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.

Starter delivered eventually was tasty, we were starving after a long wait and needling to go to counter to order. Main courses awful - a load of chillli powder thrown into NZ frozen supermarket veggies in one dish and tinned chickpeas the other. Tiny bits of meat added. Service so slow we were starving, groups got priority. Sorry to give a negative review, to be fair if you aren’t familiar with authentic Indian food and it’s complexity you might like this. Give a miss if you’ve experienced really tasty Indian food however.

Great service on a very busy Thursday night. All the dishes were perfectly seasoned and delicious! All curries were tempered the way we cook at home. Well done to the staff for such a great experience

Terrible. Read other recent reviews about delays. Exactly what we experienced. Waited 2 hours and no apology or offer to make up for it. Food when it arrived was cold and order provided was incomplete. Never again .

Our favorite local restaurant. Always good, the new owners have elevated a good local restaurant to a great one. The obvious attention to detail from the table settings to the crockery and the quality of the dishes shows their hearts are in their work. Excellent garlic naan tops it off. I hope they continue as we would miss it. Off there again tonight.

Disappointed that our booking had been “lost” in the system despite confirmation text and email. Anyhow got seated eventually 15 min later but pretty much ignored, had to fetch own jug of water while we waited for service. Server was just an order taker, no charisma or hospitality unfortunately. Drinks came out promptly after ordering but food took an hour to arrive which is bearable if starters could have come out earlier. Samosas were a huge lump of dough filled with chunky veg and fried in a batter rather than the correct pastry and shape, not nice at all. Onion bajis were oversized and uncooked in the middle. Poppadoms were tiny, like they were not heated to puff and form. Very dissatisfied as these are basic Indian staples which should have been cooked well. The mains were good, lamb was tender and gravies were flavoured well. Very popular take out venue with take out orders getting priority and endless stream of delivery drivers collecting from main restaurant which is disruptive to the dining experience.

Wait time was up to an hour. Waited almost 2. So many unhappy customers in the same position. Don’t take orders if you can’t meet them.

We went just after the posted opening time but they were shut, but… they were actually open but the sign in the door said closed and as the restaurant is down stairs we could not look in, however, we called them soon after and booked a table. There was only one couple eating in the restaurant when we arrived so didn’t think we had made the right choice. We were shown to a table of our choice by a very lovely girl called Emily. We had a lovely bottle of Red wine and chose some lovey Lamb dishes which were really good ( I have not put which dishes as it’s down to personal choice ) The phone never stopped ringing for take away orders so that says everything We really recommend you have meal here and ask for Emily to serve you :) Gra and Sandy from Devon , U.K

I visited this place with my friends and we all liked the vibe of the place. We ordered paneer tikka and samosa chat for the starters and for mains we ordered daal makhni, shahi paneer with butter naan. Food was served within expected time. The taste was really good and staff was friendly. Paneer tikka is a must have and highly recommended and daal makhni is one of my favourites too. This place is value for money and provides good environment for family and friends. Thanks chef, will visit again soon.

See my review Sept. 2021. Love the food but….. the wait! 6.45 booking. Arrived 6.40. Appetisers at 7.10. Mains at 8.05. I do like this restaurant but the take outs seem to leave the diners standing? (Sitting). While I accept they need to make a living and takeouts are an integral part of their business I guess I’ll limit my visits to mid week when it’s quieter. I suspect they’re understaffed- not an unusual situation currently.

Ordered online for pick up and was told it would be an hour wait. After arriving an hour later and waiting another half an hour, we were informed they had forgotten the order and it would be another 15 minutes. Then waited another hour. Understand a busy night and these things happen but staff were incredibly unapologetic and rude. No communication other than continuously being told it would be 5 minutes.

This is my personal favourite Indian restaurant in Wellington and I have been to many different Indian restaurants. Their dishes always have a delicious sauce. They also do good sizzling hot plate dishes. Their Paneer has the best spices. Also the price is good too. Highly recommend.
