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.

My food, for which I was charged, failed to arrive. I called the restaurant and they told me it was my problem and they didn’t care if that upset me. True story.

Once you find the side door to the back of the restaurant, prepare for possibly the best butter chicken curry ever.

Service was slow. 1/2 hr before taking order. Waited till after entrees arrived to get the drinks. Mixed entrees very nice Lamb Rogan Josh and Kashmiri Lamb and rice excellent. Naan bread arrived half way into mains. Two staff non stop talking in language loudly...in the kitchen. Dining room just white walls, no music no atmosphere and no other customers. Really was disappointed as food is great. Not sure I would return. Had to ring the bell to get serviced. Food 4/5 Service 0 Atmosphere 2/5More

Our background ... we've been eating at Indian restaurants, mostly in the United States, for nearly 35 years. The 3 of us went to India for 5 weeks in 2013 and had the real and glorious experience of India's cuisine. So we have a good...sense of the food of India. The ratings on Tripadvisor led us here. Ratings and what we had just didn't match up, left us scratching our heads ... what? The appetizers were overly greasy and almost fried to the point being scorched. The 3 entries weren't well spiced at all and had been sweetened to the point of being unenjoyable. The service, even by the most lenient of Cairns standards, was the low point ... flat out bad. Maybe we hit a bad day, but they weren't that busy.More

We started with a mixed entree and samosa fir starters. The serves we generous and the samosas quite large. Next we ordered a half serve Tandoori Chicken, coconut rice, Rogan Josh and 2 garlic naan. These were also generous serves that we couldn’t finish but...the staff packed it up for us to take with us. Highly recommend this place. Prices are very reasonable and the food is excellent quality. Staff very friendly and helpful.More

Although the restaurant is fairly basic inside it is well worth sitting down and enjoying the friendly service and the food. The Lamb vindaloo was excellent with good heat an lovely flavour. A great place for a casual dinner in Cairns.
