“Not the best”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

Now I can't say I'm an expert, but I can say I am a curry adict (as are many poms!). I love my curries - and eat out at least once a week. So when a frind invited us to drive down to Ti Rakau Drive and try a new restaurant, we obviously jumped at the opportunity.
Now its quite a way out of central Auckland - so to drive there is an effort. Is it worth it? Hmmmmmmmmmmmm
Though its fairly easy to find, you have to make a u-turn (and like us get lost at least once) to get into the car park. The restaurant itself is big and bright - so ambiance is a possible 2 out of 10 only. There were a few Indians eating there, so that was a good sign.
But service - the local tortoise zoomed past the waiter...... Slow was not the word. I actually had to get up and go to the bar to order my drink as the waitress wa chatting with the barman...... We ordered a nan bread as a starter - 20 minutes later we were told it would come with the main meal. So we had to hold the mains to eat what we wanted to start with. As to the mains - well, flavour was OK to two of the four ordered - but the other two were actually tragic.

Would we go back? Never.........

“Had a few meals here and enjoyed them all. Quite good quality Indian cuisine.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012 via mobile

A fairly big restaurant and haven't seen it even half full. Good food and friendly service. More authentic than some of the other local Indian places.
