A large group of us came here for dinner one evening, fast service although the woman wasn't always the most welcoming and did come across as being rude a few times. The food was pretty quick to arrive, and it was amazing, vegan options are readily available if you ask which are suitable. We did see the take away menu... More

We enjoyed an authentic Indian meal on our first night in Wanaka. The service was excellent and the food absolutely delicious. I would highly recommend this establishment over the other Indian restaurants in town.

Menu was large, service was good, seats not... More

Got a takeaway which I ordered on the phone. All dishes come in whatever heat strength you like. To cut it short, 4 levels of heat, namely - none, medium, hot and indian hot. I chose medium and got my mouth readjusted by an overload of cayenne, which was added to increase the heat level. Lazy way of cooking and... More

Very tasty, surprised as we haven't yet experience a decent curry in NZ yet. Reasonably priced and a large amount, just make sure you add the Tax on before you work out the price. Nice and quick too.

Went here on Monday night, ordered the Mango Chicken and it was the best I have ever had. I always order the Mango Chicken if it's on the menu and have never has one as good as this. I could actually taste the mango and the chicken. Just as they both should be. Also had the garlic naan stuffed with... More
