Our family are visiting Palmerton North and at the advice of our motel, chose to get an Indian takeaway. We chose chicken korma and chicken Tikka masala. We also got a side order of Naan bread and poppadoms. Cost came to $80 which is reasonable. Highlight was the Naan bread which was delicious! The curries were also really tasty and... More

Mughlai chicken which had authentic Tandoor taste( clay oven) and Khaman Dholkla ( Gujarat's well known food item ) was extra ordinary....

Unfortunately when we arrived a fire alarm had gone off in the main building & all the staff & diners were standing around outside (in th rain!) so after waiting for about 15 mins we decided...

We loved the thoughtful service as well as our food. I had a goat dish that was spiced just right, as was the chicken of my partner. Rice was done perfectly, and naan was delicate. Everything served piping hot. And the room was attractively decorated and arranged so that conversation was easy, with little background noise.

I have been to many Indian restaurants around New Zealand and their chicken tikka entree (you will not be disappointed) and their butter chicken is the best I have had. I have gone back there repeatedly and the food and service is consistently great. My personal favourite is the lamb sagwala.

On a visit home to Palmerston North, my family really enjoyed the flavourful food, extensive menu and delightfully attentive wait staff. One of the best and authentic Indian meals we have had. I am happy to recommend it for fellow travellers and locals.
