We drove all the way from my eden to botany to have lunch here among bad traffic. When we reached, it was 2:15 pm. The restaurant closes at 2:30 pm. We were told that they can not serve us since it too late. They can do only takeaway. Which means we would have to drive back to Mt eden to have lunch. Disappointing.

We have dined at the Botany South branch of the Punjabi Dhaba many times over the years and always return for more. The host, Hardeep Singh, is always welcoming, the food is well prepared and presented and at a reasonable price. We have enjoyed the spices and flavours of the meals and recommend our friends to go there.

My partner and I went to the Howick restaurant in Cockle Bay and were severely disappointed. He likes your food and recommended we go there but it was just a disaster.

We ordered and waited about 40 minutes before complaining about the wait after seeing people served and fed. They seemed uninterested and told us they forgot our order. We received our extremely average food and paid our full price for it with no apology.

Their butter chicken is not creamy it is like tomato puree. Not my thing at all.

So so disappointed and will never go back.

We visited this resturant with my husbands family. All of us thoroughly enjoyed our butter chicken and garlic naan bread.

The service was great, and we loved the fact they only charged $15 for each main during 'happy hour' (5-6pm) on a Saturday night.

We will be back!
