“Good food, high price”
Reviewed July 12, 2010

Been here a couple of times now, mainly because we've had people come visit us and ask about this place. Yep 5- 7 years ago this place had awesome food, good price enjoyable atmosphere. Now we prefer someother places but will still visit occasionally as we like veriaty.

The service has actually got better however, the place is the same since it first opened not that there is anything wrong with it. but food wise i dont know what the owners were thinking when they decided to up this and charge $17-19 per main dish, espically when the portions are so small. A top class restaurant in town would charge this much but not a place that also charges you for rice.

The Naan is reasonably priced but i would say if you want a hearty meal look elsewhere we dont drink alcohol and 5 of us somehow managed to spend almost $200 with only one softdrink each, granted we like our food but still without plugging other places there is more out there for less.

I would still say its worth a try as their ingredients are fresh which a lot of places in NZ still dont have, most settle for frozen or tinned.

“Great restaurant, always good”
Reviewed June 11, 2010

This is a good restaurant with some of the best curries I have had, and not just in NZ. Staff are always friendly and helpful, well worth talking to for advice and I have never had anything but good meals here. Even the desserts are good, so often a weakness in other restaurants.The ambience is good for such a large room and I make a habit of visiting whenever I can.
