Walked in while in Arrowtown, Nice atmosphere, ordered sheek kebab for starter to share which was ok, but the mains of chicken Kadhai ,(hot) and chicken Korma ( medium) were out of this world. Best curry we've had since leaving UK.

It's great to have such a good Indian restaurant here in Arrowtown. We took some people from Sydney here last week and they loved it. The atmosphere is very nice and the food is delicious. Because I can't eat spicy foods, I avoided going there when we first moved to Arrowtown, but my husband persuaded me to go and Im... More

Went there to celebrate my partners birthday and enjoyed every second of it. The decoration is beautiful with a great fire place and the service provided by Afi and Chefs(who delivered the starters themselves, explaining it) was outstanding. We enjoyed our meals just as the wine selection, perfectly pairing our dishes. We're locals and after this amazing indian cousine experience,... More

We are locals in Arrowtown and have popped in a fair bit for takeaways, but decided to dine in tonight. Lovely atmosphere and very smiley, helpful service from Afi. It really is Indian 'fine dining'. Curry's always taste freshly made and unique with lots of flavour. I would like to highly recommend their Coconut Lamb, delicious!

We were craving for good delecious Indian food in New Zealand and found this place during our visit to Arrowtown. Was 100% satisfied with the place. Awesome ambience, good punjabi songs being played and above all awesome North Indian food. Completely loved it. Keep it up.

Always enjoy the food here but found on this occasion the service OTT on the up selling and a bit too aggressive. This would not stop me going again - they have a great range of Indian food

Great service and atmosphere. We made a late booking, we could not get there on time and they kept the kitchen open just for us. We were there for our anniversary with my partner and we ordered a "banquet". I don't remember the exact name of the dish but it was AWESOME. We tried 3 different curries with entrees and... More
