We eat only vegetarian and found this to be one of the best Indian meals we had in New Zealand. The spices were discernible, food well presented, fresh, flavoursome and the portions sensible unlike the excessive helpings we were given in other Indian restaurants in New Zealand. Service was faultless. If we were in Wellington again we would go back.

This restaurant was very convenient for our hotel, so we thought we'd give it a try. We were not disappointed. The service was friendly and efficient, and the food was very nice.

We order biriyani here it was terrible as chef just mixed butter chicken pieces with some spices and served it with rice.
Do not eat birayni over here as it totally not worth spending $18.
Waiter was bit rude seemed not happy there..
Little India is better alternative.

great india or little india are better alternatives.

Visited during a lunch break. Despite it being literally empty, the staff were warm, helpful and very friendly. The food came out fresh and absolutely delicious and full of flavour. Love eating here and have visited twice since!
