Love this place! Whenever we feel like curry we head here. The staff are lovely and if you are eating in the chef always comes out to ask how your meal was.

Tried a few Indian restaurants in Hervey Bay but this one was the best, the staff were very friendly and the food was fantastic.

Super service, delicious flavours and reasonable price. I chose my favourite which is a palak paneer style dish and it was mouth watering. Cheese and spinach naan was also enjoyable.
