Paratha had a lot of flavor in it. Butter chicken had spice to it. Different from most other Indian restuarants that come across as sugary and bland. The Indian family that I ate here with approved. Alcohol well priced. The downsides were the interior was...cold and food took a long time to come (but flavor made up for the wait). Interior could do with pot plants - lots of negative space and menus were dirty/oily - could do with reprinting. Food good for takeaway. Interior good for a student party /byo vibeMore

This is fantastic food, cooked from fresh ingredients, by a world class chef! I am a fussy eater that loves food made from fresh ingredients. This restaurant caters to the diverse dietary needs of my extended family, and are always gracious and eager to please....A lovely family run business with a passion for quality and cuisine. Cannot thank you enough.More

Indian curry was so disgusting we couldn't eat it. Could have made much better one at home. Butter chicken had chunks of canned tomato in it, and was so spicy it burnt my throat.

Disgusting food, ordered off the Indian menu and it looked and tasted like dog food that’s been thrown up. Will never go to this place again. Do not recommend

Service was excellent, food was 10/10. We had the onion bhaji, butter chicken, rogan josh and garlic naan. All of the food was top notch. We couldn't fault any of the food it was as good as any indian we have had previously. Great value,...very cheap for what we had.More

The setting in here is nice and we all ordered off the Indian menu. Our entrees were OK but all of our mains looked like dog food thrown up again. None of the dishes looked like the same ones we've had many times before in...other places, the flavour weren't familiar and all our meals looked as if they were minced. Four out of 8 of us were ill for the following day. I would never ever go back and feel cheesed off that I paid for this awful mealMore

Enormous space for friends and family dine in. Located in the heart of the Hamilton, New Zealand. Foods taste just as same as I expected. Value for the food is worthy. Stuffs are very congenial. Definately will visit if I go to Hamilton again.
