We’ve been long time customers of Sunrise and each time we dine here it’s consistently good. Food is great, very tasty. Samosas are great as is the tandoori mushroom. Curries are all good quality and large serves. Service is quick and efficient. The bill was under $75 for three people and that included alcohol. We will keep coming back!

Comfort Food
About the restaurant
A place that feels like home.. I don't mean that in a sense that the place is covered in dog hair, the tv is blaring, the kids are screaming and there's lego all over the floor; more in a sense that you feel welcomed, content and at home from the minute you enter, right up until you leave. We wanted to create a place, that I myself, would want to visit on a regular basis. A place where your name is more important to us than your money is. A place where you feel like a regular from your first visit. A place where you feel like a part of our family. A place you felt you've been before. A place that feels like home.... Ok, so we have fancy wine glasses, twinkling candles, nice chairs and really shiny cutlery, but don't let that fool you... We're humble, both in our service and in our food, and pretentiousness and oversized egos were banished from the premises the day we started trading. We like looking the part, but life's too short for airs and graces...
