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.

Thought I'd try a change from my usual Indian shop but will stick with my regular. Sauce a bit watery & chicken bits too big.

On 8th February 2023, your Indian male waiter with black frame glasses, and black turban spoke rudely too me. On that day, it was my birthday, what he behaved left me a very bad impression and unpleasant experiment. I hope this won’t happen again.

So fresh, tasty, hot and truly authentic. AND they deliver, it was still very hot and the service fantastic. From ordering online (website a little clunky) to the door service was perfect.

Recent visit and a lovely experience. We found the staff friendly and helpful. Service was good and the food excellent. I don’t believe we waited a very long time before the meal arrived, it was reasonably busy at the time. Would recommend this place.

Very slow service and food quality has degraded compared to what it used to be. The Maori waitress had a very sour face, I wonder shy she is in the hospitality industry. Not friendly at all.

9 of us went to celebrate a birthday. We arrived at 5.30, no one else in the restaurant. Ordered about 10 minutes after arriving. Over an hour later the first course of the banquet came out, by this time the two children that were with...us were getting extremely grumpy because they were hungry. We had ordered chicken nuggets and chips for them, a very easy quick cook I would of thought. When the meals did eventually come out they were very tasty although some of the dishes were lukewarm. Service was way too slow, just over two hours and when we left there were only two other patrons in the restaurant,More

Delivery was free and arrived at time specified at time of order. Love the flavors of Punjab! Offer different heat levels from mild to Indian hot. Garlic naanas and vegetable pakoras are my fave sides and always consistent flavors.

$10 lunch is excellent for the price. Service is very good. Good atmosphere and friendly staff. A good place to stop for a quick lunch in an Indian style setting. Clean and tidy and toilets available if needed.
