We had decided to order... More

The experience was reflected in the stars.. hehe Love these guys. My friend is intolerable to salt. We forgot to tell them. The meal was replaced by the understanding staff. We experienced the best beef vindaloo. EVER! That was amazing. The atmosphere was great. Lovely music. Clean tables, utensils and floor. We will be back again.

We had a magnificent meal at the Indian Affair tonight. Mixed Platter for starters, followed by Vegetable Korma and Mango dessert. The service was faultless, so much so, that I believe the "Royals" (presently in N.Z.) would have been impressed! It was that good. Keep up the good service Harry and the diners will come...

We were quite late, and he staff were still very happy to have us, without any pressure of closing soon. We ordered the chicken saag and the chicken jalfrezi, and it was easily the best Indian food we had. The... More
