We were so impressed by this restaurant the first time we went that we ended up going again the next night. Great entrees, mains and naans and all at a reasonable price. Best Indian food I've found in NZ and I live here!

if you want excellent Indian food this is the place to go. The restaurant is situated in an old house which has been opened up, but with some rooms that can be shut off if desired.

Probably the best curry I've had. Lamb vindaloo with a real kick and beautiful flavours. Great to see an Indian restaurant that serves up a rich tasty curry that's actually HOT
