  • Food would have been good, had it not taken 1hr 15 mins from order to delivery. Over the estimated time, and less than 1/2 mile away.
    Had to be reheated when arrived.
    cold Drink can also put in hot food bag!

  • Great chicken madras and lamb rojan josh - plenty of flavour. Had to warm up slightly in microwave but no issue with that. Also delivered slightly earlier than expected which was great.

  • It took an hour and 50 minutes to arrive and when it did our curries were floating with oil and the goat curry had hardly any meat on the bones. Not worth the money spent at all and won't be ordering from there again.
    2 stars awarded for the naan, poppadoms and rice otherwise would have been a 1.

  • Excellent curry on both chicken balti and chicken madras with pilau rice and naan bread - arrived within the hour as ordered and very very tasty. Was slightly cold so needed to warm all up in the microwave but was also a very cold night so not the end of the world!

  • Bit slow on delivery but that’s probably because it was a rainy Thursday night in Sydney. Asked for extra veggies and for the curry to be very hot but didn’t get the veg and curry was mild. That aside, it was delicious!

  • I live 10mins from the restaurant. They confirmed my order for 1hr5min after order. It actually arrived 2 hrs 10min later (over an hour late). When I called the restaurant (@35 mins late) they told me there was a problem with the driver being given the wrong address for another order. I asked them to speak with the driver to get an ETA for my order and call me back. They never called me back and the food arrived another 20mins later. Absolutely terrible.

  • Food was amazing but when you order 8 separate mains, containing multiple orders of the same dish in differing levels of spice, you kind of assume they will write the name and spice level of the dish on the container to help you differentiate :/ Other than that very confusing thing, food was great and delivery guy was very patient. Please consider writing this information on your containers in future for people's convenience!

  • The Colonial is one of those restaurants that delivers quality every single time.

    Their samosas , tamrind chutney & mint chutney are one of the best you can find in this area .

    Biryani 8/10
    Samosa 8/10
    Customer service 10/10
    Mango chicken 7.5/10
    Tikka masala 7/10

  • This was the worst Indian food I've had in Australia in 8 years. The Butter chicken was sweet like a heap of sugar was thrown in it. The chicken tasted overcooked and dry. The Paneer Tikka Masala also had some sugar but was eatable even though the paneer tasted old. The naan's were soggy, sticking to the bag they came in and they were uncooked at places. For the amount of money I paid, I expected the best Indian food but this was a disgrace.
