Mouth watering indian food. Small and intimate location. Staff are friendly and very welcoming. There was a lovely fire lighting when we entered. Not one bad thing to say. I had the butter chicken. Possibly the best I have ever had. Check this place out!

We have been dining here for about 15 years, and renewed the acquaintance tonight. The welcome is always friendly and the food was good. The onion bhaji was absolutely delicious, and all serves are well-sized. Glad to visit again.

Magic curries is seriously amazing. Anil and his team have the best curry in Hobart. Perfect in a cold night with a beautiful open fire in the building. Perfect for groups or couples.
