The service lets this place down as you can wait a while but it is worth it in the end. The food is lovely. Yum!

I took visitors from the UK here on a Tuesday night. They had the banquet. The food was excellent and, of course, the ambience in this traditional New Zealand villa is always wonderful. I will still have to check the service delivery times at the weekend with this ever popular restaurant.

Our family and friends had a superb dinner at this inviting restaurant. So many Indian restaurants have crabby service but not this lovely place. Wonderful food.

The long wait for food was partially our fault as we wandered in off the street on new years eve without a booking. We were pleasantly surprised we got seated.

Unfortunately the seat was outside and we were assured that when a table was available we could move inside. We placed our orders. We managed to move to the bar inside soon after as one of the other guests started smoking. We were constantly assured that we would have a table soon.

We weren't in a great rush as it was new years eve, but it did become very frustrating when we saw people who had arrived well after us, who also had no bookongs, getting shown to tables while we were left sitting at the bar.

When we did get shown to a table 90 minutes later we still ended up waiting another half hour for food. When the food arrived it was nice, but definitely not worth the wait

It was on Valentines Day and we were warned about the wait, but when it came the food was very good. All went well until paying the bill- with electronic waitressing a main course had been recorded twice, although we clearly only received it once. It took a little while to convince the cashier that we only had two main courses , not three, for teh two of us. Otherwise very good quality food.
