    Dined with my wife, we shared two curries with garlic naan and rice. Curries were a goan fish curry and goat and lentil curry, both very flavoursome and mid heat. Washed down with a reasonably-priced Cabernet Sauvignon. Service was impeccable.

    The entrees were fabulous and full of flavour. The mains, the chicken saag was superb but the Lamb in the Rogan Josh was tough. Garlic Naan great. Generous servings, the staff were very friendly and couldn’t fault the service. Would be going back again if I lived in Canberra.

    The food was absolutely fantastic and so was the service. Lamb shanks almost melted off the bone. Some of the best Indian food I've had in Canberra.

    2nd time back in a week so that tells you how good we thought it was the first time. Plenty of Glutton Free and Vegetarian Options. The lamb shank was very tasty, but once again my highlight was the goat.

    Great restaurant- food was so tasty, fresh and filling. Would definitely recommend, and endeavour to return next time we come to Canberra. The highlight was the Dahl Makhani, yum!

    The tikka masala chicken was enjoyable however the madras beef was on the salty side, not a well balanced dish to the point of almost unpalatable. Good dining atmosphere and efficient service.

    I had a delightful dinner here and there were multiple factors but I feel like this restaurant deserves at least some credit. It's a nice setup, for one. Tables a bit big for my liking but plenty of space and it's easy to have a conversation, it didn't feel crowded or too noisy at all. I also appreciated the service. Just the one gentleman seemed to be serving all the tables and he was just right: helpful but not too intense. We were able to take things at a nice pace. We had the Palak paneer and bagara baingan. They were good portion sizes and plenty for two people. Overall a great time and I intend to return.

    The food tasted great and was full of flvaour! The food portions were deceivingly small but my partner and I were really full at the end of the meal.

    The staff were friendly, the atmosphere was nice and the food was really, really good and really well priced! Being a BYO restaurant is also a nice bonus!
