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.

There were 11 people in our group comprising 4 adults and 7 children of various ages. From the outset, we were warmly welcomed by our host, Som. The food selection was excellent and without question, we were served the best Indian food in our 50...years in New Zealand. The environment was well-considered, the seating comfortable, and the table setting good quality. When next in Invercargill this restaurant will be top of our list. PS: the restaurant does not use sugar, additives or colorants.More

This is a slightly harsh review as the food is good…But I ordered a pickup takeaway.. ordered 4 sets of Pompadoms only got one, didn’t notice till I got home and another 40 mins after that. Make sure you’ve got the food you’ve ordered with...this place CHECK YOUR ORDER. Good food but have to rate it a 2 for service.More

We always come here and this was another night where we were blown away with the brilliant ambience, service and delicious food! The owner always comes over to ask if we are enjoying our meal and knows which wine we drink which is a real...treat and we absolutely love. Also they cater for our dairy requirements which is why we come. If you enjoy a nice quiet, stylish place to indulge in some quality Indian food you must try this place!More
