Fancy a light snack and a Lassi? Feel like curry with a freshly-baked naan bread (our spinach and cheese is incredible)? Or want to take full advantage of our Gourmet or Family Banquet? Take your pick and remember not to leave town without also trying Flame’s “Good Times” Sizzling Platter… It’s legendary! So, whatever your appetite, mood or fancy join us for an unforgettable dining experience and your very own delicious, twisty, Flame-infused memory of New Plymouth to take with you.

“Authentic dishes with good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2012

The food is full of flavour, comes out in cute dishes and they are all well priced. The place is always busy so staff are sometimes very busy but they always make an effort to tend to you where they can. Atmosphere is very upbeat - i noticed they have a back room that you can book for private functions which is always a good idea. Would definately go back.

“One word described my meal..........WOW”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2012

i was walking up Devon St and saw the $12 meal deal had butter chicken ,rice and naan i.e the usual.
One word described my meal......WOW.

.

Made reservation to return that night to eat like a last supper, and wash it down with a "8% king cobra"
Tandoor chicken, butter chicken and kheema naan. Sweat on the forehead from eating this is the way i like it.

Never have i eaten at same restaurant twice in same day.
Staff were friendly and attentive.
The toilets, dining and kitchen areas are clean thankfully

The food, the atmosphere, the staff the service were all fantastic. A word of warning - if you order your curry ''hot'' - it truly is hot....
