I had the lamb stew as a takeaway, it was pretty average, the lamb was quite tender, but the sauce seemed heavy but it didn’t have a lot of flavour.

Wonderful meal that was enjoyed by everyone in the three generations of our family group. Lovely fresh flavours, aromatic and super tasty. The service was friendly and efficient - clearly very proud of the food they were serving. We would definitely go again.

Excellent Indian cooking. That's a bit different than what I'm used as Indian restaurant, The Kerala region have some special recipe which are very tasteful. We've selected medium spicy and it was perfect, not burning and very tasty.

Went here at the suggestion of my daughter who had been studying in Palmy. Excellent service and food. Probably the meal we enjoyed most over our two weeks in NZ.
