Shocking wait (1 & 3/4 hrs) for a small order of naan bread, butter chicken & rice. Eventually we cancelled the naan order as we overheard that the machine was broken. Staff friendly but unhelpful. Voluntarily offered free drinks however limited time to drink them...as it was closing time. Butter chicken was nice.More

Hi Helen, Our Tandoori oven broke down and it was a new year long weekend and couldn’t get any gas fitter to come and fix it at 8pm on Saturday night. We are extremely sorry you had to wait. We had around 40 people orders...More

Reserve a table now!! The chef and the team are simply delightful, the dining area and atmosphere is calming, intimate and comfortable. Family friendly. Roshni provides the most satisfying meal and a wonderful escape from the city streets. We no longer bother with other restaurants...in the vicinity due to inconsistent quality and questionable service. Just have a short lunch break or don't have time to dine, be sure to call and order for take away. My wife and I normally order a week's worth as we live out of town, even after having had lunch there that day. Suitable (and highly recommended) for discerning vegans, and all dietary requirements alike, as Indian cuisine normally does but Raj, Preet and the team make the experience more enjoyable than just simply the food. Don't go past the dal tadka. Don't be scared to opt for "Indian hot" with the cumin and pea rice🙂More

Poor service, child servers with fingers in meal, no communication skills etc- not their fault but no training. Waited nearly 1 hr for mains and was significant disappointed. Then 20 take away people stomping through the place, it’s a proper show. Place was recommended, have...since discussed this experience with them. Just don’t go to this crap place.

Experience was a 0/5. Food was a 4/5. Had we not had to wait well over an hour between our entree and mains, whilst all other tables in the restaurant had been served and a large number of takeaways walked out the door, I’d be...more forgiving. That, coupled with us receiving the wrong order (though perhaps it’s hard to get two mains dishes right) made the experience the worst I’ve had in recent memory. In context, we ordered 1 entree, 2 mains, 1 naan and one basmati rice. So I’m not sure why things went so poorly. There were vacant tables at the restaurant, but a stream of people getting takeaways. When I went up to pay, they asked me if I was here to collect a takeaway. Attention to detail is the worst I have experienced, particularly for a 40 person restaurant.More

Celebrated our 23rd anniversary there last night and once again the food and service was 1st class. Any visitors to the region must try Roshni Indian Restaurant. Every course we had last night was delicious, and with friendly professional staff made for an enjoyable night.

We visited on a Tuesday night and found the restaurant packed. The service was fabulous and there wasn’t a crumb left of our meals. Very deserving of its title as one of Mackay’s favourite restaurants!
