Lovely food but suggest you try this restaurant in warmer weather... as it was very cold inside. Lots of dinners left their winter jackets on when dining - me included.

We keep coming back to Colors of India - Love it! We travel 30 mins here and back to dine and it is worth every minute. We occasionally dine closer to home - but lately have been disappointed - as the meal is not as good as the standard you experience at Colors of India. We recommend to everyone!!!!

Ashley dined on Sun, 12th May 2019 (9)

Loved it! Went with the family to celebrate Mother’s Day and while they were very busy, the service was excellent. My boys were a little disappointed that an Italian restaurant with a woodfire oven did not serve pizzas! However, they got to try a lot of new dishes that they otherwise would not – and they really enjoyed the food! Highly recommend this delightful restaurant.

Criniti's Castle Hill

Castle Hill

Ashley dined on Tue, 5th Mar 2019 (7)

Criniti's knows the restaurant business and this place is always packed and very popular. The food is good and the service at Castle Hill is wonderful. My only criticism is the prices. Pizza prices start at $30 for a regular and my pasta was $36.50. The food was lovely but prices are way over-the-top. Great to use your $20 reward vouchers through - through Thefork and also the current Amex offer - that makes it more affordable.

Biviano's Dural

Dural

Ashley dined on Sat, 24th Nov 2018 (5)

Lovely location and extremely pleasant service. But sadly the food is average at best. Prices are definitely on the high side and the meals themselves leave you flat. I ordered a prawn and avocado salad - not sure how long before the lettuce was prepared - but I had to trim all of the browned/dried ends off the leaves.

Biviano's Dural

Dural

Ashley dined on Tue, 2nd Oct 2018 (8)

Very posh restaurant - with prices to match. The service was lovely and most of the food we enjoyed. Enjoyed our starters and Rocket Salad. But sadly the pizza base was not up to scratch. Tasted like a coles-bought base... not like the usually top-class woodfire bases you expect at an Italian restaurant.

Olivo Woodfire Pizza & Pasta

A great place to take the family for dinner - if you live in the Hills! Friendly service with a warm welcome on your arrival - every time!

Maharaja's Haveli

Quakers Hill

Ashley dined on Sat, 22nd Sep 2018 (6)

Didn't get a welcome feel here. Too many male staff members doing very little while giving instructions to others already obviously busy. Do not order the cucumber tomato salad.... poorly presented, somewhat dry and certainly overpriced!!

Really enjoy visiting this restaurant. It is close to home, always plenty of parking in the evening. You always get a smile on arrival and the staff are keen to make your evening a good one.

Maharaja's On Carmen

Carlingford

Ashley dined on Sat, 21st Apr 2018 (7)

Indian up a notch! Smartly fitted-out restaurant with particularly nice crockery. All dishes were divine and their naan bread is tastefully served on a rustic board. Only criticism - very expensive for Indian cuisine.... expect to pay $50 per head for starter, main, bread and rice.

Husk & Vine

Parramatta

Ashley dined on Wed, 11th Apr 2018 (7)

Sadly these guys have just updated their menu and all the fabulous selections we made on our last visit are absent! Service is always fantastic and with the Dimmi Discount booking it is worth a visit - just to give something new a try. I hope to visit there one day to find Corona on the beer list - as their beer choices are limited and uninviting. I would be interested to know why such a happening place would not have the most popular beer on earth - in their cellar??? Look forward to trying again on their next menu!

Grand Chettinad

Bella Vista

Ashley dined on Tue, 27th Mar 2018 (7)

A great place for a bite - if you love Indian Street Food. There is no Butter Chicken or Naan bread... so we were a little out of our comfort zone. Would recommend the Cauliflower starter - it was generous in size and delicious! Would also suggest any dinners that like their spice level to be medium.... request mild here - they serve it hot!

Husk & Vine

Parramatta

Ashley dined on Mon, 12th Mar 2018 (8)

Wonderful atmosphere and very upbeat. Enthusiastic wait staff and varied menu. Only criticism - dining area a little on the chilly side - my husband had to swap chairs to get out of the freezing air conditioning jet - from somewhere above. The food was very appetising - again on downer was we ordered the $44 steak on the menu - the steak was beautifully cooked however the shoestring fries were cold!

Jaggis Indian Eatery

Seven Hills

Ashley dined on Sat, 24th Feb 2018 (5)

Pleasant girls looking after the service... but place lacks a little ambiance. Had a cute t-light candle on the table - unlit! An odd set up - food comes from next door. Has the makings of a good eat out - but needs a few tweeks - here and there.

Coco Cubano Parramatta

Ashley dined on Tue, 5th Dec 2017 (8)

Lovely food and very friendly service. Every dish was first class in flavour and presentation. Would definitely recommend to all in the Hills that love Indian food. One gripe though - BYO corkage $5 per diner... way too steep! They need to revise that or wine lovers will find another venue! $5 per bottle is more like the norm.

Maharaja's Lakeside Indian

Baulkham Hills

Ashley dined on Mon, 2nd Oct 2017 (7)

Sadly not up to scratch on this visit. We had a table for two in the back section overlooking the lake... sounds nice but so very noisy with large parties and kids either side of us - we could barely hear each other above the noise. Also our meal took forever with no apologies or progress reports. All in all a bit ordinary on this occasion.... But usually very good.

WaazWaan

Crows Nest

Ashley dined on Tue, 26th Sep 2017 (9)

Delightful from the moment you walk in the door! Fanoos smells good, looks great and the food is first class! My husband and I love Indian food and eat out a lot..... he claims Fanoos' Butter Chicken is the best he has ever tasted! The Chilli Garlic Fried Fried rice is also a must have. This is certainly a restaurant that ticks all the boxes and I would highly recommend to everyone who loves Indian or Asian foods.

Criniti's Castle Hill

Castle Hill

Ashley dined on Sun, 24th Sep 2017 (7)

These guys know how to run a successful chain of restaurants. Very disappointed though - that they are no longer honouring those with Entertainment memberships - as a lot of diners make their bookings because of their introduction by this publication. Their chain of restaurants are clearly promoted int he 2017/2018 publications for Sydney - but when you go to pay your bill they will not give you the benefit! Spoils an otherwise great mean!

Lovely food and attentive service make this a nice meeting place for family and friends. Best of all their chicken in their meals is free-range chicken - which is really important to me and my family. (So much better then the cheap, cruel, factory-farmed meat that most restaurants serve) Thumbs up Banarasi Babu - love what you do!

Usually - Love this place! Fantastic food and efficient serving of your meal once ordered. Seating staff need to be a little more attentive though.... left standing near the "Please wait to be seated" sign for extended period and pretty much felt ignored by passing staff. Was only shown to a table (and there were plenty available) when my dining companion impatiently got the attention of a wait staff. Apart from this though a very pleasant evening - I highly recommend the Chicken Salad!

Champs Bar & Dining

Rosehill

Ashley dined on Tue, 27th Oct 2015 (7)

Try the Beef Fillet - superb. Watch out for the offer of water spring or still. We agreed to still - thinking it was chilled tap water - Oops $12 extra on the bill. Overall, loved the meal and will be back!

The Gallery Restaurant

Baulkham Hills

Ashley dined on Thu, 30th Jul 2015 (3)

Sorry really disappointed. The Garlic Bread was nice and value for money but that is where the good experience ended for us. The Salt and Pepper Calamari was clearly out of the freezer - and not cheap - expected more.. Overall the quality of the food was disappointing for the prices they are charging - expected better. Will not be back. There were 4 of us dining and no one was overly happy with their meal. I had lamb shanks - the meat was stuck to the bone - it should full off the bone and the gravy was gluggy. On the upside this place must do something right as the queues were out the door!
