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.

1st time I have been to Blenheim and this restaurant had a good trip advisor sticker on the door so went in. Sadly to say it was terrible. I had Butter chicken and Garlic nann. The rice was not cooked and the butter chicken tasted like it was in some tomato sauce. The Garlic nann was cold and Im not... More

The food is lovely and the service good, we always enjoy our meals, however the staff disappear after clearing the main course. We have been there a number of times and are yet to be asked if we would like another drink or a dessert. Why have a dessert menu if you don't want to sell it? We are not... More

I am definitely not too fancy about Indian food. But this is simply the best Indian food i have ever tried. Ordered one special curry dish with chicken n mushroom. It's like a fusion Indian food and not the usual one with heavy spices and thick sauce. Will try again with my partner.
