Went last night with the family. Service was great. Had no beef of lamb which was a little strange but what we ordered was just yum. Butter chicken, chicken jalfrezi and malai kofta and just lovely nan breads.

Yummy sweet Mango Chicken and hot Lamb Rogan Josh at really affordable prices for the special lunch boxes take away. Next time will try different menu. Easy to find at the main street on opposite side of Rotorua Mall.

After first finding this Curry house in 2011,when ever we are in Rotorua we go for dinner. Although now under new management it is still a really good curry. Both my husband and I had the goat curry which was superb. Our friends really enjoyed their curry too. Highly recommend

My wife being a very strict vegetarian, her needs were more than adequately met. Average dishes, nothing out of ordinary.
