I get a takeaway dinner from this place about once a week. The butter chicken is my absolute favourite - I can't have butter chicken anywhere else because it is never as good. My family and partner also love the food here. I have dined in as well as out, and that was also good. The staff are always lovely.... More

I have been going to Hot Gossip for years and it's still one of my favorite Indian restaurants in the eastern suburbs. Affordable and delicious. Say hi to Uncle

We were a group of four having dinner here on a Saturday night. This was not our first visit. We were surprised to see that the restaurant was not full as the food is well-priced and delicious. However it was a very cold evening and many customers were getting take-away. I love the decor in this restaurant, very colourful and... More

I live in the area but had never been till work friends decided we needed a night out. Well I was blown away. The food was amazing. The staff very friendly & had a couple of jokes with us & the bill was even better. For 4 people, entrees, mains & wine worked out to $25 a head. And we... More

Recently had the pork vindaloo as takeaway. The order came out on time and the service was ok. Flavour was good despite the serious amount of spicy heat. Do not order unless you truly like inferno hot. Extremely disappointed with the amount of meat in the dish. I don't expect a huge portion when I order Indian food as they... More

We had not been to this restaurant for a while and thought it had gone down hill. Serving sizes were short of meat....lots of sauce.Hot Spices seemed to replace actual flavour. Service was a bit hit and miss. We used to go when an older man busily ran around making sure everything ran like clockwork but apparently not any more.... More

His meal was replaced promptly after we moved to another table. My lamb was tough and oily , my garlic nan over cooked and dry. This is the 1st bad meal I have... More
