Authentic Indian food - curry is fantastic - complete with terrific service and well priced relative to NZ. Not overly spicy and adjusted to your taste. A nice dining experiences - definitely recommended.

This was recommended to us by a woman in a shop who told us the other two Indian restaurants were good but this one was excellent. Boy was she right. They sit atop a bakery and have a great view of the mountains. It was also fun to watch the tourist traffic in town.
My husband had the Chicken Korma and I had the chicken special (sorry the name of it escapes me) it was made with pounded cashew nuts and served on a sizzling platter. We had the naan bread with onion and a mango lassi.
The service and the food were fantastic!

Had more than our fair share of curries in Brick Lane and the Balti Triangle in the UK. This ranks right up there with the best. We've struggled to find a curry in NZ that wasn't just sauce and a few bits of meat. The bhuna gosht was packed with fresh spices, and a good consistency - highly recommended. Medium spice was genuine medium and packed a bit of heat. Really friendly service too. We can't understand why this place wasn't packed given how many Brits we came across in Q-town.

A lovely restaurant. The staff are very attentive the meal and service was excellent We had the Chicken Madras and Chicken korma all very very tasteful. Along with the main meal we had the Kema Nann bread made with Pistachio simply perfick :-) best we have ever had. We were given a taste of the new special. All in all a great find in a resort full of excellent restaurants I would highly recommend this as a must visit.
