Nice place, not too expensive. Dosas were OK but filling was strangely floury. Wine list was limited but ok, considering. Not really authentic or special in any way but Ok for Wellington.

My wife and I visited here one cold winters eve and we're drawn in by the delicious smells wafting onto Cuba street. The satay sauce on the satay chicken was heavenly, and copious. Sadly the chicken had the texture of cheap water injected chicken, and was a little disappointing. The lamb curry was superb. Beef rendang taste was great, the... More

Naveen and his team will take great care of you, whether you choose to dine in, pick up, or have it delivered. The food is always tasty, freshly prepared, and on your table in a flash.... More

Good place for a very satisfactory meal. Good value for money. It was fun to sit and enjoy the interesting décor. I am not a great fan of Indian but I really enjoyed this meal. Prices reasonable. Very handy to our hotel (Comfort).

We have been going to this inexpensive little Malaysian restaurant for six years now and the food is consistently good. Good value with most mains at $15 to $19 and fair servings. I have read the negative reviews around how small and crowded the place can be- absolutely true, not the place to go for a quiet night out or... More

The place is always full so we tought we would give it a try. First, I'll start with the positive. The main thing was the price. It is one of the most affortable average/good quality for malaysian/indian I've tried so far in Welly. We ordered the butter chicken, the ayam panggang and the masala curry. The food taste was average... More

Having been to India in the last year, I had been apprehensive to have Indian cuisine again as it was just so delicious over there! Not disappointed. We came as a group of 9 for a BYO and all went away full to the brim with good food. The goat curry, butter chicken and chicken korma were knock-outs. Delicious. The... More
