Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I would come back for the chilly paneer but the whole menu is just as delicious! Great service and Byo wine. Honestly, if you're a fan of Indian food you shouldnt still be reading this, you should be there ordering! Takeaway option also great when...we're staying nearby.More

On arrival the restaurant was empty (I now know why) and the worker behind the til continued to play on his phone for a moment or two before greeting me. I noticed the decor and cleanliness of the restaurant left much to be desired. I...ordered the butter chicken lunch combo with fanta as the drink. He came back with a glass of coke and then changed it when I reminded him that I ordered fanta. Then the meal arrived and I was immediately shocked by the colour of the meal, it was bright blood red, they had obviously used a heap of food colouring powder. Upon tasting the sauce I was shocked further by how insanely sweet it was, it tasted more like a dessert than a curry. A few minutes later he returned to ask how my meal was and I told him that it was much too sweet to which he responded "That is how Butter Chicken is" and I agreed that it is usually sweet but not THIS sweet but he wasn't very interested in listening to my opinion. He wandered off and came back with the menu to show me that I should order Tikka Masala next time if I do not like it so sweet. I reiterated that I love Butter Chicken but this one simply had too much sugar added, he disputed it and even said "I have been in the industry for five years so I know that all places serve it very sweet like this". I could not believe how condescending how sounded and didn't care to argue it with him although he did eventually apologise. Overall, I will dissatisfied and will not be returning to this restaurant.More

We went for lunch and were impressed with the service which was fast and friendly, we had entree and mains, the entree was a variety of nibbles, wonderful and tasty. As we were gifted a voucher by a friend , we had the choice of...3 mains, we had Butter chicken, Beef Rogan Josh, and Lamb Korma accompanied by a bowl of rice. Both my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our meal and will certainly go back and will recommend Indian Flavours to any of our friends and family.More

The worst Indian meal I’ve ever had. I ordered the Palak Paneer curry, Tandoori prawns and kachumber salad. The curry was ok, pretty tasteless however, the paneer had no flavour. The tandoori prawns were tasteless, tiny, and so over cooked they were like rubber. The...kachumber salad was not what I expected - it was thickly cut carrot, tomatoes and cucumber. I’ve only ever had kachumber salad that was small diced red onion, cucumber and tomato. I don’t eat carrot so this wasn’t what I wanted. And the tomato was so mushy (it was obviously not a fresh tomato) I couldn’t eat it. Very disappointed and not worth $35.More

I have only had takeaway from here. In my opinion it is the best curry I have had. It has so much flavour which is really good, I also ordered an Garlic and Cheese naan. This is the best naan I have ever had. Very...light and fluffy and bursting full of cheese. Only down side is I thought the curry needed a bit more chicken. They were a little sparing on the chicken compared to other curry shops. But other than I would definitely have curry from there again!!More

We stopped in for dinner the other night and had an incredibly delicious meal complimented by the great service. The food was so tasty and the service was extremely friendly; we left with full stomachs and big smiles. I would definitely recommend this place especially...for the lamb shanks, butter chicken, and chocolate naan!More

Wow, the flavours, the service and the company wasn't too bad either. I'd done the booking via their website on the Monday for a Wednesday evening before a show. The had sent a txt msg the next day to confirm the booking, a personal note...too which both my wife and I thought that was a nice touch. We sat down, ordered some starters and a beer and enjoyed the atmosphere with great conversation on what an interesting night we were going to have, we also ordered our mains. Our party of Four, enjoyed the starters and spoke that it was a generous amount for a starter, (the males in the group are large eaters.) Sipping our beer and wine (for the ladies) the house staff were onto every meal timing as when we had finished our Starters not long after the table was cleared and the mains followed. The aroma struck us again and we were enjoying the food even before the forks hit the plates. I tend to like my Indian cuisine rather hot, in fact, I often go "Indian" hot, not just Kiwi Hot, for some reason, I decided to go "Kiwi" hot tonight, and, just as well. The heat of the spices were perfect. my wife goes mild and that was what she got. It isn't often that you get what you ordered in a curry. As stated previously, both males are rather big eaters, but, we both had to get a doggie bag, (tasted just as good the next day also) We all agreed that we will definately eat there again.More

We have a favourite Indian Restaurant in Hornsby, Sydney, but Indian Flavours compares very favourably! We enjoyed a wonderful meal, with smiling service and courteous attention from all the staff. We had a voucher which was honoured exactly as it said, with good sized portions...and beautifully cooked and presented food.More
