Busy place but the service was good and food was delicious. We sat outside which was plesant. Seemed to be quite a lot of people coming for takeaways as well.

We had a nice lunch in this place, the dish of the day was really good for a correct price and the cheese garlic naan are just awesome. The service was really professional, simply a good place .

Great food, service and atmosphere !! A favourite choice for a meal out/takeaway in our house. Often busy but they will always let you know accurate wait times.

Reasonably fast service for a long weekend, very resonably priced! Only complaint was that their level of spicing is very weak!

Very tasty Ruby in a most unexpected location. Very reminiscent of the better UK high street curry houses that pride themselves on fresh food. Hard-working chefs & front-of-house staff serve up really tasty curries, & thankfully not a massive menu, but plenty of variety. Portions...More

We did go very early so we had no trouble getting a table. Menu was basic Indian fare but that was as far as it went. Admittedly, it was the best Indian food we have had in New Zealand (but there is little competition in...More
