The menu was explained in detail which was helpful when choosing our meals. The food was delicious. I would highly recommend the chickpea salad if available.

Impressive food. Very creative and fresh. The wait staffs are not experienced.

Really good food and a wonderful alternative to most other Indian restaurants who offer traditional, boring Indian food. Excellent service, great views and really great menu.
Thank you Gary, My training is in traditional Indian food and I've been operating Grace of India in Milsons Point with my father for a long time now! Lavendra dishes are items I've always wanted to put on a menu to reconceptualise the view on Indian food. Thanks for trying! See you again soon.

We visited recently taking advantage of the special. This was my 2nd visit. And to have recommended others who have loved the food The food is really good and offers a different slant to the Australian Indian restaurant The service is great The only problem we had was value. We had s table of 3 so when upping the serve. Price of entrees seem to be significant I the wine list is limited and pricey. Would recommend NYO
Hi Alli, Thank you for your thoughts and feedback. Next time you're in the restaurant please speak to the person taking your orders and we'll be able to help you get the most value out of your dining with us. See you soon.
