We just had dinner on the 25 July 2012. We had entree, main course and dessert. I love this restaurant very much, definitely going back next time. The ambient was great, huge space and tidy. Staffs were extremely polite and helpful. We ordered a mix entree which was a bit small portion for 3 people but i still loved it.... More

Sad we discovered this place on the last day of our Queenstown trip.! The Daal was the best I had in Queenstown. The ambience is great and the hosts welcoming. Sumptuous food in a rustic environment! Recommended!

We really enjoyed our meal in this large, very attractive restaurant. We had a window seat overlooking the street, so it was very light. Menu was standard Indian, and our choices were well prepared, spiced as we requested. And the beer was COLD!

Fresh ingredients and freshly prepared food. Upon request, can authentically cook without oil, butter, ghee etc. The only Indian restaurant I kmow that actually does so. Light on the stomach. Delicious. They take pride in what they do. Warm and hospitable service. Go try them out.
