Really enjoyed the great meal. I have travelled widely in South India and the food was fresh, authentic and had terrific flavours. You don't expect food of this quality in a small regional city. It is a credit to all concerned.

This restaurant offers authentic Indian flavours. They go the extra mile to create something which will suit the taste buds! We requested for ours to be made extra spicy and boy we were delighted to taste great flavours n spice!
Another great bonus is the excellent service by the host, Sri. He made us felt comfortable and great service skills.
Definitely worth having a meal here!

Great food and awesome flavours. Limited menu available at Lunchtime but the price and quality is great. Definately worth a visit if you are looking for good service and tasty food. They have a DVD recording of their region of india that is on a loop so you get a feel for the place that your food is coming from. However it is only about 20 mins long so it gets a bit repetitive.

Went with a bunch of friends first time. The menu is not hugely extensive, but the selection is still very good. The food is not hot, but is very flavor some with spices. The slow cooked duck and pork were excellent and everyone enjoyed the Dosa starter. Will definitely be frequenting here again!

Great to see another good Indian restaurant in New Plymouth. Service fantastic and offers South Indian cuisine as an alternative to what on offer from other Indian restaurants in NP.
