There's car parking around the back but side-streets close by also have good parking. The restaurant is in an old house that has been thoughtfully refurbished and the way this... More

Family of 5, found this restaurant and very pleased. All meats very tender. Curry not too thick but pleasantly filling and aromatic. Very good service, felt extremely happy to be customers there. Would recommend to anyone looking for good Indian food in Christchurch.

We were asked if there was a special occasion and dietary requirements. Which i though was first class. The table was spacious and comfortable. The music and aromas of... More

I booked for a romantic dinner on the 29th November. I planned to propose and thought this would be a good choice. We had a very tasty dinner and my fiancé just loved the chicken saagwala and said it was the best she had ever tasted. The staff were wonderful. I asked the manager to bring the engagement ring in...
