Uninspired decor, pleasant but uninspired staff ( Google for details on their pay and conditions here! Not good. Company has recently been fined again so will have "gone bankrupt" again and be "sold" to a cousin. ) Food average but they got the orders wrong.

Very poor service, disinterested staff, bland food and a very long wait. Absolutely nothing going for it at all which is a shame as it has a good location.

We took some overseas visitors here and regretted it. We booked our table the day prior, and when we arrived we were told we couldn't bring our wine in and they were not serving alcohol due to their license expiring. Would have been nice to know this when we booked. We then ordered non alcoholic ginger beers, and instead they... More

A small group of friends and I have recently moved to the area and had heard great things about this restaurant. So when we had a guest stay with us from America we thought this would be a good place to go, have a quick meal then off to enjoy his last night in Auckland. When we arrived we were... More

You get what you pay for and it was enjoyable and pleasant. You could bring your own wine with no extra charge. The food was lovely and plentiful. Thought the staff could have been more pleasant, not saying they were not. However, there was something lacking. It was busy enough which was a good sign. Would I go back? I... More

The service was good. The food was OK. I have had better Indian meals elsewhere. Our main complaint was that the place does not accept normal international visa cards. My wife was going to pay but her UK cards were not accepted (they had been used at other establishments in NZ on this visit). There were no notices warning that... More

Terrible service tonight. Asked three times for an ice bucket for wine. Rice came out and then we waited for food, rice became cold! No cutlery on table, had to help out selves to cutlery from surrounding tables. Took ages to clear the table after we finished, had to ask for drinks, then told no diet coke. Had to go... More

Pretty average tasting food. Service was bad, had to ask for water even though the waiter was at the counter gossiping, the manager was also having a go at his staff while I was casually just eating my food, not the best place.

My wife and I arrived to a quiet restaurant for our booking at 8pm. We were impressed with the interior design and decor of the building. It was warm and cosy while the blustery wind and rain raged outside. We chose our table and after reading our menus we waited an age before we attracted the attention of the young... More
