Excellent service! Great flavor. Baltic Chicken is delicious! Kunal got the chef to make us dairy free and gluten free curry from scratch.. very accommodating. They even brought me an ice pack because I hurt my foot earlier on in the day! Must go.

Excellent service, despite hosting a massive group for a birthday celebration they accommodated our family of 4. They were upfront about the wait for food but we were still well treated. The food is consistent and would highly recommend to others visiting Rotorua.

Good service with friendly staff. The curry was as good as any I have experienced in Ausrtalia and NZ. Great curries, more rice than we could eat and hot buttery naan straight from tandoor.
