back. Just terrible overall service, quality of food, condition of restaurant. Nothing good about it. I think it has high reviews because there is one other Indian restaurant in the area, so if you're desperate, I guess your bar is very low and this meets that fix.More

Its sad that people write reviews based on their moods. The lady ordered the food and after reaching the restaurant complained that the food was expensive. Then she took the food and after some time called and said that her dress and car is spoiled...More

The food can sometimes take a long time (and don't be put off by the outdated decor) but the food is really excellent. I like the lamb.

You should not be deceived by the look of this little Indian restaurant. You need to book, which we did and had a great Indian meal. Service was quick and I had the nicest, lightest naan bread I have experienced - recommended

Yummiest Indian I've had in a long time. Every time I visit Katoomba I come here for food. Good serving sized and the best taste.

5 minutes away from our YHA accommodation was this small, almost 'hole-in-the-wall' Indian place. Even though it was just after 6pm, we were lucky to get a table. Service was fast and helpful. We chose a chickpea battered prawn entree (6 pieces) and a mild...beef curry. Both dishes were delicious. We finished off with a small vanilla icecream and fried cheese balls desert.More

We had Dal makhani, Dal tadka, palak tofu and they all tasted great. Plenty of options for vegetarians at this restaurant. We will definitely come back. Plus it is located right in the city centre.

Small restaurant on the edge of the main shopping strip of Katoomba. But well worth finding. Don't expect great service or decor - must have been a small service shop in previous times. But we had very friendly staff and good tasty food. Don't know...what the prices are like for other Indian restaurants in the area are like but pricing seemed reasonable for what was served. We shared three main courses and two entrees. All had good flavours and the chicken and lamb in the mains we ordered were extremely tender. Next time in Katoomba would revisit this place!More

Your question has been answered already, but a tip is that if you are going on a Friday or Saturday night make sure you reserve your table. The place fills up pretty quickly and I've seen "walk-ins" turned away many times.
