Worst Indian food I have ever had. Vegetable Korma was mostly peas and was incredibly bland. Chicken Tikka Masala was meant to be mild but was unbearably hot. When we returned the chicken tikka it came back with an awful taste. Overpriced for small portions, very disappointing!!!

Absolutely packed on the long weekend and with traffic on GWH bumper to bumper due to Bells Line of Road closure, but service was absolutely fantastic and food great.

Don't be fooled by the poor reviews on this site. There may be some disgruntled competitors at work. We are locals, we visit Arjunas regularly and have never had a bad meal. We have never even had an average meal. There are always new dishes to try as the menu is extensive. The eggplant dish is always a favourite. Our last visit was with friends originally from the north of England. They know their Indian! Their comment after the meal..."the best Indian meal we've had in Australia" (and they've been in Australia for 35 years!).

I live locally and took my mother to dinner excited by trying this Indian restaurant for the first time but unfortunately it was very disappointing. I have tried many Indian restaurants in my time and through my travels but this experience rates as one of the worst. Immediate impressions the decor inside is very tired, badly in need of a revamp ....on top of that the service was very inexperienced but the main thing was our food was terrible . We ordered the main dishes of beef vindaloo and Chicken pepper masala and both were basically inedible, bitter, sour and the sauce overwhelming to the point you could not taste the dish ....we sent back both almost as served ...the manger or owner there a women was inattentive, never asking how we enjoyed the meal or anything on paying as we left ...very disappointing and not a restaurant I would recommend !

We ordered takeaway order biriyani, chicken tikka, naan and pepper chicken gravy. First thing when we open our box am surprised to see potato in biriyani!!!! I have tried many styles in biriyani but this thing is like OMG!!! So basically they make meat with potato as a gravy they cook basmati rice add partially food colour in rice, they box coloured rice as a layer gravy with potatoas layer plain basmati rice without salt as next layer and bit a piece of coriander and fried onion like countable piece as a top layer then biriyani done and they charge double than the usual price that is $28 chicken tikka countable 3 piece with coloured oil water with literally nothing apart from 2 piece of baby cucumber Naan is way too thick and finally pepper chicken gravy is average so basically they add lots and lots of food colour too.. finally owner hospitality is like inappropriate way like she’s the master she has to improve her skill and food quality and change to reasonable price depends on her food.. for this order she want customer to wait for 45 mins..
