We stopped in for takeaway since we were staying nearby. The service was quick and friendly. We ordered an appetiser and main to share, along with garlic naan. The naan was seriously the best I've ever tasted. I could have skipped the biryani and just eated the saag paneer and naan! Worth a stop.

I thought I'll write a review as I've been coming here fortnightly with work colleagues (for a number of years). I know the world doesn't revolve around us but the lunch buffet has been the same for a long as we can remember. Same dishes can become boring, but we come back because the waitress is lovely and overall the... More

- Naan shouldn't be served 5-10 minutes after the meal comes out - Naan should taste like flour - suggestion - Garlic naan should taste like garlic - Butter chicken/murg makhani shouldn't be that colour nor should it be that sour and you should want to eat all of it not leave it behind and leave the building Didn't want...

The worst service we have ever seen. The old guy was so rude and disrespectful. We were served uncooked kulchas which we returned and he was yelling and pulled the basket and said he will give us new ones with a very bad tone. We were served the new ones which were really burnt and not eatable. Chicken vindaloo had... More

We were looking for somewhere for a quick meal on the Anzac weekend. When my son chose this restaurant I was dubious as I have had some unpleasant experiences elsewhere with Indian food. However, this was a pleasant surprise. When we arrived I was a little concerned that we were the only people in the restaurant - but there seemed... More

This restaurant is a standard takeaway choice for my wife and I. The food is consistently good quality, never takes more than 15-20 minutes to prepare and the staff have always been absolutely lovely to deal with. The Tandoori Chicken and Naan bread are especially good.

We had the restaurant to ourselves and had a wonderful evening! The cocktails were just $8 and yummy! The food was delicious, but we ordered too much and had to take a doggie bag home. The mixed entrees and garlic naan - absolutely delicious. Personalised and friendly service. Just wonderful. Will go again. Highly recommended in the budget meal range.... More

I am part of a group of four who meet three or four times a year for a catch up lunch. For the last 5 years or so we have gone to the Tandoor, because the food was always good, it was a convenient location and the price was very reasonable ($15 for the buffet lunch). However after our last... More

To be quite honest we tend to order the same things over and over again only because the food is just so good. And why change when you love a couple dishes. We dine in each time. Generous servings and reasonable prices. Wish I could afford to come here every day.
