“Gone Downhill”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

Used to frequent this place often on Friday nights and would often have to wait to get a table
But not now , each time I pass notice that it dosnt have the number of clients that it used to and nothing like its Thai opposition , further along the street

The issue was food quality , obviously they had changed chefs or kitchen brigade and new team could not prepare the meals to the previous standard of presentation or taste
Even a basic like Chicken swagalli had the colour of the spinach but couldnt tast any seasonings

All in all a dissapointment , but no worries as the Thai Restaurant along the road now recieves our business
Notice a number of other friday night faces that used to be in Simply India have also moved along

“EXCELLENT Indian Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

I can honestly say this is the best Indian food we've ever had. We've tried many Indian places in the US and were pleasantly surprised by this place. The owner of the hotel we were staying at recommending this place and it was great. Well spiced and not over-powering. If we visit NZ again we will definitely come back here to eat.
