First time here and not the last. Everything was mouth watering and leaving wanting more with each mouthful. Sublime flavours and aromatics. Just wonderful. Note to self. Come with an appetite as the serves are generous. Just lovely

The food was great. A bit spicy for my palate. Service was a tat slow, can't blame them, the place was overflowing with diners. Ambience in general was superb as well. Loved the autographed cricket bat at the front

Enjoyed the curry, service was good too. Very similar to a curry from the uk (so quite different to aus). Only negative was the cleanliness of the toilets. Apart from that very good!👍
