We did not order a large meal and thought we might have underdone it but we were well satisfied. From the fruit Narn to the chicken and Mango and curried prawns the meal was fantastic

Lovely evening with my family after being dissapointed at Prohibition around the corner. We had a very friendly waitress, fabulous food and there was a nice ambiance. Upscale Indian restaurant, the best I had so far!

Excellent food and excellent friendly service. I had Indian hot beef vindaloo and garlic naan. The naan was fluffy, as was the rice and the vindaloo was right up there with the best I've had. The quotations were also reallt goid to read. Jim

Our favourite Indian takeaway! The curries are lovely, naan's are fluffy and the popadums are crispy and delicious! Although we don't dine in often the restaurant is beautiful and the staff are lovely to deal with.

Came here for dinner and had some nice, different Indian food. Minted scallops as entree, really delicious. The naan breads were good too. Very attentive staff and not too long a wait for the meals. I would definitely eat here again next time I am in New Plymouth.

I eat here often as a very flash establishment but also very well priced. And I had a gluten free naan bread. Epic
