Perception is everything

This place is run by one of Wellingtons legends who started off with a dairy across the road and has built a curry empire It's a pity he has not spent a bit more on this outlet which is getting more and more tired as the years roll on The carpet is a minefield of muck, the walls and ceiling... read more

I visited this place during one of my business trips and went there on the recommendation of a very close associate who is a fan of this joint. I found the staff very concerned about me as I was carrying my luggage with me [ I was on my way to the airport]. Extremely warm and friendly guys. The food... More

I work in the hospitality industry and the customer service from the team is dismal. The employees not only don't care about rectifying their mistakes but go out of their way to challenge you as well. Naan bread is fantastic but the curries are average.

Not sure why the reviews before mine are so poor as my experience was very good. The food was delicious, plentiful, and served promptly. I'm afraid I'll never award a kiwi Indian 5 stars when they keep insisting whether you want your meal "mild, medium or hot" (you could have a mild vindaloo for heavens sake) and this restaurant was...

I object to being served reheated chicken when I pay full price for my meal. (This was about 7pm on a Thursday night). Will never go there again as this is the second time I have been served below standard food at this establishment. Never again. There are many amazing Indian restaurants to go to in the Petone Lower Hutt... More

I am a foodie and have my own foodie blog in Singapore. While I may not be Indian, I know what authentic Indian food is like. The restaurant can only be described as filthy. The carpet was so dirty that my sandals were sticking to it. My husband and I ordered chicken biryani, butter chicken, korma and garlic naan. The... More

I can't remember the last time I was so disappointed in a meal. We adore Indian food, we eat it weekly and seek it out wherever we travel. Our curries here were complete rubbish - it was if they'd used canned tomato sauce and spiced it up with a splash of pepper sauce - no depth, no texture, no flavor,... More
