I think this is the best Indian in Canberra, especially if you want authentic regional dishes. Lots of places are very focused on Punjabi cuisine but Seven does dishes from other regions just as well.

Fairly underwhelmed with the place. Food was mediocre to poor quality, flavors were generally lacking, and a lot of the dishes had similar flavors.

Delicious Indian cuisine. We had chicken tikka which was a bit sweet for out liking but kids loved it. Spicy goat curry was amazing and we had it with flaky paratha and chicken biryani. All in all a memorable experience. The staff was very attentive and service was quick. We will definitely call me back for more.

Good typical traditional Indian food, the fish was a bit overcooked and the lamb a bit tough. It was nice to sit outside, especially that the air-con inside was was set very low.

Very disappointing. Onion Bhakti were thick and heavy not light and crisp. One lamb dish was extremely salty. The other chicken dish was ok and the dhal was probably the best. Booked to use accumulated dimi points for a $20 credit but had to remind the after the bill was prepared
