Nice Indian food and good service. Wish the onion kulcha was actually a kulcha but instead it was Naan with onion sprinkled on it. But it was tasty and filling. Would recommend making reservation because it gets filled up pretty quickly.

Solo business trip on a miserable grey evening. Service here is very friendly, good selection of vegetarian dishes. Coconut rice especially good. I'll be back again.

Indian food is a very good choice after a lot of tasteless food in NZ, and here it is really good, nothing was overcooked, the open wines they offered by glass are even good. Fast and friendly service.

We barely ate out when I was a child. The possibilities weren’t great and my father didn’t, as he put it, like his food mucked around with. Curries were the one rare exception. I continue the tradition. Once or twice a month, and for some...More
