Many wonderful dishes to choose from. Eclipsed other Indian restaurants in town due to their comfortable seating, lovely and gracious hostess, excellent service, fabulous food and sauces. Loved our dinner, I will be back to my new favorite restaurant in Taupo!

Had some flavourful and delicious food for dinner on our second day in Taupo. The portions are pretty large and the food came out pretty fast. Loved the garlic naan and butter chicken the most.
