In a nutshell
One of my best memories!
We've eaten at this restaurant the last couple of times we've been driving through to Sydney, and found it great both times.
For a fairly budget restaurant (man meals around $12-$18) the service was really excellent - attentive, and our waiter had a good sense of humour when my husband asked him if the old lady who kept coming in and out of the kitchen and checking on things was his mother (adding that she looked like the old woman from the Kumars on tv, which she really did!)
There's even an old indian man in a turban (perhaps the father of somebody working in the restaurant) who wanders up and down the street outside the restaurant, asking people coming out if they enjoyed their meal.
Rather unique service.
On the restaurant walls are framed certificates - seems they've won quite a few local awards for their restaurant.
The restaurant is also BYO (bottled wine only)
Favorite Dish: I think I had the lamb rogan josh last time, and it was rather delicious.
My husband found his vegetarian meal to be quite delicious.

I had heard that there really were Aldi stores in Australia, but I had never ever seen one. For those who don't know Aldi: It's a German chain that offers a wide range of drink, food and other things, it is very cheap, but still with quite a good quality (yes, this is debatable, but it's the opinion of many, many people, so let's not be snobbish!).
When German people first hear that Aldi made it to Australia, they of course think that this is very funny - so I was happy when after having spent ten months in Australia in total, I finally found an Aldi store in Albury! And it was even funnier when I saw that they had imported the whole German supermarket system to Australia, which is quite different compared to how supermarkets work down under.
It was really crazy - the whole interior and everything just looked like in Germany, the sounds and smells were the same, and even a lot of the goods on offer, although there were of course some differences.
I bought a lot of things, just to have a change from the usual Coles/Woolworth things, and I am still smiling about this experience :-)
