We had wonderful service, we were seated promptly and asked if we wanted a drink. Water and our drinks were served quickly as was the menus. We ordered a platter for 3 adults and explained that one of us was allergic to prawns, they substituted these with fish which was beautifully cooked. Our mains were all delivered together and were steaming hot and delicious. The service was great throughout the meal and we would definitely go again.

Awesome curry especially the lamb jalfrezi! Love their mango Lassi and spiced Papadom as well.

Room for improvement for the rice served was a bit harden already. The nice curry made up for it though. Worth a visit!

Food and service was great here. We went for lunch and decided to try a bit of everything. The platter to start came out steaming and was delicious. The curries were very tasty. We were well accommodated for our child as they even had a kids combo which is good. Overall a great place to go for great food - The Great India

Food was really really good! The group of 4 of us ordered way too much but we’d definitely rather have too much food than not enough. Staff were lovely and the restaurant was very clean and new. Would definitely recommend.

Definitely visit The Great India. While it has a casual, cafe interior the food and service make up for this. Both were excellent, delicious and reasonably priced. The selection is vast and wonderful to see they list items as gluten free (which most are), or dairy free. They are BYO and are on First Table. Steady stream of customers - takeaways and diners - so its becoming popular. :)

Friendly staff good food.
To provide a better dining experience would recommend separating the dine in from the takeaway.
Lots of room to make great improvements for a dine in experience.

Great. The dining area is bright and very clean, the waitress was very efficient and was very helpful. We had a set menu meal which was fantastic. The set menu even allows you to choose your own main. We'll be back.
