Naan bread was absolutely delicious. Fresh and fluffy with a bit of a crispy edge. We enjoyed the curries as well :)

Fantastic food and a great look! We really enjoyed our meal. The only negative was that it was a little hard to hear each other over the loud club style music!

Although I wouldn't call it fine dining, the food is exceptional in it's quality and balanced flavours. Service is wonderful and very helpful without being intrusive or condiscending. Have been there before / will be there again.

We booked a table but when we arrived they said that they did not have a table for us. They eventually gave us a table but it was in the corner in the back, which was not a great atmosphere, however the food was good

Amazing banquets! Only annoying thing was it took a while to order and multiple people would interrupt every course asking how it was

Food was great. Location just a bit too far from city centre but was worth while the trek. Would recommend a taxi if staying at the Rocks, which we were. Service perfect and charming. I had the chicken bunny which was fantastic. Partner had prawn curry and could have benefited from a few extra prawns. No coffee a available!

I had heard a lot about this restaraunt and wanted to try it out. It was average and nothing special. The only star of the meal was the lamb chops which were pretty good.. The chicken Biryani was bland and the fish curry was pretty bad... Would not visit again unfortunately :-(

The food is amazing - generous and delicious. Definitely try the bunny chow and the hoppers. They don't back on the spice and I love that. The wine we chose was not available on the night but we were given something similar. The service was okay. At times attentive - I think we had 3 waiters tell us that the wine we wanted was not available. But then when we got a substitute wine the bottle and glasses were left on the table and we had to pour the first glass ourselves. The price is also on the higher end considering the food - although a little different from the usual indian restaurants in the neighourhood - is casual indian fare. But overall the food and falvour win the day for this place and we will certainly be back.
