After the positive reviews and some great cocktails around the corner we were looking forward to a nice Indian meal. Food was fairly bland, took about 3 minutes to arrive and they didn't have any fresh chilies to add more flavour. Given how fast the food was served must have either been from a jar or prepared from a base... More

Dear Anthony We regret that you did not have a similar experience as hundreds of our satisfied patrons over the last over 20 years. First of all I would appreciate if the comments on TripAdvisor are kept factual. There is no possible way that we can even run so fast as to bring the food to any table within 3... More

Great food. Palak paneer malai kofta and Dahl Makani is superb for our vego friends and the chicken korma and the prawn makabari has spices from heaven. We were there on a Thursday. Service was snappy and staff friendly. Thoroughly recommended.

I had the navaratan korma, and it was one of the best meals I've had! Naan is to die for, lovely friendly service. Nice sitting outside on a summer night.

This great little place has been there quite a few years with the same owner, small inside but plenty of tables outside. Meals were excellent and very tasty, fabulous Naan bread, good service, would recommend. We had chicken madras and lamb Roghan Josh and both were lovely, nicely presented and good value.

We stumbled across Magic of India and were delighted we did so. We could taste the individual ingredients in the dishes we ordered and everything from the main courses to the accompanying dishes suited our tastes. The waitress was informative, friendly and efficient. The atmosphere was comfortable and casual, just what we want when on holiday. Prices were great and... More

The restaurant is small but very good, so it is always best to phone in advance. They have a good range of dishes which whilst not completely authentic "Indian" food is fairly close for Noosa. It is definitely the best locally.

As regular visitors to Indian Restaurants in various locations around the world (including India), this is probably the least favourite so far. The owner is very nice and amenable but the food just isn't quite up to what by our standards is an good/excellent Indian meal. If you are not familiar with Indian food, then you might like it but...

My wife and, visiting from California, were looking for something other than the seafood fare so prevalent (and good) around Noosa. Indian sounded good and we were not disappointed: very tender chicken in a yogurt based sauce, spicy vegetables, and really good Naan. Sat outside on a mild evening. Had a pleasant chat with the owner after dinner. A very... More
