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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Fantastic atmosphere, warm and lovely clean and gorgeous setting. Fantastic professional hospitality and staff. They interacted so nicely to our 2 young children including them in conversations. Our children said they loved the staff. Definitely will be back when we come back to hanmer springs...it will be a definite dinner night out. Thank you so much for a lovely enjoyable evening 😊More

Absolutely outstanding food, atmosphere and people. Thanks Arnica and Katherine for a wonderful evening - we really appreciated your hospitality, and thank you for being so warm and friendly ♥️. Also the best garlic cheese naan I’ve ever had.

Absolutely delicious food and wonderful attentive service! Wish we had a place like this back in Queensland! After a long study of the menu changing our minds as it all sounded amazing we ended up with Chicken Tikka Masala and the Lamb Bhuna Gosht and...both were amazing along with the best Cheese and Garlic Naan I've had in my life. Thanks for a wonderful dinner!More

We reserved a table online for 6.30 pm . Arrived on time shown to our table and drinks order taken . Staff took our food order at 6.45 pm . Food was delivered to our table at 7.10 pm . The food was tasty and...we were just finishing the main and contemplating desserts when at 7.30 pm the waitress arrived at the table and announced without warning our table was booked for 7.30 and the customers had arrived so we had to leave. No mention of this was made at the time of our arrival or when the food was delivered . Do not go to this restaurant unless you are prepared to be evicted without notice 20 minutes after receiving your meal..More

Wonderful evening. Great choices on the menu for a large group for our Nan's 90th birthday, with Vegans and Vegetarians, meat-eaters and young children amongst our group. The food was wonderful, everyone was very happy with their meal. The staff were lovely and friendly, and...brought our cake to the table after dinner. The ambience was also lovely, quiet and with lovely lighting and some of us loved the motorcycle and industrial-style light fittings. Thank you to chef's and all wait-staff.More
