Unfortunately it wasn't a great experience. I ordered 2 curries, a chicken and a beef. When it arrived it was 2 chicken curries. The owner didn't offer to change the chicken curry to a beef, but right at the end of the meal he brought me a small container of beef curry. So he did redeem himself!! Also on the website it said the cost would be between $11-13. He charged me $14.
Great experience. Warm and friendly service. Tasty meals. Small but cosy place in the heart of the city. Just a few minutes from the Navatel where I stayed.
Food very good, probably the best curry in Melbourne. However, the setting feels as though you're eating outside in a corridor, rather than in the restaurant itself.
