One of the best Indian meals we have ever had. Toast starters and 2 shared mains were as much as we could eat. Many thanks.

We went to this restaurant because it was number 1 on trip advisor and it did not dissapoint it was beautiful. We ordered the cumin rice, mango chicken, lamb shank and the prawns for a starter. If you eat at this restaurant do yourself a favour and order the mango chicken and cumin rice. The person i went with described the mango chicken as orgasmic and i agree. The lamb shank was good but the mango chicken was just that good that you didnt need to eat anything else.

Was so excited to try but thought it was average. Chicken was grisly and I had to spit it out. Red wine was off. Didn’t complain at all and received a discount so I think they were aware they were having a bad night.

My partner got to have his first deep fried onion rings since being diagnosed with Coeliac disease. The food was fresh and so so tasty. Staff were very friendly. Cost was very reasonable compared to other restaurants we visited in NZ.

We shared a couple of dishes, cumin spiced rice was superb. Beef and chicken curries were also delicious. Friendly staff and free WiFi added to the night.
Definitely highly recommend.
