Description: When you google us or check out our Facebook page you will discover we have a cult following, not because we are the coolest but because we consistently offer personal service of the highest standard and create mouth-watering, time-honoured family recipe dishes, made with passion and humble, honest flavours. This is not made-to-measure cooking. This is cooking from the heart. So much so, that our chefs instinctively know when a dish is just right; how it should feel, how it should taste, how it should look. Indeed an art and its entertainment, so we showcase this spice-dance for you with our glass kitchen. Our target was to offer authentic rustic Indian food from a unique part of India; this is not just food, these are memories of my childhood. Our outlook on life is simple, why waste time with bad food and bad company? We are locals, we love serving food lovers and we love to share our passion.

This place claims the best butter chicken and it does not disappoint! Flavours & spice were spot on. We had the butter chicken and tikka masala and cannot wait to go back.
Staff extremely attentive and went above and beyond to make our experience a delight, cannot fault.
Definitely check this place out!

We turned up without a reservation &, though the restaurant was already busy, luckily, the accommodating maitre d managed to find a table outside. The service was attentive & the dishes were superb. My wife enjoyed a delectable Kashmir chicken korma whilst I delighted in a delicious Goan Chicken Vindaloo (just the right degree of heat with a spicy aftertaste rather than the abrasive upfront burn so frequently experienced elsewhere ). Overall, an extremely enjoyable 'white tablecloth' meal in a stylish location & with friendly, professional service. Highly recommended!

Favorite and best indian restaurant in NZ by far. Our family of 8 had a fantastic meal and service. We were in Auckland to see the Wiggles and on the wall next to our table was a plate signed by the Wiggles that Tillie was thrilled with. Tillie had a cake also.
