On short notice they were able to seat two people that night. We could see while we were dining that we were lucky to be able to book. It was busy. And for good reason - it was fabulous.

Staying overnight in Ashburton I fancied a curry and found this place thru Trip Advisor. I ordered takeout, was told 10 - 15 mins and when I walked in it was ready. Very tasty chicken korma, lots of chicken and a lovely sauce. Naan was a touch chewy but still very good. I'd definitely recommend them if you're in Ashburton... More

Inexpensive and delicious menu. Dine In, or take away if time is limited. Great menu with friendly staff.

Stopped here on our way to lake Tekapo. 6 of us dined in without any reservation. Staff were very friendly. Our meal came out quickly. Good size portions at reasonable prices. They have a great range of wines. Highly recommended this place if you want to experience quality Indian food.

Both the food and service were great. We turned up without booking and the place was full with dinner and people waiting for their takeaway but they managed to accommodate us.

We were looking for a halal restaurant. Was happy to find Indian Minar which served halal chicken. Food was excellent and the manager was very friendly. Will definitely visit again.
