We found this place after searching restaurants in Rotorua on Trip Advisor. After arriving without a booking we realised how lucky we were to even get a table! The service was outstanding, the food was amazing and it was a great price.

My husband and I were recently there for dinner. The food was pretty good. Generous portions. The interior of the restaurant was a little bland. I don't think we were prepared for how rich the food was though, because it was not easy to digest. We had to lie down for the rest of the evening, basically immobile! Maybe lots of butter in the dishes? Not sure. But we actually both liked the chain Little India a little bit better, which we tried in Christchurch.

I'm not sure if the chefs here have actually eaten Indian food before. The Balti chicken seemed to be made from a jar mix!

We also had really awful service, being ignored in order to serve other diners and having to ask for cutlery with each course. Highly overrated and such disappointing food.

A very smart & clean restaurant. Staff where helpful & professional. The food was very yummy & reasonable in price. The Lamb Balti was to die for.

Went here late on the 28/12 around 845pm and the place was full to the brim, we can only get a table outside. Having a peek inside it was full of Indians - clearly a good sign! The food we ordered was delicious- paneer and balti with some breads and rice. Although a bit odd that rice had to be ordered separately as most Indian places now serve them as part of the dish. The raita was watery to my liking. They also forgot my bf's cobra drink order and he had to go get it inside. Plus the definition of the waiter "cleaning the table" was clearing the plates from the previous diners on the table and swishing the rice and other particles off with the used tissue paper. Again, I think customer service overall in Rotorua sucks because they don't work hard for the return customers since mostly people are tourists so they probably don't care.
