Food was absolutely great. Service very good and entertaining. Seems we were the only group not celebrating a birthday party so plenty of singing

A great use of space. Loved the music tracks played. Loved you can download the music via website. Food was lovely and very flavoursome. Unique dishes I hadn't eaten before interspaced with some old favourites. Desserts were delicious. Recommend the coconut sorbet. Looking forward to trying more of the cocktails. You can pick your beer and a cold glass from the revolving fridge.

Interesting menu.

Wonderful food.

Sound service from attentive staff

Conversation difficult with very loud music (although some nice songs on the list)

Will be back

Tasty food but very loud. Difficult to talk to others at the end of the table.

Simple things like water for the table and an ice bucket had to be requested.

I have never known mayonnaise to be used in Indian cooking. I suspect this might be the beginnings of a chain.

Service was shocking, it took forever to place our order and get a drink when we arrived. We ordered the banquet and half way through they just forgot us so waited 40 minutes in between one course - and over 2.5 hours for a handful of courses. Also the music (and therefore people shouting over it) was so loud at a table of 4 we could hardly hear each other. Wouldn’t go back which is a shame as was looking forward to it.

We were sitting directly in front of the air conditioning and it was freezing, we asked for it to be turned up, but nothing, we left as soon as we could as my partner was very cold

The food was very good (apart from the butter chicken which was too sweet), and the wait staff were welcoming and engaging. However the music was set to pub/bar/dance floor level to the extent we (6) couldn't hear each other; couldn't hear the wait staff describing the food-in short it was so loud it was impossible to have any level of conversation. Luckily we were able to be moved outside where we could enjoy our meal and each others' company. I would not go again unless I could be guaranteed of an outside table-and of course the weather was OK for outside dining: a real pity as the restaurant interior was/is nicely done-if only the music level could be kept to background levels-otherwise the whole point of eating out with friends ie to enjoy their company while eating lovely food-is lost!!

Was looking forward to going here due to all the hype and good reviews. Walking in the aesthetics and atmosphere of the restaurant were amazing. I started off with a cocktail, which was well worth the price! My friend and I decided to get the chef's selection as the menu looked so good we couldn't choose and the first two courses came out quickly and were delicious. However, the mains took over half an hour to come out after our second course and when delivered they were not vegetarian as we had ordered. Our bottle of wine also took half an hour to come and as we finally started our main meal and wine we were informed we had to leave in 20 minutes. At no point were we instructed that we had to leave by a set time and if we knew we had the table for less than 2hrs we would have ordered less and not have bought the bottle of wine. The table next to us had also made a booking and were presented the bill and asked to leave after an hour and had to rush out without finishing their meal. I understand that dinner sessions may have to be limited to 2hrs but both our table and the table next to us were given less than 2hrs (even though we made bookings a week in advance) and were not informed at the time of our booking or when we were seated that we had to leave at a set time. If time restrictions are going to be so strictly enforced, I would expect more care to placed on the timing of meals and the correct meals to be delivered and for customers to be clearly told this at the start of the night so they can order appropriately. Because of the poor service, I would not recommend the restaurant to friends even though the food was great. In the end we felt so pressured into eating and finishing our food and wine quickly that we did not enjoy the experience at all.

Was a nice experience overall, just was on the expensive side. More space between tables would have been nice. The set tasting menu was delicious and allowed us to try menu items we wouldn’t normally order. Nice for a special occasion.

The food was very good and enjoyable. I would recommend the share plate of yogurts and chutneys. I wouldn’t say the currys were worth $30 but it was still enjoyable. I would return for a special occasion but for the price I would expect a larger serving.

Thanks

The thali was the best I’ve ever had.
Definitely in the Top 5 Indian restaurants in Australia for me.

The night was more of an experience on how to be welcomed, served and an amazing wine list. A beautiful night, our waiter was attentive but not intrusive, he talked us through our choices and accommodated any dietary requirements. Overall a fabulous evening, thoroughly recommend, welcome to Adelaide. Susan

I was disappointed to hear that for groups of 6 or more you have to order the tasting menu. I would have preferred to make my own selections HOWEVER, the food was delicious, tailored to our dietary requirements and you won't go hungry!

The decor & atmosphere was great but the music does crank up later in the evening so go early if you prefer a quieter setting. Definitely worth a visit...or two!!!
