We're here today for dinner

that has good customer service throughout my stay in Brisbane
I was very amazed and impressed!
Ambience is good, except for the overwhelming air-conditioner
They played traditional Indian instrumental music


Three pieces of Pappadum (crisp lentil wafers) was served
You may purchase additional ones for $2.00 (4 pc)




We ordered
Chicken Biryani Rice

Absolutely delicious, the lamb was tender and the rice was fragrant
Also you may choose between Mild/Medium/Hot
I choose Hot and it was satisfying
However, the portion size was.. Stingy!
