Good and tasty Indian dishes. However, it takes long time to serve. They should have more people to serve on weekends. The Naans were floppy and good. The Pan kulfi was superb.

Have been coming to this Indian restaurant for over 20 years. The food actually gets better and better. After enjoying Indian cuisine all over the world, I still rate Thornleigh as my favourite. The food and service is unbeatable.

Went there for group dinner on Monday. Servings were quite tiny but everything was tasty. Staff was friendly and attentive. It was stuffy inside the restaurant which wasn’t ideal.
