We had a very nice takeout from here while travelling. It is related to the Kathakali restaurant in New Plymouth which is one of our favourites. Wide range of gluten free options.

Went with the family for a lunch, which included 2 toddlers. Waiters were friendly and helpful with the children. We had the lunch specials, a choice of meal with rice and kerala paratha for just $12 pp. Added in a shared entree and some drinks and it made a lovely lunch for all.

For me the food here was equal to the best South Indian food in NZ. Service was great and every dish from my visits two days in a row was amazing. An absolute must visit place. 10/10.

I came here with my sister after Lone Star turned us away. The waiter was lovely and quick to seat us. We ordered a biryani and mango lassi. The biryani was heavenly and the rice was so fluffy and spiced perfectly. It was a big portion that we shared and we walked away full. I will definitely go again.

The food here is from Southern India so the spices are superb! A special tough is the hot hand towels passed around - sooo thoughtful. Service is great too.

Indian food with a difference specialising in food from the Kerala area of Southern India. Very tasty and spiced to order. I enjoyed both starter and main course

This place is great if you enjoy Indian cuisine. The staff are friendly. A great range of food and drink. Ample room for large groups and also smaller tables for 2. The staff are helpful if you're unsure what to have.
