I live in Holder and am pleased to finally see an Indian restaurant open at the local shops (Jehangir). I used to frequent the Jehangir venue in Swinger Hill – have they moved or is this another branch? I plan to check it out but has anyone beaten me to it? What is it like? Swinger Hill could be hit and miss on occasion, eating in was always better than takeaway.

New owners have not met up with the expectation of the very fav indian restaurant ,

Food is not as good as it use to be and the service has gone downhill as well .

There use to be an old bald man, Who was very friendly and prompt in service

Jehangir Holder is 6288 4410
Jenangir Swinger Hill is 62901159

We love the food at Jehangir, and staff are friendly too. They have spruced up the place a little, and it looks cosier now with the new lighting. The heating seems to be okay, we went there recently to dine in, and it was warm inside.

Definitely a nice little place with great food!

anyone got their phone number?

Well we tried Jehangir tonight – the food was great and the front of house service was first rate. But I agree with big red – take a jumper or jacket if you are there in winter they have one piddly little reverse cycle trying to heat an area surrounded by glass – it barely got much above 16-18 degrees in my estimate. The mains were a little slow coming out with a comment that they were short staffed. People also appeared to be waiting some time for take away but not sure if they phoned ahead or not (if not they need to).

Once the food came out though it was fabulous. The banquet #1 was really good value and plenty of food for the 3 of us. The meals were really tasty and they asked us if we needed more bread and rice. It is BYO – if local liquor has something on special the Foodworks in the centre is good for wine.

Dined there once, and food was great. But, they need to so something about compensating for all that glass – just too cold and drafty to have a comfortable evening.

A friend discovered it recently. Having eaten in there recently, he reassured me that a) was a second restaurant for them (they won’t be closing Swinger Hill anytime soon), b) the food was “as good”. Perhaps Sunshine got a bad day’s meal?

Hmm maybe we did get a bad day . Shall try it again and report back

Hi Bazz
I got takeaway on their first night and was quite pleased, although they were a bit overwhelmed by the first night onslaught and I think the food showed signs of being rushed out.
But last Friday we returned with a friend and dined in, and were highly impressed by the quality of the food. This is a step beyond the neighbourhood Indian takeaway fare (eg: Masala Hut in Weston) – the sauces are richer and more complex, the meat had been cooked in the sauce (not cooked by itself and added at the last minute), the samosas etc were freshly homemade. It’s a very small space and the ambience is not great, but the guys in the kitchen know what they’re doing. We had Murg Tikka Masala, Beef Madrasi and Kofta Zafrani – all are recommended. The mains are all around $20 dine in or 20% off for takeaway. There’s a supermarket next door to get BYO from. I have no idea about the relationship with the Swinger Hill branch though.
We definitely plan to return regularly – it’s well worth it.

I’ve been there twice, and quite liked it. I’m prepared to believe that they’ll improve too.

Was so excited as well with the new neighbourhood restaurant and decided to get take away last night. Unfortunately I was completely let down by the food and won’t be going back at this stage.
