I don't have any photos coz if you get curry delivered you know what it's like but hey, in a regional town getting good Indian food is worth the comment. We have had many dishes, they have all been of excellent quality with generous ingredients...that are properly cooked, never tough and all lean and good. Having recently seen how much butter goes in a butter chicken, I'm probs going to give it a miss next time but gee it's a good one here. Achari beef was really good but I've had many things. There are a range of pakoras and such, the chicken dipped in batter as a pakora is not something I've seen before but will again. Fish pakoras, mushroom pakoras. Many options. We like a naan and they are of course better in the restaurant, fresh from the oven but even in delivery they've been good. Excellent and recommended coconut rice. Fairly usual prices for a regional town...which is to say more than you'd pay in Sydney but it's great to have access to quality Indian food without hassle especially after a few drinks that would be a 50 dollar taxi experience into and out if town: therefore value nicely recouped. Very much recommend this restaurant and I promise that one day, after all this COVID thing, I'll dine in.More

I had the beef vindaloo it was ok, had reasonable heat my wife had Lamb Adraki it was refreshingly nice with ginger. the stand out for the night was the naan bread service was polite and unobtrusive.

Regularly order from here. Never been unsatisfied with anything served. The butter chicken is the best I have ever had. Friendly staff, and service is quick. Could not recommend enough. You get your moneys worth and then some.

This has to be the best Indian food I've had in Australia. We had the lamb vindaloo and lamb korma, both were delicious and the meat was extremely tender. The naans are also very good. Cant beat this place, I'll be back. Thank you. On...a side note the staff were really great.More

Food here is seriously good, the service though was slow for us, no issues with taking our order or food delivery, but we had to wait 10-15mins to get the drinks we ordered which was poor given the restaurant was not busy

Lovely service, genuine Indian food made with skill. Delicious coconut rice, beef Curry and naan followed by a divine cup of Masala Chai. Atmosphere is pleasant, open and airy but with a nice Indian feel. Was really impressed and enjoyed my time there. Best Indian...food I've had ever I think. No 1 on Trip Advisor and didn't disappoint. Will go back when I'm in Lismore again.More

Honestly did not expect to have what I’d say is the best Indian food I’ve had in Australia, in Lismore. Excellent flavours, with a wide selection of dishes, the Flavour of India is a must if you’re after a Indian feast and you’re in the...area!More

We live in Yamba, and needed to visit Lismore today. We happily parked in front of this place. We had business in Lismore, and, on returning to our vehicle, decided to have lunch. Did not want any of the lunch “specials”, went for the full...menu. So glad we did. Punjabi Chicken!!!!! Fantastic, amazing, and the rice, just sheer perfection. Brought a take away home. Well worth the trip from Yamba to Lismore and return, to have lunch there again. Staff amazing, so friendly and helpful. Will definitely return, and return!!!!! One of the best Indian restaurants that we have visited in many a year.More
