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.

Delicious food, great location, excellent service. As visitors to the area it was our second visit here and we were not disappointed. The meal and presentation were first class and really delicious. We had lamb korma with an entre and a side dish with naan...bread. A good idea to book ahead.More

Food was spectacular! Customer service was poor - it was very quiet and we were one of two couples only in the entire restaurant and because we didn't book were immediately told we could only have 1 hour. Why say that? Not exactly welcoming. I...would have given 5 stars but only 3 for the experience!More

Excellent Indian food. Efficient service. Should be on your food itinerary when visiting the Batemans Bay area, but it is not a cheap feed. Reserve a table.

We have eaten at Kohli's several times in the past and the overall experience has been good . The occasion was to celebrate our Youngest Son's 50 th and his 10 Wedding Anniversary as well as our 54 th Wedding Anniversary . Our Son chose...the Venue . I did the Booking through their Website and requested a Table for 4 by the Window . We arrived at the Restaurant at the agreed time and were shown to our Table . The Restaurant was quite crowded and the noise from everyone talking was very loud . Our Table was by a Window but could only seat 3 as it was situated at the end of a bench top that ran along the rest of the Window . The Waiter suggested one us could sit at the end of Table but this would have partially blocked access to other Tables . We decided to pull the Table out away from the Window so that we were able to sit opposite each other . The Noise in the Restaurant was growing as people raised their Voices so they could be heard . We perused the Menu and picked our Drinks The Waiter was on hand to take our Orders . Our Food arrived almost instantaneously . No Drinks yet ! The Food was Ok but our Drinks did not arrive till after we were halfway through our Meals . The voices got Louder , it was really packed . As we finished eating our plates were cleared . We were asked if we wanted any Deserts which we declined . I paid the Bill and we left . Total time in the Restaurant 37 minutes . The Noise of peoples Voices was Horrendous . The fact that our Food arrived so quickly surely indicates it was pre cooked . The position of of our Table was silly . I can see that the Restaurant is popular but cramming in extra Tables is counter productive . For a special Occasion we like to have a Drink and nice conversation . This was impossible . We felt rushed with the Waiters hovering all the time . It never used to be like this . We left very disappointed and doubt we will return .More

The location is still perfect. The food is still excellent. But with each new visit, the service gets worse. After 15 minutes waiting and trying to catch our server's eye (she avoided us very well) I had to go to the bar to order fresh...drinks after our starter. No apology from the server and still a struggle to get her to return after the main. The prices are getting unrealistic too. At Kohlis, we had 1 starter, 2 mains, 2 sides, drinks and it cost the same as Rick Stein's restaurant the day before where we had 2 starters, 2 mains, side, and drinks from a world class chef.. Get real Kohlis!!!!More

My fish curry and elevated Dahl dishes were both delicious! My partner was impressed with his lamb Rogan Josh and the garlic naan was the best I’ve had. Great service and water views. Finished with cardamom tea. Great for a relaxing night out.

The food was very good and very flavoursome; however, we ordered all our dishes “mild” but within the first couple of bites, all four of us were annoyed by how extremely hot and spicy the food was. We then spent the rest of the meal...taking one bite at a time to work out which curry was the one that was extremely hot - we had butter chicken, lamb korma and fish goa. But in the end we all decided it wasn’t one of the curries, but was actually the cheese garlic naan bread, which was very surprising, since naan bread usually doesn’t have any heat. Be warned to maybe ask if everything is mild. We had takeaway, but they have beautiful outdoor seating, as well as indoor.More

As usual food was excellent. However, the service leaves a lot to be desired. We were told we would get water when we arrived. 10/15 minutes later we had to ask for water. We were also advised then that poppadoms would be delivered. Again we...waited and had to ask for them. When our starters plates were picked up, the waiter asked if we wanted to wait for our main - we said yes. Almost immediately, the mains arrived at our table.More
