Called in on a monday. Very, very happy with the food. The meat was great and very tender. Service was professional. However, we were the only group in the restaurant (literally) and the service seemed very slow. Probably because meals were cooked from scratch, which is a good thing! The food was great. Meat very tender.

We found this restaurant around the corner from our hostel (YHA Wellington) and were very pleased with it. We caught them right as they opened for dinner, so it was a slow start, but we were the only couple in the restaurant for a bit, so we didn't mind.

We eat only vegetarian and found this to be one of the best Indian meals we had in New Zealand. The spices were discernible, food well presented, fresh, flavoursome and the portions sensible unlike the excessive helpings we were given in other Indian restaurants in New Zealand. Service was faultless. If we were in Wellington again we would go back.

This restaurant was very convenient for our hotel, so we thought we'd give it a try. We were not disappointed. The service was friendly and efficient, and the food was very nice.

We order biriyani here it was terrible as chef just mixed butter chicken pieces with some spices and served it with rice. Do not eat birayni over here as it totally not worth spending $18. Waiter was bit rude seemed not happy there.. Little India is better alternative.

Visited during a lunch break. Despite it being literally empty, the staff were warm, helpful and very friendly. The food came out fresh and absolutely delicious and full of flavour. Love eating here and have visited twice since!

Two of us ate here to try it via a special deal. We have tried a few of the Wellington Indian restaurants and normally go to one nearby. However our food was so delicious we will transfer our allegiance! The service was reasonable and although we had a deal we looked at prices and thought they were fairly standard for... More
