We had a great time dinning here. We had the chili chicken, dumplings steamed, tom yum sup, ginger stir fry and Sinapore wok nodles. The Wok Noodles were amazing. Very friendly service.

Our guide recommended this place. The food was great and fairly reasonably priced. During the 2 weeks we spent in New Zealand this was one of our top 5 favorite restaurants.

This place serves nice north Indian food. I ordered Daal Makhni and butter Naan. The preparation was nice and Daal was delicious. Butter naan was soft. Best option to go if you want to eat north Indian food in Franz Josef. menu options are limited...More

Was pleasantly surprised by the food. I ordered 2 curries with rice. It was very authentic and I didn't expect that in a small town like Franz Josef. Good friendly service and staff. Glad I came here and overall a pleasant experience..

Really enjoyed our meals. This cafe offers a real ecclectic mix of eastern foods. Our meals were delicious. Loved the welcoming decor also.

They do serve a kind of fusion Indian food which can be said to have some 'north Indian' type dishes. But it is quite basic & not very authentic. Considering it is in a very remote area, it suffices. S.G.Aney
