Food is consistent, very well priced and varied. Staff is welcoming, efficient and very polite.The ambiance is great and you can hear each other talking. A great place to meet with friends and have a very enjoyable evening meal.

We had a dinner meal for 2 . Entree was large and we could not finish our meals but the staff were obliging by putting it into containers for us to take away. Price in the medium range and food of good quality.

We couldn't get in the first time we tried because it was fully booked. Got in the second night though and had an excellent meal. All the staff were very attentive and even though it was again busy, there wasn't any delay between courses. Seemed to be popular with the locals.

Although the service had it's moments, we had a very pleasant meal. One of us was vegan and the staff spent time going through the menu marking the vegan options. Our waitress was obviously having her first night on the job and despite her obvious difficulties (especially understanding what we ordered) the rest of the staff allowed her to continue... More

Three or four visits confirms to me that this is the finest Indian restaurant in the South Island. Fresh ingredients, individual flavours and good service. No flock wallpaper!

After spending the afternoon in the nearby thermal pools, my family really looked forward to having our first curry in New Zealand. We booked a table and were greeted warmly by staff.
