    This restaurant was a great find and I would highly recommend it. Preeti and her husband who is the chef, have created a lovely modern Indian restaurant which is very welcoming from the moment you enter the front door. The food is of very high quality and the service is impeccable.

    I don't normally write reviews but this venue was excellent. We used the 50 dollar fork discount and had a full spread of curries that were delicious. The lamb vindaloo was the highlight and the naan bread was fluffy and flavoursome. Service is a little slow but acceptable because it is worth that wait for the food. Bring good company and you'll love your dining experience. I would come back here and pay full price.

    Staff is very nice and welcoming. All the dishes were amazingly delicious and seemed more authentic than other Indian restaurants where all the sauces taste the same. Had a great meal! Will certainly come back for the Briyani.

    A Solid 9/10. The food and ambience is excellent. The only downside is that the side dishes (rice / bread ) are very expensive for the quantity received. $8 for 100grams of rice is robbery. Thankfully their curries are outstanding.

    My wife and I went for dinner last week and really enjoyed the occasion. It's a beautiful little place and you receive a warm welcome upon arrival before being taken to your seat. We took our own wine and the staff were very friendly and attentive throughout the night. The food is great and you get a choice of spice level, we took HOT which is one below the top level and it was perfect for us. We couldn't fault anything and will definitely visit again.

    Delicious food and quick service, the best Indian I've had in Melbourne (and I eat a lot). I definitely recommend the BT Special Chicken and Mango Lassi
