I was very surprised to find Indian food of this quality in Picton. I had their Chana Masala Curry which had rich tomato flavours. Have to say this is the best Chana Masala Curry I have tasted. We also had Madras Curry, Butter Chicken and Honey Chilli Chicken. All dishes were very tasty. Basic decor but tidy. When the food... More

Honestly among the best Indian food I've had in NZ. Incredible to find a place like this in little Picton. I had the lamb korma. So tasty! Service was fast too.

Was in Picton for a night and decided to find a place to eat when I stumbled across this place. I was served my the manager: Anita and I asked her for some vegetarian recommendations. The food hit the table and I was blown away. Very complex flavorings. Probably the best Indian food that I've had outside India. Appetizer, entree,... More

We had a pleasant evening meal here. Meals can be ordered as hot or as mild as you like. As is usual with Indian food the final bill can be quite hefty if you like the chutneys, the raita and the pickles etc. as I do. Service was good.

Just not up to the standard of many of the Indian restaurants in CHCH or maybe we were spoilt by a visit to the fantastic Spice Room in Wanaka earlier in the year. The menu is not extensive but that is fine. I had butter chicken which was in a tomato sauce which tasted very much like tomato soup. Not... More

We stumbled around Picton looking for decent food. Rejecting all of the early 1990's inspired menus, and indifferent wait staff we encountered, we decided to try this. First - I have no idea where the "management supplied" photo on trip advisor comes from - but it sure is not this restaurant. It does not look like this - nothing like... More
