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.

I recently visited Blenheim, and was recommended this restaurant by a number of locals, I have to say since coming from a big city I was not expecting such good quality, tasty food and exceptional service. From the moment I walked through the door you felt welcomed and looked after while not getting the feeling of being hovered over or... More

I've since left Blenheim, but have taken some of Rogers spice mixes with me. My family no longer go out for Indian here in Auckland as I cook it all at home. It's not quite up to his standards, but still beats all the other places and the spices you can get from the supermarket. If you're in town for... More

Friendly staff with varied and interesting menu. The staff were happy to make a curry I had tasted in India also. Tasty tandoori baked naan soaked up the curry perfectly. Highly recommended.

Great menu selection available as a takeaway option. Purchased entree and mains, all well cooked and very tasty. Reasonable prices and quick service. They also have a spice shop with a great range of spices and products for your own cooking.

As a vegetarian I often seek out an Indian restaurant on our travels as you can always safely get a good feed. What surprised for this restaurant was a genuinley varied menu and seemed to have an asian influence on the menu (I'm sure I'm describing it wrongly but some of the dishes had a Indian/Asian fusion feel). There were... More
