We went for lunch and were so pleasantly surprised! Best service we received in all of Blenheim. The ladies working: Vinu, Viba, and Rojee were absolutely outstanding and we could tell that they were working so hard and making everything run smoothly. I had the creative curry, I think it was a take on their butter chicken and my husband... More

I am impressed with the food, very freshly cooked and well presented. We had Roger's Balti Masala and the Chicken Korma, with garlic naan bread - all excellent. The portions are large and came out in copper type pots with the rice separately served on a platter. We were given a complimentary Beef Jalfrezi as well. It is a family... More

We bought takeaways from here recently and definitely tasty. A little on the spicier side for those that prefer that, not quite as 'mild' as other places. But a good flavour and the service was very good. They also have an attached spice shop if you're after supplies and gluten free flavour mixes.

Couldn't fault the curry, something a bit different and would certainly go back for that. However was distracted by the presence of flies not only buzzing around us, but dead ones built up along the windowsill next to us. The waitresses were friendly and but didn't seem too interested in serving us. We had to wait too long for menus.

I would give this zero stars if that were an option. The food was awful and the staff seemed completely uninterested in us. We waited 15 minutes for menus, and then another 15 for someone to take our order. It then took us a hour to get our food. Then they messed up our bill, charging us for things we... More

I sincerely regret your dine in experience with us .Due to new 15 years old trainee waitress your order and service were messed-up ..some time it is very hard and difficult for some young staff to work in a busy place ..We will do our utmost best to improve in future but some time we can not guarantee after all...

Although the exterior is unpretentious, when you go in the aromas are fantastic. The food is fresh and very flavoursome. Excellent service too. Best Indian I've had in a long time.
