Reviewed 5 weeks ago

Situated within an easy walking distance from the Circular Quay, it is well maintained upscale Indian specialty restaurant, where you can satisfy your craving for good Indian food.

We were a party of 6, but had to wait awhile as it was full. We got in about 2 pm and were warned that the last order would be by 2.15 pm. In fact, our first order was the last.

We ordered a samosa starter, followed by a channa, a daal, a potatoe, a paneer dish, lamb chop (outstanding) and a chicken roll (kathi), finishing it off with a lassi and gulabjamun.
Each preparation showed the trouble the chef had been to. Quite enjoyed the food.

The ambiance and decoration were reminiscent of an India, long since past.

We had a great dinner at the spice room close to circular quay. All tables were booked but the responsible person at the reception offered to call us as soon as there were a table available. And indeed 20 minutes later we were advised that there is a table prepared. Huge selection of different food varieties (chicken, lamb, beef, fish, vegetarian) and also a nice menu for drinks. Our food was freshly done and delicious. Only negative point was that there was huge group with about 20 people that were extremely noisy. Conversation and atmosphere were therefore not really good. As soon as this table left the noice level dropped drastically so that many other couples could also enjoy the evening. Price/ quality is ok and food was very good therefore that we can absolutely recommend this restaurant.

We enjoyed an extremely pleasant evening meal here last weekend.
The waiting staff were attentive, helpful, informative & very friendly.
The menu was extensive & varied, with the food matching expectations.
Cold beer on tap was extremely welcome on a sweltering Sydney day.

My wife and I went one night after a day in the city. Small restaurant near Circular Quay was beyond amazing. Probably the best Indian restaurant we have ever eaten at, and we have eaten in some really good restaurants in New Zealand, England and back home in Florida. Only complaint - tried to go a second night as a last minute change of plans as we loved it so much, but they were too busy to accommodate us!
