Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Very average food, usually takes longer than time given. Portion sizes are good. The dishes advertising vegetables are just frozen vegetables.

We chose a selection of curries from here and they were all delicious. The service was fantastic and we appreciated the heads up on how long our meal would be given they were so busy over the Easter weekend. Good value for money also.

We ordered takeaway from here while on holiday from Auckland and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of food. We ordered a saag paneer and lamb rogan josh and both were excellent.

as web site says they open at 4.30pm on Sunday but notice in window it would be 4.40 today. Fine but you would expect them to be on the time for 4.40 but they had still not arrived by 4.50. Soon turned up however as...I was about to take my business elsewhere. Trivial I know but lacks ownership of the business. Glad I waited as my vegetarian mushrooms and peas was very good with the exception that I asked for proper Indian hot, not so called Kiwi hot so it's a 3 for tardy time keeping and not as hot as expected and requested. Very pleasant counter team.More

We were a little nervous do to the poor reviews on trip advisor, but our experience was great! We had the butter chicken and naan bread (plain and garlic). We waited about 10 minutes for our food, while the kids played at the playground. The...naan bread was great (we loved the garlic), and the butter chicken had a great sweet and spicy flavour. We would certainly order there again.More
