    Tucked away in Bank Place, well worth the visit. Tasty dishes, reasonable prices and not too noisy to enjoy your conversation. Great range of vegetarian options, too!

    The ambiance was good. The staff was awesome. But the quality of food was average. I am not sure if I would pay full price for the food. But extra points goes to staff and service who were courteous with a smile on their face

    Consistently good wholesome food. Friendly and efficient service. A nice relaxed atmosphere. Decent list of wines which are particularly good value. Took a birthday cake which was accepted with non fuss and presented so well. Would recommend highly.

    Great and welcoming staff. The food is good but a little too oily for my taste. The location in an old vault basement is really nice, though number of tables are limited.

    Nice staff. Wide range of food options. Good wine list reasonably priced. Careful going down the stairs the last step can be troublesome! We’ll be back.

    I visited the place using the 50% off discount from the fork (for some reason the system shows that I did not received this benefit). Food was great, the place is nice, and well located. I would definitely recommend it to others.

    The butter chicken and lamb korma was so tasty. Went perfectly along with the cheese and garlic naan that we ordered. Can't wait to come back again!

    A very decent wine list which i wouldn’t have expected. Nice environment. The highlight was the pumpkin masala with roti - incredible. They were good with diet requests as well. The lamb saag had no flavour, it was a very disappointing. & I could barely finish it. The restaurant staff should be better at recommending chef signature dishes.,

    I made a lunch reservation for 2 people at 12:30pm and we may have taken 10 minutes at the most to look through the menu and place our order. The food didn’t arrive until around 1:40pm! We didn’t complain as we assumed that the kitchen may not have been fully resourced considering it’s just after the Christmas/New Year break. One of the staff members did come over to apologise for the delay at one point. Then at last the food arrived and I wish I could at least say the food was worth the wait. I’m a big ‘foodie’ and have eaten Indian food many a time in many a place and unfortunately I have to say the food we ate today at Curry Vault was probably one of the most disappointing meals I’ve had! Let’s start with the Goan Prawn Curry, the prawns were the small pre-cooked and thawed kind you can buy in bulk at certain stores. They would’ve been dumped in the sauce because they lacked any flavor whatsoever and a couple of the prawns were a little cold as well.The Vegetable Korma dish was supposed to have Cashews in it as per the menu but the cashews were non existent. Another dish which was supposed to have had Coriander came without it. Overall all three dishes we ordered lacked flavour and the level of spiciness was zero . We were asked how spicy we’d like our dishes to be and we requested for medium spicy but none of the dishes were spicy at all. One thing we noticed was that other patrons who came in long after us also got their meals served at the same time as we did and it appeared as if the kitchen staff had done a mass cook up/re-heating of a few sauces and served us all at the same time. The sauce of the Vegetable Korma and Goan Prawn dish tasted the same! The only good things, the staff member who apologised for the delay in food service was quite friendly and nice and thanks to a deal on The Fork we only paid 50%of the total food bill. I would’ve much regretted had I paid the full price of $75 for food as bad as what was served to us at Curry Vault today. I’m not sure if this is the normal standard of their food and service but as a first timer I’m not able to rate this restaurant highly based on my experience.

    Real good Indian option, tasty curries, fresh food. Couldn't fault the food, with good service. Would definitely go back and take others. The portion sizes were ideal (big) as well
