However, our meals this evening were very poor. I ordered a Prawn Masala (hot), my wife a Chicken Jalfrezi (med). Not a hint of Cardamon, Star Anise or Coriander – no depth whatsoever to the sauce, which along with the prawns was very watery. A handful of onions and one or two pieces of green capsicum each. The heat was harsh with no depth and I couldn’t taste any spice in it.
My garlic naan was nice, but had very little garlic on it.
Shame – they are all very friendly, so I hope they sort it out. We’ll be going back to Mirrch next time, or maybe even trying the place up Summerhill which I’ve heard good things about.

My husband is very adventurous and likes to test everything on the menu, whereas I like to stick with the same dishes every time. Neither of us have ever been disappointed.
The only thing I would say is, at those prices, it would be great to have something to cater to children. As we are a big family of 5, every time we have takeaways from here, it costs us around $80…which is a bit painful when I still have to do the dishes afterwards…

Second visit was horrible, first off never phone order with this place or if you do confirm everything 3 times and the background noise is horrible. I picked up my order and a naan was missing, they replaced that and refunded my money (after I told them they would do that). Got home to find that my chicken sagwala was in fact lamb. Yet another call to them to fix up their mistake, this time they delivered the correct meal. Over an hour later from first ordering I sat down to eat my meal I ordered with cold naan bread as I had to wait for my meal to turn up.
Not sure I will be ordering from them again.
Went there last night with my boyfriend. I got a vegetarian curry, he got butter chicken. We also got naans, and onion bahji. My boyfriend wouldn’t try the onion bahji at first because he’d never tried it better and wasn’t sure. We ended up having to go back and get more, he loved it so much. Curry was perfect and authentic tasting.
We tried it again last week same curry the gravy was awesome as last time but paneer was bit firm. We called the restaurant and they were very good. And offered us free curry for our next visit. this time we will like to try different curry. Highly recommended. It’s yummy and very good value for money.
update in feb 13

I did a phone order and I think I went there after 10 minutes and it was already ready! It was really hot still, unlike other places where its cooled down by the time you get the order.
I really loved the garlic naan, its the only place that makes them like that and its amazing!!
I have had butter chicken all around palmy and this has to be my favourite.
Also the workers were very friendly and communicated well.
I think next time I will try medium…
Yet another great rate. Keep up the good work guys. Everyone who likes a good curry has to go try here!
Best to ring ahead though, they make everything fresh, its worth the wait!
