Wow. We had a selection of chicken, lamb and spinach dishes and all were excellent. It is not often I go to an Indian that manages to pull off meat and the veg dishes with equal aplomb. Unfortunately the breads were not at the same standard. Not bad but a little burnt. We will be back to sample the breads... More

Wanted a nice meal to end our holiday here in NZ. Thought of Indian as we hadn't had one since being here. Looked up on trip advisor and saw mixed reviews on this place. Well I have to say that although it wasn't busy the staff were lovely. Helpful with our choices and we had a good chat with them... More

Visited this restaurant whilst in New Zealand. The waitress was lovely and helpful and the meal was ok but to be honest I have had better curries. I am from the UK, perhaps we are just used to something different so don't let me put you off. Give it a try.

I think people in Hamilton know this is a good restaurant as it was very busy. The service is friendly and if you like Indian food, you'll like this place.

This was my first visit to an Indian Restaurant for some time. I was impressed with the Menu options. They offer a variety of traditional foods and you can choose Hot, Mild, or Very Mild. I enjoyed trying some of the Vegetarian and Chicken dishes with Naan bread,Papadums and Rice. The Staff were friendly and helpful.

Our group of friends was made to feel very welcome. Service was great and the food very tasty. Naan bread was especially good. Even though we stayed into the evening we didn't feel pressured to leave. Thank you for a memorable evening.

We have chosen to present some of the more characteristic, yet legendary dishes from North India, especially the Punjab. Our preparation makes our food beautiful to behold and addictive to the palate.
