Dated decor and ambience but very attentive and speedy service with pretty good food. Chicken Vindaloo and a lovely Dhal were top notch although many milder options. Good options for vegetarians. Not the best curry in the World as per some o.ther reviews but in a good area of town for drinks, theatre and other late night entertainment. Would happliy... More

As soon as entering the restaurant you are greeted and sat. All the staff were friendly and knew the menus well. Great selection of vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes, breads, rice etc. Also stocking a good selection of beers and wines and a very tasty Harvest cider which I'd not had before and went down a treat with my meal. Everything... More

The food and service were second to none. I would highly recommend this place. You are spoilt for choice in Wellington for great places to eat but this would have to be one of the best Indian restaurants I have ever eaten in.

They have a great lunch-menu with dishes for 12 dollars including rice and naan-bread. Been here before for dinner and they have over 60 dishes to choose from.... More
