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.

Great experience! My daughter goes to school in Winston-Salem and has tried all the Indian spots..she said this is by far the best! I loved it too. Large portions and vegetarian options. Started with Aloo Samosa - very good with a nice kick. I had...the Lobster Shorba- so good and the sauce was amazing. She had the Vegetable & Paneer Biryani - she loved it and had enough left over for two more meals! My only negative was that there was no Indian dessert option...only basic. Great stop! Staff and owner very niceMore

Can’t rate this restaurant highly enough! My partner and I came here for my celebratory birthday meal and we were very impressed overall. Great service, attentive staff and the food was delicious! We were made to feel very welcome. I had the butter prawn curry...and it was one of the best curries I have ever had! If you are in Auckland, please do take a visit here, you won’t regret it. I would give more than 5 stars if I could.More

Family decided to try this place and it is a nice, clean, pleasant restaurant. Light background music, friendly service and really nice food. Ice water on request at no extra charge. Fresh, crispy papadams on the house, also really top notch. We tried several different...dishes and all of them were really top quality, fresh spices and quality ingredients. The Billy goat curry was very good, lots of spices. Very good quality rice. The roti was definitely fresh and good but I felt I had better roti elsewhere.More

Kudos to the fantastic stuff. My partner and I came for the first time and amazing lady manage to find us table withouth booking. Stuff was very attentive, it was first class service. We started with Murgh Chicken Tikka which was amazing. Perfect blend of...spices and chicken was so soft and marinated amazing. Main course we had Original Butter Chicken and Malai Kofta. I had chance to visit from India, UK and NZ most of the indian restaurants and try famous Butter Chicken. Unfortunately, this was one of the worst I have ever tried. As in one of the comments the owner said “ its Indian restaurant so we should expect variety of spices”- this was nothing but sugar. Gravy so thin as water and taste I can still feel sugar. It is not India, not even close. Malai Kofta- gravy looked amazing, but it was as well sweet that even salt didn’t helped. Enviroment is amazing. Everything looks excluzive, but food I have tried made me never come back. Garlic naan was very good. And beer as well. We run as fast as we could, that we couldn’t even leave any comment. We were speechless.More

Best Indian food EVER! I had the butter chicken and wanted to go back for more during our 3 day trip. Our food was timely. In addition to being delicious. The entire staff (who appeared to be mostly family) all work happily together serve guests....Our waitress (who is one of the owners daughters) had such a beautiful personality that I asked to have a picture taken with her. The entire experience was delightful!More

It's probably better that you Google the restaurant and look at the menu and prices for yourself. I'm afraid I can't remembered exactly what we paid as I wasn't the person who paid the bill.
