4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2014

Came here for a Chicken Tikka Massala and was thoroughly impressed. Fantastic flavour and generous servings too. We will definitely go back.

“a great authentic meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2013

Visited with friends and pleased we booked in as the restaurant was full.
The service was good, the staff seemed busy but were responsive when needed.
We ordered mixed platter to start and there was sufficient food with a good assortment of entrees to try.
For mains we had tandoori chicken, butter chicken and butter prawns and curry with spinach. Rice was inclusive in the price. The food came in a choice of mild, medium or hot and was accurately prepared.
Portion sizes were great and price was very reasonable. The taste was delicious and we couldn't find fault. It is also byo with no charge.
Overall a great experience and the only downside was that the toilets are shared within the shopping centre. However the area is well lit.

“Best Indian food in the area!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

This restaurant took over from a failed Indian restaurant - & completely turned it around. The food is excellent, the environment is attractive & family friendly! Strongly recommended to all lovers of Indian food!

“This is by far the best Indian restraunt in the Palmerston North area.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013 via mobile

The kids and I called in here by chance on our way home. What a fantastic meal this turned out to be.
What was diffrent was the free chapati and dips whilst we were reading the menue. This brought back many fond memories of my stay in India. The food was on the table with no delays and delivered by frendly Indian waiters who were most helpfull through out the meal.
The food quality was top notch with a portion big enough to satisfy anyone.
I was very suprised at the price for such good quality and would recomend any staunch Indian curry lovers to go get some of this.
Be carfull theres two levels of very hot. Kiwi and Indian hot....
My 12 year old sons Buttered chicken was that good he wants to come back next week.
