Well located. Huge menu. Fresh food including some unique items, most especially the family recipe, slow cooked for more than 24 hours. I have been many times and the food and service are always excellent.

This place is definitely a cut above other curry houses in Wellington (most of which are pretty good anyway). On arrival we were asked if we were in a rush or wanted a more leisurely meal (definitely the latter as we were catching up with friends) so they could tailor the service to what we wanted, which was great. We... More

The service was by far the most civilised we've experienced in NZ without having to pay $$$. The food was also done well for the price. The decor is a little run down and menus are well worn but this did little to deter us from having a great experience.

My first day at Wellington on NZ holidays and opted for dining at this place. We were warmly welcomed by smiling staff. I showed my concern for food colourant and the manager was so courteous that he came up to my table to explain that the restaurant don't add artificial colour to food. Amazing treatment and mouth watering Indian food... More

Two of our four had eaten here on many occasions and recommended it. We had an excellent meal with shared vegetable samosas and onion baji starters, then we pooled four menu choices. We found their "medium" heat on the hotter end of medium but all delicious. Quite a few Goan specialties which were new to us. We particularly liked the... More

Popped in for the $12 lunch and was blown away by how good it was considering you pay more than this for your typical shopping mall, sitting there all-day food-court 'curry'! I had the lamb vindaloo which was spicy and reminded me of home (UK) for it's quality and depth. I find NZ Indians generally to be way poorer in... More

Awesome food and very courteous staff. The interiors can do with a bit of touch up to give that warm ambience. The food was served hot and was full authentic Indian flavour. Felt like food in India.

I have been going here for about 15 years - really fantastic food and service that makes this fine dining. We regularly do the lunch special as a large group and family dinners here. My personal favourite is the Gethu Masala.
