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.

Worst meal we have had in NZ! When ordering we were asked how spicy we woud like our dishes. My husband asked for his Biryani to be mild. The lady on te next table had to send back her korma because it was also so...spicy she couldnt eat it after ordering 'mild' The plates arrived stone cold. The biryani was so spicy he could not eat it and the small amount he managed to eat only stayed with him a short time. My curry tasted like it could have just come out of a jar. Rice was served in a glass pudding basin, the table sticky was and nasty. Avoid this restaurant at all costsMore

Some of the best Indian food we have had in NZ. We had the mixed starter plate, Kadai chicken, Jalfarezi lamb, garlic naan, and 2 Kingfisher Strongs. The food was fresh, well spiced, and excellently prepared. Portions were plentiful. Service was a touch slow but...we also showed up before the dinner hour. 2 thumbs up. Definitely recommend. Also appreciated the sass ones of the menu!More

Not impressed. I had visited a few times with family when they first opened so I assumed they would be good, but I was disappointed. I had an onion and garlic allergy and I am vegetarian so they marked 3 vegetarian curries I could have...out of the whole menu. So we didn't have many options... We ordered dal tadka, butter paneer and cheesy nan. We weren't impressed with the prices for the portions and the waiter kept staring at me (teenager girl) uncomfortably and it annoyed my partner. The wait didn't seem too long, probably because we are good at killing time together and they let us drink our own fizzy at the table. The food tasted okay, the cheesy nan wasn't as cheesy as we'd like. I enjoyed the butter paneer which surprised me. But a little while after I ate I was super ill (intense stomach cramps) which lasted for 4+ days and kept me from sleeping and made it difficult to eat regularly. Being that sick was horrible and it's enough to prevent me from ever eating there again and to give a big fat REALLY NOT RECOMMEND.More

If you want a fire in your mouth this is your place. Mild anything is hot everything. Disappointing is an understatement. The kitchen was woke and wouldn’t listen to anyone who wanted to make a suggestion. Between the spoons of chilli paste by the waiter...and doughy naan this place is not a place to enjoy. The poor waiter was under the pump and looked to be embarrassed with what was coming out. Legend he was. Do not recommendMore

Ordered a Chicken Biryani, Palak Paneer Makhni & Naan as takeaway. The food was tasty, well spiced & of generous quantity. The food was ready on time & the prices reasonable. The only negative was the Palak Paneer Makhni could have done with a wee...bit more paneer it it. Plenty of Palak Makhni not so much Paneer. Overall a very tasty takeaway meal, and I'd order from them again.More
