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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

In town this week for work, hankering for a good curry. Went in, placed my order & paid, was told it'd be 10 minutes. Returned in that timespan after visiting another shop, person who took my order made eye contact with recognition, so I figured...it wouldn't be too much longer. 5mins went by & another customer came in & ordered. Another 10 mins go by and the customer who ordered AFTER me got his meal! I made eye contact with the staff member who promptly vanished. Rang bell, it was ignored. A couple mins later I finally got my meal. Will definitely go somewhere else for tomorrow night, awful, avoidant service, and after all that, the curry was watery, & flavourless!More

Got a meal this week and the naan were so burnt and black, we couldn’t eat them! We normally go there every week but sadly we won’t be returning!

I ordered a regular butter chicken. The chicken had burnt bits around the edges and was not hot. I also ordered a cheese narn which was burnt on the bottom. Most disappointed in the quality of this meal. I rang to inform them I was...disappointed with the meal, their comment was I'm sorry about that and then they would talk to the chef. The narn was inedible.More

We couldn't fault the meal, which was both generous in size and flavour. Lots of depth and the use of Indian herbs and spices, the best,authentic curries we have had in a long time. Sadly, they were not serving the dossas on the day we...visited, although on the menu it stated that they were available on the days we were there.More

Very disappointed with the flavours and medium is small. Don't ask for medium if you are hungry. Overpriced for what you get. Would not go there again.

We ate here years ago and thought that would be the last time as the sauces are runny so i think they are watering down the sauces. if you want good Indian food at a good price then go to Bombay Palace. We eat there...or take away or have home delivery every month.More

The curries here are VERY tasty and great value. Make sure you have the utensils and somewhere nearby to have your meal before it gets cold. The is a takeaway facility ONLY, you cannot dine in (photos listed on other review are NOT at this...venue), there are a couple of tables and benches to wait whilst your food is cooked. Best place to go, Oreti Beach, about 10 minutes drive away. Enjoy.More

travelling torwards dunedin from invercargill, I passed by many times and it somehow put me off by not seeming to have any guests visible from the outside. this time I stopped and had a most amazing lunch: butter chicken with a mild curry and basmati...rice: total price: nzd 15.- I was led to the restaurant part, my table was prepared: a caraffe with fresh cold water, serviette and cutlery. after 5 minutes an ample sized dish of butter chicken and rice arrived which I thoroughly enjoyed. unpretentios, but great taste and best value for money! I will come back soon!More

Went here today for a quick bite, we got dosa, a chicken and a masala dosa. It was my first time having dosa from a restaurant and it was pretty good! My friend thought it was quite oily and wasn't as crispy as a dosa...should be but for me it was really good. We also got mango lassi which tasted good but it was warm, would've thought it be cold.More
