Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Visited this restaurant as a couple on a Saturday night. Have stayed on holiday in Ettalong before and had been to many other fine restaurants there but thought we would try out this one for a change. So glad we did. The quality of the...food was second to none. We ordered Samosas for entree, Lamb Nirgali Korma and Prawn Malabar for mains, garlic naan and saffron rice. Samosas had amazing flavour wrapped in a beautifully light pastry. Prawn Malabar had a very tasty tomato based sauce. Star of the meal though was the Lamb Korma and the saffron rice. Incredibly tender lamb cooked in a favour full gravy sauce. Rice was light and falling apart. Garlic Naan complimented the entire meal. Could not fault any of the dishes. Dishes were large serves so we were offered the option to take the remainder with us which we did. Lots of young staff serving who make up for their inexperience with their courtesy and work ethic. Meal cost us $94 with BYO corkage fee of $5.60 for 2. Recommend to anyone visiting Ettalong Beach.More

Enjoyable Indian food. The selection on the menu was very good and our meals came out quite quickly. The butter chicken was a bit too mild for our preference but Indian food is very subjective when it comes to heat. The railway goat curry was...excellent. Butter naan was fresh and very enjoyable. Serving sizes were quite generous and the prices relatively low. Brisk, friendly service. Well worth a visit.More

Had a lovely night at the Grand Pavilion, the staff were ridiculously attentive and clearly worked so hard. The boss wandered around without a mask on, which wasn't great, and was clearly giving the brilliant staff a bit of a hard time. I felt sorry...for them as they were excellent! Either way - we had a great night, fab curries.More

So disappointing to see what an exceptional restaurant has become now. I am sure they must have new owner’s. The curry puffs had no taste at all. I am positive they were the same as the frozen Aldi ones. None of the 4 dishes we...shared between 5 of us was even close to being tasty. The beef vindaloo was so overpowered with paprika and vinegar. They even screwed up the naan bread. It was tasteless and the cheese naan was so full of cheese it was sickly. Overpriced at $35.00 each and we are local and won’t be going back again.More

We’ve been here quite a few times now & it never disappoints. They always dish out great food. The garlic naans were sensational! Our group of six ordered seven dishes, rice & six naan breads, & they were all decent size servings & very tasty....Service was fast & friendly, & the final bill worked out under $48 per head which included corkage, 4 beers & 2 gins. We’ll be back again sooner rather than later.More

Firstly We have been going for 6 years. Was the best. Now all meals are 1/2 the size and price is 50% more (AT LEAST) Meals are still good. However, firstly had to ask forcomplimentary popadoms, ordered 2 Nan bread only one served, had to...ask for second, vege platter was 1/2 what it used to be, chicken Tikka masala was a small entree size but a main meal ordered. Waitress said there were new owners but that was 2 years ago. This place is on the way down, used to be number 1 Indian in my books. They are resting on their laurels, taking advantage of reputation. No wonder there's 1/2 the number of customers. Time to find a new Indian restaurant.More
