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.

This Sri Lankan take away in Australia undoubtedly stands out as one of the finest. The authenticity of the food is remarkable, transporting me back to the flavors of Sri Lanka with each bite. The prices are incredibly reasonable, considering the exceptional quality of the...cuisine. When I find myself in Darwin again, there's no doubt I'll be returning for another unforgettable meal.More

Very varied menu, we had the butter chicken and the lamb curry, with Sri Lankin fried rice and roti. Great flavours and two curries and rice filled three hungry people. Prices are good too. Great service from friendly staff

Have eaten here a few times and accidentally booked for the night of the buffet. Not usually a fan of buffets, but in the end, all 3 of us were extremely glad we did go there on a Wednesday! Many choices, regular top-ups, great tastes...and beautiful desserts. Very well priced. Highly recommend.More

I hadn't been here for a few years but recalled it was great back then. After tonight's meal I won't return. Steak was cooked well but all 3 entrees were disappointing, Dahl varda dense, dry and lacking flavour, paneer bites squeaked against your teeth (pretty...sure it was packaged supermarket stuff not made in house), lamb bao could have saved the day but it drowned in mayo. On a brighter note the service was great and Spice Garden Special cocktails are to die forMore

Spice garden has a great range of menu options that cater for all dietary requirements and spice preferences, and all of it is delicious! I have never had a bad meal here and the staff are always friendly. I highly recommend the eggplant moju, beetroot...curry and kottu roti.More

Got some takeaways. The chicken curry was a bit average. Very small pieces of chicken in a gravy that seemed very unbalanced. Also had the eggplant curry. While this was nice, the portion size, and the same goes for the chicken was pretty small for...the price you pay.More

I’ve eaten here and enjoyed it on many occasions over the past few years but oh wow, the quality of the food is exceedingly underwhelming. I ordered a goat curry. Well I regret it. If Sri Lankan blend of spices us the same as a...few fatty pieces of goat swimming in brown gravy soup is what they want to serve, I’m never going there again. I was insulted. Someone else in our group ordered it also and was exceedingly disturbed. In fact, in the amount of time it took them to bring out this precooked then microwaved curry excuse, I could have gone to one of the other Sri Lankan restaurants in Darwin city or Winnellie and eaten and returned. Must admit - the prices were reasonable if the food had even been good but yeah, if you can cook better yourself at home (& not even identify as a Sri Lankan) then that’s pretty sad (or good if you chose to stay home). Big thumbs done. Need to lift their game.More
