Fantastic food, great selection and authentic Indian dishes. Funky Indian decor and excellent friendly service. No surcharge on public holiday! Loved the whole experience.

Visited for evening dinner drinks came promptly as did popadums. However the mains came very quickly after ordering - too quickly for it to have been freshly prepared - and unfortunately both curry and rice were just luke warm. Pointed this out to the staff who then returned the food which was ok. However this spoilt our appetite. Left feeling... More

I really had underestimated this restaurant prior to dining here tonight with family and friends. The naan bread selection is amazing! Must try the keema naan for something deliciously different. The food here is actually spicy! So for all you chili lovers; Indian Sumner will not disappoint. A local gem, their cbd sister restaurant is just as good - a... More

I have often walked passed here and thought I should check it out. Finally did today. It is a busy little restaurant with both dine in and takeaway options. We had the combination appetiser and ordered only one main which we couldn't finish. Thought the price was very reasonable and we were able to take our left overs home. Yummy... More

I have been three times now and everyone time it just gets better. The lamb rogan josh is perfect. The Naan is big and incredible. The location and atmosphere in there is just perfect. The service is really good and the people working there are really nice and good. 10/10

Excellent and authentic Indian food at a reasonable price. Very quiet on a Sunday night but can't fault the food or service. Also enjoyed the Bollywood and Indian techno music. A great end to a significant birthday. Highly recommended if you like your Indian food.

This lovely restaurant has apparently just started doing lunches - a $15 curry, rice and naan special. Works fire us! Fantastic fresh flavours and cooking. Hard to believe the word isn't out yet and that we had the place to ourselves (apart from the occasional takeaway order). Delightfully smooth saag with a lovely aftertaste (I ordered hot); and garlic naan... More

I had my modest birthday dinner with friends and loved it. Took few dishes to try and it worth it. Good atmosphere and tasty dishes.
