We have tried this restaurant atleast 20 times and I must say their service and food is always consistently the best. We love both non veg and veg food. Lovely atmosphere and very friendly staff. Highly recommended.

I was blow away with the authentic taste, recipes and the service this place had to offer. Being from India i can vouch for the taste this place has to offer! The vegan paneer is simply amazing, and the presentation of all dishes was so...good. They maintained their covid measures to the T, service was quick, very warm! Must try if you are in lower north shore or near city!More

I’ve been to many Indian restaurants in Sydney and I have to say this is by far the absolute best! Delicious food, lovely ambiance and really friendly staff. Feels like eating a meal from back home, very authentic. Definitely recommend and cannot wait to be...back again :)More

I think they have either changed hands or are cost cutting. Compared to 2 yrs ago the food is woeful. And yes big focus on delivery driver to the expense of dinners. Will not be returning.More

Had 3 dishes on the table for close to 20 mins and couldn’t get rice or a naan so they went cold. Restaurant was focused on the Uber orders rather than the folks in the restaurant. Give Malabar a go in Darlinghurst but this was...a clanger.More

Great food, very poor COVID management. They staff all wore masks and there were QR code signs but no one checked. Twice I told the waitress the sign in process wasn’t working properly and twice she said she would tell her colleague - zero response....I won’t be going back!More

The food here tastes good, smaller sized servings and a little overpriced. I realised they were a little sneaky when it came to honouring deals or vouchers. I stated when I was first seated I would be using the entertainment book voucher but was not...told when ordering off the menu that specifically had happy hour written on it that I could not use my voucher. I ended up paying 20$ for two tiny lemon lime bitters. Unlikely to return as not value for money, however the food was not bad. Better off trying one of the more casual indian restaurants aroundMore

Being a British curry fanatic, who is open to new things: during the lockdown, this was my heaven on earth. Order and tell them not to muck around with the spices i.e. plenty - and we've had the best take aways in Oz. My nearer...but dearer supplier has lost me as a customer: smaller portions and dodgy taste (see previous reviews for who I mean). Happy to recommwnd The Colonial in Neutral Bay.More
