Great position overlooking darling harbour, with great Indian food. The service was great with waiters asking how much heat we wanted in the curries. An array of dipping sauces were tasty & naan bread especially the mushroom one was great.More

We visited here as part of Dimmi’s 50% off January deal and weren’t disappointed. The starters and mains were delicious. We didn’t enjoy the deserts as much but that may have been as we were pretty full at that stage.More

If you are going there, ensure to have seat booked outside facing Wharf. I went there with a Groupon coupon, therefore, did not mind the price much. Without Groupon, it is simply one of the costliest Indian restaurant in Sydney. For the actual price (not...More
