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.

3rd attempt at takeaway here due to convenience. First two were disappointing and this was no better frankly. Ordered Butter chicken and Lamb Korma. Sauces were okay, but the quantity of chicken and Lamb in both dishes was really poor. The size of the takeaway...containers was very small .... considering the prices of $25.95 each !! We will not be returning here as the food is simply not value for money.More

This is definitely our favorite restaurant!!! We haven’t been able to visit due to Covid but as soon as we got to it was amazing in every way just as we remember. The food is delicious and always presented with such love and pride, the...staff and service never fail to impress. A beautiful family owns and operated restaurant that ticks all the boxes. Thank you Indian Empire, we love your work ❤️More

Unbelievable. First Indian meal since moving to the GC. Don't miss this place. The tastes are off the richter. the team are ear pieced for a unified service experience. Well done to all.

Told 45 minutes. Was 1.5 hours. Am a big fan of the food. Know it will be good, but be realistic on order times. Very good food. Have always had great food from here.

This is a must of you live around Runaway Bay. The service is very good and ingredients are fresh. It is very good value and the prices are fair. The food is very tasty, but it is very popular so I suggest making reservations with...time. Totally recommended! Enjoy!More

This restaurant has lowered its standards. Prawn Goan Curry and Beef Madras looked and tasted the same. Beef Madras should be nice and spicy. Paratha bread was great.

I am unsure why this is so highly rated. The food is bland and the sauce are very similar. Naan was too soft. Portions were smallish. Staff good.

We had dinner here last night. We drove from Surfers to try after reading reviews on TripAdvisor. We could tell we had chosen a good restaurant by the amount of people dining in. The service was great. We ordered what we would normally eat when...we have Indian and could not get through a third of it. It was beautiful. We will return when we come up to Surfers again.More

Ordered paneer makhni vegetarian curry and two garlic naan and found a piece of chicken in it which is very dissatisfying and I really don’t recommend if you are a vegetarian. Had a chat with them and they didn’t even apologise.
