The restaurant is in a warm friendly space (old house). The staff are friendly. The servings are tasty and large. Perfect venue for a pleasant Indian meal. Have been here a few times over the years and never disappoints. Good value too.

It seems everyone in Nelson recommends this Indian restaurant. Having eaten there I can see why. Superb food, staff great, host lovely. The potato naan bread was a revelation, and the tandoori mixed grill was delicious and huge. Good value too.
