We were shown to a dirty table upstairs, the service was slow, eventually the plates arrived, only 2 for 3 of us!! they were warm on arrival but cold by the time the meals arrived. 2 of us had meat dishes it was tough, very tough. no cutlery we had to take it from another table not enough rice and no one to ask for more.
We left our food and to be fair were not charged for the 2 meat dishes. We wont be going back

Disappointing curry after an hours wait. We ordered online…told it would be ready in 30mins. We arrived on time and had to wait ANOTHER 30mins until the curry was ready. No apology, no extras to compensate. And the curry was mediocre at best with a soggy naan.

This restaurant is simply sublime. Delicious food... Friendly service.
Only drawback is the sparkling wine... Only lindauer... And the beers on tap are pretty basic. But the food... Wow!!

It was level 3 so it was we rang through our order and it was ready when we arrived. First time we used Turmeric and the food was great. It wasn't all sauce with a few bits of meat. There was a decent amount of meat in the dishes. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner.

We are so happy to have found this place! We have tried numerous Indian restaurants around the North Island & this is our favourite by far! Their food is jam packed with flavour, service us always friendly and efficient. Simply can't fault them (we drive a 1hr round trip weekly to eat here it's that good!). 😋
