I have been to many Indian restaurants and this one rates up there with the best of them. It is very good value for money and the surroundings in the restaurant were... read more

Food was delicious! We had the onion bhajee, 2 of the vegetarian curries and some plain naan with raita. Excellent service, very flavoursome food and generous portions. Would highly recommend! We loved it!

Very bad food. Just avoid. Nothing else to write about. If you want indian food go to any other restaurant but this. Kinara on the outskirts of the city has got good north Indian food.

after reading all those good reviews I recommended that place to my partner. Portions were great, service was fast but the food was bland and tasteless

As 2 brits abroad on a month long trip to NZ, we stopped in Riccarton, Christchurch twice whilst we were in South Island.

The food served is more authentic than many other Asian countries, not to mention it is in New Zealand. Staffs are very polite and helpful, giving enough warning if one ordered spicy dish. Dining area, while not fantastic, but is comfortable. Overall an awesome experience! Good stuffs!
