Best Chicken saagwala I have had ever! I find myself comparing all other curries to this, and it comes out tops every time. The food is consistently tasty, friendly staff and always fresh, that has become our favourite curry place!

If you want the tastiest Indian style food head to Red Chillies in the Main Street of Pahiatua. The food they serve is Delicious and it's only a 25 minute drive from Palmerston North
