A fantastic menu selection, attentive service and tasty food.. a great option if you want to have a less expensive night out near the wharf. Approx $75 for 2 ppl. Not groundbreaking but worth a visit.

Set on the Hobart waterfront, this spacious Indian restaurant is good value, pleasing to taste with a warm atmosphere with attentive staff. Took a bunch of friends here, garlic naan bread- yummy, tasty curry dishes and byo wine if you want.
