I have been coming here for many years and rave about the food to anyone who is coming to Blenheim. Today I got into Blenheim at 6.20, went straight there and ordered a takeaway, chicken korma, one of my favourites. I got home and the rice was so overcooked it was mushy also unseasoned, and the korma was much thinner than usual and not as flavoursome.
Roger was not at the restaurant at the time and I'm sure he will be hugely disappointed this happened.
Next time I'm there I'll have to ask for the rice to be cooked properly, I think, or maybe check it before I leave the restaurant. At $22 this was poor quality.
I'm sorry I have to leave a review like this as I have a huge regard for Roger's cuisine.

I completely understand you I know the Rice on that particularly night were overcooked but I know that we refunded all your money back this is a very rare mistake we make and especially rice get cooked prior to start.I hope next time you will enjoy our cuisine and express your views on TripAdvisor.... some time it sadden me that most of us share sad news more then the good news...Roger

This is the best Indian food we have ever had and the staff were so very friendly. We even bought some packet of seasoning mix to make back in Australia, if ever you are sick of running a business in Blenheim please come to Melbourne!
