I enjoyed the butter chicken along with rice for Sunday dinner. Price seemed ok (probably out in the suburbs I'd expect it to be slightly cheaper). They don't take cards without a surcharge which is a bit annoying.

I would probably give this place 2.5 stars. We stopped by for a quick lunch and were pretty unimpressed. We got the naan and two curries (okra & paneer) and the vegetable biryani. The curries were average. The naan seemed like it was just frozen...More

Excellent food!! The flavors were amazing and it was excellently prepared. Quite a bit pricier than what I was expecting though since everything is served separately. Would still come back though if in the area.

Excellent food. Gluten free friendly. Was able to accomodate our group of 9 as a walk-in. Cleanliness in toilets needs to be improved!

Understaffed and lack of customer service attitude. Staff needs to be reminded on cleaning the table after a customer left and we wanted to sit since no concept of reservation here. Food quality/taste is average and price is too much. Location is decent on Pitt...More

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
