One of the best authentic Indian places in Canberra. You won't find butter chicken on the menu, instead you get a variety of delicious dishes that are great to share.

The corkage charge of $8.00 per bottle is excessive, especially as the wine list was very limited. People should not be so discouraged from bringing their own wine when the restaurant itself has such a very limited selection.
Dear Nicky Thanks for your review and we appreciate your views on the corkage and wine list. Please let us know, what more we can add to the wine list to make it even better, as we support award-winning wines and local wines, have options for vegan & organic too. Except for rose' wine, as it has not been popular with most of the guests. Our corkage is fairly competitive.
