    Incredible host who told both the story of the Indian region as well as the story of the dish he cooked. Food and atmosphere were amazing, couldn’t recommend it enough. Great gin and chamomile tonic cocktail too.

    The restaurant is absolutely beautiful, with views overlooking the harbour bridge and Sydney CBD. We were warmly welcomed by the staff and shown to our table even though we were 15 minutes early. The menu was the Summer menu featuring Goa & Portuguese hybrid food. Positives: head chef came to explain his menu and the top highlights of the menu; food was sensational and unique, flavours were aromatic and fresh; reasonably priced for 2 people under the Fork 50% off (2 mains + 1 starter + 1 papadum entree + 2 naan + 1 rice = $60) Negatives: the space is a little cramped (for a small restaurant this is to be expected) Overall, would definitely return. Even my father who dislikes Indian food said the food was good!

    Nice food and setting. Entree slightly small but main dishes were good size. Service was really good even though they apologised for slow service but we didn’t feel that.

    From entree to main, from the wine to service, we couldn’t have asked for more. It’s authentic Indian with a twist, can’t wait to come back.

    Excellent food. The views and the atmosphere was amazing. Slightly disappointed with the quantity of the starters which could be improved. Otherwise highly recommend!

    Excellent bhaji chaat and racheado - I cannot recommend these two starters enough. The flavours were wonderful. The restaurant also has a lovely atmosphere and great service. I love that the staff tell you a little about the cuisine's history and about the dishes you order.

    This little restaurant is in an exquisite part of Sydney. The food was artfully put together and the tastes had both complexity and subtlety despite the powerful hit of flavour from chilli and traditional Indian spices. It was a lovely meal and the waitstaff were knowledgeable about the dishes. We saw some other amazing looking dishes go to other tables so we will have to go back and try more.

    Food was delicious with excellent flavours and dishes that we had not seen in other Indian restaurants. We had a mix of vegetarian and non-vegetarian entrees (2) and mains (2) plus rice and 3 naan bread for a party of 3 adults followed by a dessert trio which was the right amount.

    Beautiful food, great service and an awesome view. We were even given a short history of how chilies were introduced to India and how the menu changes with the seasons.

    Excellent high quality food, fantastic service from the friendly maitre d and his assistant. They were warm, welcoming, friendly and polite. A bit slow to bring the meals but then it was packed, so I understand. We had a table at the window with great views of the harbour and the bridge. Only prob is that it's a very noisy and slightly cramped venue. There is only one unisex toilet, clearly not sufficient when it's full, but it is clean and well stocked. Easy parking in nearby Walker or Arthur Streets where there are no restrictions after 6pm. Clearly, a popular restaurant as it was full midweek, but a bit too noisy for my liking.
