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.

So many Indian restaurants serve middle to northern food. Here it is not the case. The cuisine comes from the south west side of India. Strong flavours of pepper, and coconut dance around your mouth offering a unique view into a different part of India....The food was spicy and fresh and we were well pleased with our choice of meals and restaurant.More

It’s good to visit here when its dark, which isn’t in any way a reflection on the excellent food, warm service and reasonable prices, but more about the location as this restaurant is situation under the grotesque brutalist concrete monstrosity that are the council offices....Despite its setting, we sampled the banquet menu and thoroughly enjoyed our evening.More

Cool south Indian restaurant in the square - great service and tasty food. Loved the cauliflower entree and Dosa was a good solid choice. If you want a good meal go here!

Pricy with small portions. I really wanted a curry this evening but unfortunately found that most of the indian restaurants were closed due to staff storage. I am fussy about my Indian food so I was disappointed with this restaurant but in fairness my friend...liked it. I would definitely not recommend or go back.More

Made an order of lamb biriyani delivered, portion size for $24 was ridiculous. The small size container had more rice than lamb and spices. I was lucky to get 6 pieces of lamb. So bloody disappointed. Buy McDonalds, you'll get more for your money.

The food here was great. As a newcomer to Palmerston North, this is the only place I have enjoyed so far and would go back again. Good service, decent serving sizes, a bit of a twist on your standard butter chicken as it offers a...great selection with something for everything. I highly recommend this place!More
