    The food was delicious and the staff very helpful and welcoming. We had a great evening and will definitely tell our friends about this new Belconnen gem! We will be back!

    The food was really great especially the tandoori chicken and naan. It was also very cheap. I would recommend this restaurant. The best in the area.

    They gave us some complimentary popadoms with yogurt to start with. I love it when they do that. The food is always awesome and sometimes super colourful too. Service fantastic.

    Always consistent and flavoursome. I never was a big fan of Indian food until experiencing the Poet.

    The Poet is a good little neighbourhood restaurant. Our family enjoyed the goat and chicken curries a great deal, along with naans. We will be back to try more dishes for sure.
