This "Indian restaurant" was not what I have come to know and love. The waiter smiled and agreed with everything I asked for and only once (Onion Bahji) brought the required item. I wanted a Lamb Madras - what I got was light coloured, creamy and tasting of coconut. Madras should be red in colour and have a fiery taste... More

We recently ordered a takeaway of the vegetarian Kofta, rice, naan and samosa. After enjoying Indian food all over Australia and the USA, we were pretty under whelmed to discover our meal was rather bland and lacking in any real spice offerings. Even after requesting a "medium" heat / spice upon ordering, we still had a very bland dish? The... More

Very nice staff who served us fast takeaway after a 5 hour hike and brought us to our B&B to boot as a cab would take too long. Lovely tasting food, very good naan and close by. All in all a sucess.

First tried them a year ago & came back this year; they are just as good. Wonderful recommendations from the crew- we had tandoori prawns, lamb in spinach purée, chicken curry & veg briyani. All the spices were perfectly blended into a spectacularly tasty meal; left our tummies feeling nice & cosy in this wintry weather. Totally value-for-money! Unforgettable!

They were busy when we arrived, but service was still slow. I asked for water three times. We weren't asked how hot we wanted the food, and mine was extremely undo icy, boring actually. I would not eat here again

We were staying in Olinda for a week. Not many restaurants are open on a Monday night so we went to Indian by Nature. There was only one other couple there and the decor is basic. The food, however, was fantastic. A great range on the menu of mild to hot dishes with a good selection of vegetarian and meat... More
