Sensational Indian food - best in Melbourne. The Chicken Biryani is amazing and the curries are totally authentic. Great now that you can eat upstairs or downstairs.
Went there with family and I love their biriyani most.very good service.
I like this restaurant too much. very good food. quality is very good. Very tasty. nice environment and very good location. I will go there again.
They serve tasty quick food for lunch option. This place is always busy and you can see why. I always come here for the briyani!
Good food, good service! Just hope there would be more heating and tables in this place! It's a good thing we booked via Quandoo or else it would be hard to find a spot for our group!
Friends from Singapore enjoyed the food. Very busy at lunch time. It took a bit of time to get our ginger tea but worth the wait. Thanks.
Delicious food and very quick service - restaurant is very clean too. Our reserved table was comfortable and next to a window. Great for team catchups!
Great Indian food & very fast service. Went with a large group still no issues. Recommend the chicken Korma!
Below par service when busy. Decent taste but Food not authentic in terms of what someone might expect. Wouldn't try north Indian dishes if after authenticity. South Indian is their forte.
