Every time we get takeaway here it is fantastic! ! The salt & pepper calamari is a must! The calamari is cooked perfectly with a light batter and delicious flavor. We also get the Papaya Salad which ia great serving for only $10 and the African Curry has incredible flavour with a kick of spicy. Love love love.

This is a real find for anyone who likes a good homemade curry the green paw paw salad is just lovely and worth the wait whilst he makes it to order

My mouth is watering writing this review. Richard does a lot of dishes but we have only tried the spicy goat curry a few times... don't let the goat put you off.. it's amazing, really. If you're really hungry get some salt and pepper squid.. hot damn its good!! So tender and tasty at the same time

We have eaten at Richards at least 10 times since our first time, and it has been exceptional every single time. Tonight we are eating the beef curry. It has such rich flavours and this curry has a definite asian flair (red chili, lemongrass, kaffir lime?) is spicy and rich. Never had a bad meal here and we are regulars.... More
