Best Indian I have tasted so far in NZ. Friendly helpful staff and very reasonably priced. We chose 4 dishes to share and as two had almost the exact spices /flavors our waiter suggested we change one and we lived all four.

We drove up from Wellington and arrived late. The kitchen accommodated my GF husband and the meals were very flavourful. It’s run by SMART INDIANS and you’d be a SMART customers if you eat there. Delicious!

This place is a must to try, have to say one of the best Mushroom Masala we have ever had, highly recommended!! Not to mention the garlic nan to die for. Excellent service, thanks for a great Indian food experience. Top marks.

Went while I visited Mt Manganui recently. Delicious curries, great service and a good price. Lots of people coming in for takeaways so clearly a local favourite!
