Just felt the price a little on the higher end, specially for the drinks.
Rest all was very good. Food taste was awesome.

Went with three others to celebrate us all moving in together. The value for food and drinks was OK. The background music was an 80's playlist - not exactly a bad thing! I wouldn't necessarily say the meals are big enough for sharing. Dessert was extremely flavourful.

I love this place and brought a group of friends after recommending it many times. The service is usually on point but this occasion didn't meet the standard of previous.

It was disappointing to see tables that arrived after us have their drinks orders taken before us, it was even worse when we had to request that someone please come to take our drinks orders.

I've put it down to an off night, we'll be back...

Food was fairly normal, nothing special. No air conditioning which ruined the night. It was more like a cheap Indian restaurant atmosphere rather that something with style.

Some of the best food I've ever had, would strongly recommend doing the chefs tasting platter 10000%. This place is great value for money whilst still feeling special. The decor is amazing. They are very safe by sticking to covid rules too!

We went to Daughter in Law for our anniversary. Being two vegans, we were catered to SO well. We had the tasting menu and every single dish was divine. It was heaps of food and we left feeling very full and happy.

I am still dreaming about the coconut curry!

Food was great really enjoyed the set menus selection. However, no one came to take our order for food or drinks for 30 minutes, then they unfortunately forgot our drink order. The other odd thing was a staff member kept turning the music up to a very high volume and then 5 minutes later another staff member would turn it down. This happened a few times, didn’t create a nice atmosphere....

Incredible food, incredible decor, super affordable for the sheer amount of food and quality of produce. 10 out of 10 would recommend! Make sure you’re ready to be fed! Definitely get the feed me option, the spectacle is so worth it. They expertly catered to us being gluten free, absolutely didn’t miss out on a thing, which is a common occurrence with food allergies.

Everyone was so friendly, and all the staff was very helpful in explaining what things are etc. Highly recommend for anyone who’s keen to try out Indian cuisine but unsure about personal spice level tolerance.
