Good menu selection. We order takeaways to be delivered. Reasonable delivery charge but food a bit pricey. Tasted good though and came hot. Probably wouldn't order as much next time as good sized mains. Took 1 hour to deliver.

A reasonable restaurant with an OK but not special atmosphere, a willing young waitress and good Indian food. My meal was authentic to its origins, tender and well spiced. The dessert menu was very limited, given the true variety of Indian sweet meats there are...More

I had no great expectations and went with an open mind. Fish curry was ok but not outstanding. The green salad was simply sliced tomato, sliced carrot sliced cucumber (the only green) and sliced raw onion. Our coconut rice was dry and lacked flavour

Was expecting you regular curry diner. Not a delicate inspiring culinary experience. Coconut rice, beautifully balanced Rohan josh with a light naan. Gentle an tender tikka. This is a jewel of a place. Absolutely Amazing.

We visited the restaurant after many years. The food was really good and tasty. We had the sizzling hot plate for starters. Very delicious. For mains we each ordered a different dish. There were five of us and shared the dishes. All were very nice....More

Had a great meal tonight - dined early, but the staff made us feel very welcome. Menu - great, with some choices like murgh methi that don't always feature on Indian restaurants in NZ. Servings were generous without being excessive, flavours were fresh, and the...More
