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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We had chicken tikka masala and butter chicken, accompanied by garlic naan bread. The food was very good, all dishes were of good size. Prices are fair.

Nothing gourmet about this place. Food is awful and tasteless. Tandoori chicken is inedible. So dry and chewy. So shocked to be served this dish I couldn't believe how bad it was. Garlic naan was mothered with a yellow substance, think it was gee &...garlic. However it was disgusting. Chef special of prawns in curry was also terrible. Frozen prawns in a tasteless sauce. No flavor! Onion baji which I'v had many times was not traditionally onion baji - it was a spoon of dough deep fried. Rude staff. Nothing appealing here. Do not recommend.More

Great vindaloo! Most places serve it mild or medium even if you ask for hot. This was not just hot, but good! Nice place that spills out in the street.

Authentic Indian restaurant on an unassuming side street, with tables spilling over onto the pavement. The staff was very friendly, and service was excellent. The food is mouth-wateringly delicious. And very reasonably priced. Would love to go back.

A little disappointed in this place. The Google and trip adviser reviews seemed good so I went along to support someone with dietary restrictions but was disappointed in my own meal. I am a regular Indian eater and on this occasion had the lamb korma....I was expecting a solid flavoursome base with a creamy sauce and instead it was watery with little taste. The service was good but the food was not what I expected. The other person I was with with was happy with their meal which was the bonus for the evening but I left most of mine on the plate and had a cuppa soup when I got home. 😞More

Odd little place with tables spaced “outside” in the walk-through of a shopping area. Service was very quick (though it wasn’t busy when we were there (a Wednesday evening) and staff were nice. Food was decent but not special; the garlic naan was the highlight....Oh, and a visit to the restrooms was like something out of a horror movie - do not go if you do dine here!!More

Walking by this hidden restaurant in the alley, made us getting in the mood for Indian food. About 7 tables were having guests and the happy owner came to our table with good energy. The tandoori-meals were all sold out, but there was enough left...to choose. We ordered each the “Meat Thali” platter with several dishes combined on one plate: Butter Chicken, Lamb Rogan Josh, Dal, given with Rice, Raita, Naan and Pappadum, together with two beers. The platter was OUTSTANDING fantastic! (Despite we had to wait for 45 minutes and the pappadum was missing), the naan was soft and fresh, the lamb and chicken very tender and very wel spiced and cooked. The Dal very tasteful and all very good combined! We got 2 complimentary beers for the extreme long waiting time, that’s customer service at its best! Would really recommend this Indian secret here in Melbourne. ;-)More

Dined here on Jan 4th 2022 we had Beef Vindaloo, Malai Kofta, with rice and a plain naan. All dishes were delicious and tasty at $73 for two including one bottle of cider, some may think that is a little expensive for a small Indian...eatery but don't let that put you off the food is very good.More

Was looking forward to eating here after reading good reviews, I was very disappointed. The lamb korma curry was tasteless and left a fatty residue in the mouth. Rice is expensive for what you get, tiny little dish of not so good rice. There was...a male working there who was kind and helpful to customers (he did not serve us) he was the only positive thing about this restaurant. I would not recommend eating here.More
