We live in the area and whenever we are in the mood for Indian we get take away from here. Our favourites are the butter chicken and beef saag. The naan bread and onion kulcha are excellent, you can tell they are made fresh.

My favourite butter chicken is made at Tamleni's. It always tastes great and they have very friendly service.

Visited last week, amazing food and fantastic service!!! Very authentic Indian dishes. The person who served was lovely. The decor was also very nice with lovely Indian paintings and posters. Highly recommended.

Absolutely divine, freshly prepared and authentic Indian cuisine. Being Indian, the gluten free selection was outstanding. The wait staff were super personable, attentive, friendly and efficient. Dishes were described on arrival and we felt like we were VIPs. Totally impressed and can't wait to return. Great wine selection also. Thank you Tamleni - you should be proud. Penrith finally has...

This restaurant ticks all of the boxes for simple casual dining. The staff are friendly and always greet you like a friend. The service is great and the food is by far the best Indian in Penrith. I could eat the "chicken 16" all night, the beef vindaloo is great hot enough to raise a sweat but no so hot... More
