The place inside is bit tiny and clustered. Tried the biryani which was okay. Staff promoted their wine which we didn't try, maybe next time. All in all not bad food, but portion size should be generous for the amount of money cutomers are paying.

Finally Whangarei has a good Indian restaurant with excellent food and a lovely setting. Something that has been greatly lacking in Whangarie. Staff are very friendly and the service is excellent.
