“Best Indian.. terrific food......”
Reviewed November 9, 2013

Found this restaurant in an old bank in 'The Cresent' . It has been wonderfully renovated, all in a fabulous setting. Staff are always polite, the service fabulous and staff immaculately dressed... First meal here was a wonderful adventure and after ordering a medium butter chicken from the great menu, we found it too hot for our conservative taste buds. The Manager insisted on supplying a mild version at no charge.... he wanted our dining experience to be a good one and he wouldnt take no for an answer. How many places would do that ? The food is wonderful, fresh, well prepared and flavoursome. Even had a world travelled friend from Europe here recently, said that this place served one of the best curries he has ever had........in the world..... even India ..........we will certainly be back.....

“Terrific Dinner in a Very Beautiful Room”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

We were greeted by charming and helpful staff that took care of us the entire evening. Since I was introduced to Indian cuisine last year in India, I am not an expert. However, our partners are and they stated that the food was great. We all loved it. The entire evening was relaxing and entertaining because everything went so smoothly. This is WHAT "going out" should be about - fun, good spirits and great food. Try this place !!!

“A credit to the brand”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

A well recognized brand in NZ, delivering a range of different dining experiences. This one delivered very well indeed. Quality service from the moment we escaped the bite of an Invercargill wind. Attractive, open space, well set out. Bright and cheerful - just like the staff. Menues are easy to read and very professional - not often found in many restaurants. And the food matched the promise. Staff took some time to ensure we understood what "hot" meant. The dishes were beautifully presented and were generous sizes. One of the better Indian meals I have had. Thank you for the experience.

“Warm and welcoming.”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

Indian would not be my first choice for a meal but there were over 20 of us and the only place that would accommodate us at short notice. Butter chicken is always reliable for those of us with a sensitive palate and was not disappointing...the feedback from the other diners was very complimentary with the Lamb Saagwala proving very tasty and popular....I think I will have to be more adventurous next time. The garlic naan was yum and the beautiful dishes were passed up and down the table. I thought the mains seemed to be a bit dear but the portion sizes were larger than I have accounted in other restaurants with plenty of substance to them rather than a few pieces of meat floating in sauce.
Service was fabulous since there were so many of us of all ages.
