Enjoyed the excellent food and service of this restaurant for the first time. Best garlic Naan we have ever had in Christchurch, and we have been to quite a few Indian restaurants in our time here. The Beef Madras was divine. Happy to recommend.

We really enjoyed our meal here. The ambiance was fantastic, service very good and the food excellent. Would highly recommend the prawn pokora for an entree and of course the kingfisher beer on tap.
