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.

Delicious and great service , loved the novelty of the robot server. Prices were good. Maybe a plain atmosphere but the food was exceptional and will return.

Spacious, bright, warm restaurant with friendly staff and delicious food. We had crispy onion bhaji, chicken tikka, naan, vegetable makhani and pistachio kulfi. Service was quick and the food was hot and very tasty. We eat a lot of Indian food and we were impressed....Could not fault the food or service. Location is a little out of town but it has plenty of free car parking and is worth the drive. Closed on Tuesdays the week we went. We went on a Monday in August and did not need a reservation but I think it’s probably busier on weekends or peak holiday periods.More

Delicious food. We fed three of us for $100 including a drink each. The chicken tikka and onion bahji were sooo good. We then had butter chicken and chicken madras which were also good. We will be back with a bigger group to try more...next time.More

We'd been here a couple of times before as we have a house in the area, and had had great experiences. After the 4 of us, 2 groups of 4 and another couple arrived, and the restaurant was fairly full by then. It took about...20 min for the waitress to arrive and take our drinks and main meal orders. After about 40 min, we noticed some of the other guests receiving their entrees. We thought it was fair enough they receive their entrees first, even though they arrived and ordered after we did. However, when, another 30 min later, we saw these guests then receiving their main meals, we decided to approach the main counter to ask how long our meals would be. I was told another 10 minutes. Without my prompting, they said the reason that the other guests were served before us was that they had ordered entrees, and we hadn't. I still don't understand this logic. This whole time, no one had let us know why there was a delay in our order, or even to see if we wanted another drink. We waited another 20 min before our meals were served. Staff were then apologetic, and offered us complimentary deserts. However, after having to wait again for anyone to clear the table and take desert orders, we decided to pay and leave. It was simply too long for my elderly parents to wait longer. Unfortunately, the 10% discount won't be enough to entice us back – which is a shame because the food is great. I understand that sometimes venues are short staffed and wait times can be longer the normal, but having to wait 90 minutes, with no notification, and then being told that other guests were served before us because they ordered an entrée and we didn't, just doesn't make sense. I note there are other reviews here that similarly describe excessively long wait times.More

Thursday night take away. Second time I have eaten here. First time I thought it was very tasty. Tonight’s take away was not very tasty. Lamb snd spinach, Dahl and a cauliflower dish. The rice was perfectly cooked though.

Super convenient to the Daylesford Tourist Park, so it was an easy pick for a casual Saturday night dinner. We were so surprised to be rewarded with authentic food, great flavours and medium heat was a bit spicy, how we like it. Palak Paneer and...chicken tikka masala were both brilliant, and rice with peas and garlic naan were perfect accompaniments. Daylesford is lucky to have an Indian restaurant of this calibre!More

If the high food prices in Daylesford town centre are too much for you, you can’t go wrong with the delicious and very reasonably priced Indian food served here with a friendly smile. It’s just a few minutes drive out of town and there’s loads...of parking.More

Great Rogan Josh. Fantastic naan. Average ambiance. It's a bit out of the way but the food more than makes up for it.

A little out of town (so need a car). If ambience is your primary desire then go somewhere else. However, the staff are very friendly and extremely pleasant. If you are looking for great value for money and the most sensational Indian food, then this...is it. Book it! We had Beef Rogan Josh & Lamb Korma cooked medium spicy to suit my wife. I had some fresh green chilli on the side to meet my taste buds. Riata, mango chutney, rice & Garlic Naan all perfect extras. 2 glasses of Shiraz and all this for less than $70. Oh…. and very importantly, no after effects for either of us which of course can happen on occasions with this cuisine.More
