Great Indian fare, extensive menu, we opted to take away as restaurant was very busy which was a great sign. Bought far too much food! massive portions. Great value.

Went here for a dinner Saturday night of Easter and place fully booked out. As it was easy walking distance from our motor inn we thought, after grabbing a menu, that it looked like there was a wide range of meals available so gave it a go. Great choice.

I've eaten here a few times, and previously thought kind of average. The last was qualitatively different. Such a nice meal. Chicken korma, rice, garlic naan, followed by those yummy syrup soaked balls and mango kulfi. The chicken was tender, sauce flavourful; the rice fluffy perfection, and the naan was wonderfully light. One dish was enough for two people to... More

Upon questioning another waiter, he told me that they make the dish more Chinese to suit the NZ market. Not a problem, just... More
