Every dish is super expensive but one wouldn't mind paying the price if the quality is good. Every dish we ordered had the smell of raw turmeric powder. Nagpur kadai chicken was so bland - no taste at all except for the smell of turmeric powder. Mughlai briyani tasted nothing like a briyani.. I wonder if the chef had ever... More

This Indian restaurant was a disappointment. Service was slow and there was a bit of arrogance and ignorance. Staff was eager to have cigarette breaks. Outside seating was not cleaned properly. Indian music was too loud. Food was okay though.

Went here for the dinner one night. It's now changed its name to Mumbai Express. Really good and friendly service. Will make any of their dishes to your required level of spice/heat. Food was OK but we found it a bit expensive for curry....

We ate here twice during our stay in Auckland. 3 adults and a 17 month old baby. Very busy spot day and night. Lovely and relaxed even though it was very busy both nights. Attentive staff. Drinks and food came out with no delays. Good kids menu. We had the sharing platter for starters which was very tasty. Main were... More

Had a great lunch there recently. I would honestly describe this place as Fusion Indian/European ish. Was a really nice surprise

Nothing wow about the food or service. The food was on the cold side and bad, undercooked cuts of chicken were included in the curry. Wouldn't revisit which is a pity as it is the closest Indian restaurant to where I live.

The menu had drastically reduced since we went last. And many items were just not available on that day. This is probably because it had been sold and was going to transfer hands the next week. We just had entrees for dinner. The gunpowder prawns were good but not quite hot enough, The salt and pepper squid was very good.... More

We shared a platter and had some drinks and at no stage were made to feel like we were not important enough as we were not having a full meal. Great food, but lacks a little in atmosphere.

I invited business guests to this restaurant and the taste is authentic. Busy place but unfortunately the service was slow. We were advised the food would come out around 30 minute, but we had to wait longer than that. Never mind, food was worth waiting for. They would have got 4/5 from me. I will come back.
