This place has been under new management for a while (I believe most of the poor reviews were written during the time of the previous owners). They serve typical Indian classics but also a wide range of authentic Persian/Pakistani dishes. The owner is happy to make recommendations and prides himself on the quality of his ingredients. We have been twice... More

Got ourselves a $10 curry and rice deal from here. Was so good that we returned the next night. Made authentically with proper meat. Owned and run by a very talented and attentive man. Highly recommend!

So much flavour! Every dish tasted great. My partner and I shared a chicken and a beef meal between us and loved both.

[This review has been resubmitted for clarity, original review submitted 26/04/16] - Upon ordering, we were told it would take 10min... we received our food after 50min. - At the 45min mark, my friend went to the kitchen to inquire where our food was, as we had to leave soon. - During the inquiry, a staff member dropped one of...

It's probably insulating to call the food Indian, pretty sure most came from a packet. Food wasn't hot, the butter chicken didn't even remotely look like butter chicken, they forgot to serve our drinks, we got the food but had no plates yet, we could go on it was terrible and we will never be back!

I had some very nice dal makni at this restaurant, with excellent service. A bit pricier than Melbourne, but I was happy.

Went there with some family from interstate. They eat at Indian a lot. The food was under whelming and over priced. There was one poor waiter, who seemed totally out of his depth. There were only 3 other tables of people, and it took 3 hours to be get our mains and a dessert. Drinks service was practically non existent.... More

Pappadams were stale and cold. Replacements were quite oily (and cold). Naan was stale and cold and looked like one from Coles. Main was small, expensive, cold and came without rice. No Persian flavors in the dish. No cooking aromas in the restaurant. Very disappointed.

This was not a great experience. I wouldn't go out of my way to dine here. The food was average, the service was very slow and it wasn't cheap.
