What an enjoyable meal, thanks! And so quickly served after our order was taken - did you know what we were about to order?! Succulent and tasty. Great naan bread. And an Entertainment Book discount! Perfect!

We live in Kaikoura and rate this restaurant exceptionally high. Staff always go out of their way to be welcoming. Extensive menu and personally love their Samosas, Prawn Curry and Butter Chicken. Family and friends always rate this restaurant very highly.

We are from Christchurch and stay at Kaikoura often, we always eat at the Indian restaurant. The food is absolutely beautiful I especially haven’t had a better rogan josh anywhere and I’ve eaten in a lot of Indian restaurants. The samosas are real yummy, well...it’s all yummy . Excellent service and they remember us when we go back it’s lovely.More

Sadly, the food was like mush and full of oil and very tasteless. The service was impeccable. I would not recommend or try again.
