I've been eating here for 12 years - never had a bad experience. Food is truly delicious & authentic. Nice setting for a romantic dinner

This is a restaurant that I have dined at several times now. I cannot speak too highly. The menu is extensive and very reasonably priced, the food is right up there with the best I have experienced. It is excellent. I have travelled widely all over the Far East over the last sixty years, and really do recommend The Indian Café. Lovely relaxing atmosphere, with lots of parking practically at the door. Service is great ---the staff are really nice. You ought to check it out !! Try the lunch platter between 12 and 2pm
for a selection of what is on the menu for the day.Cheers

This restaurant has been here for some years with the most amazing hostess!!
The food has never changed,and i guess that's good,however a tiny tad of attention to detail on the part of the wait staff would rather good..
Whilst the food always seems very salty for a bit of a treat now and then I guess is fine.
But once again we wouldn't rush back as desserts with our banquet were forgotten.
And a discount to cover really doesn't suffice...shame really as we are limited here and the price isn't able to be compared because of these restrictions.
There's always room to improve and the motto..on time,every time,100% of the time might be something to look at

Indian feast to celebrate Christmas Eve!

Lovely appetisers - the tandoori lamb chops were delicious!

Main course curries were equally yummy. Nicely spiced, well cooked. Lamb rogan josh was particularly well cooked chunks of lamb
