One of the best Indian restaurants in Sydney. I love to come in with my friends or just solo at times. The food is just absolutely delicious. All the lamb dishes are my favourite and the Mixed Platter on entrees are the best. My friends were very much pleased with the food and the friendly service. If you do not like to dine in just order some takeaway and enjoy it at home. But I must warn you the Naans are best eaten fresh out of the tandoor. The Butter Chicken made Indian Style has the same authentic taste as you get in India.

Our last experience was pleasing as always and we are definitely going back.

Had a family get together and we were looking for something quick & easy. We were going to find a takeaway but after looking up local restaurants remembered that Essence was around the corner. Decided to just walk around & eat in as it was just as quick. Very friendly staff, food came quickly and was all delicious and nicely served. Best Indian meal we have had for a long time, enjoyed by all, even those who had never had it before. Sorry too busy eating, forgot to get a photo! Get there and try it for yourself.

This was my 5th time visiting the restaurant, after living in London over the past year and visiting 39 European countries this is hands down the best Indian restaurant in the world!

P.s I am a vegetarian and the options are endless!

Much love another returning customer x

Staying at Lane Cove River Tourist Park we were so lucky to find this amazing place within a very short drive. This has to be the best Indian meal we have eaten since moving to Australia from England 12 years ago. They do the best Peshawari Naan and all the other dishes we ordered were also incredible. The price was also very reasonable for the amount you get served. I only wish we lived nearer so we could go regularly! It was a good size restaurant for large parties of people which is also useful if you wanted to organise a big night out. You must try this place!!

I am not a butter chicken or a beef person. I have never eaten butter chicken much and whatever I have tasted is either very sweet or tasteless. Yesterday we ordered bulk butter chicken and beef korma for 80 people and they loved it. Seeing them devour these two amazing curries I decided to try them and I loved it. Whoever has cooked them has cooked it to perfection. We had some Italian friends and they were just enjoying them. So for some amazing butter chicken and beef korma essence of North India is the place to go. Try it!!!!!.

Thank you guys. My family and friends loved it.
