We chose to visit this restaurant on a Friday night without a booking. The staff found us a good table. The food was excellent. The samosa were enjoyable and so were the two dishes we selected. The restaurant has a Trip Advisors Certificate of Excellence and it is easy to see why.

We loved everything about our lunch here. The atmosphere out on the patio was great, and we're still talking about the food. There were 6 of us, so we ordered a bunch of things and shared. The onion bhajias, garlic naan, butter chicken were especially delicious. The owner also gave us a great tip to head up to the Centre of NZ located right there in Nelson. This was a quick drive and hike to a an awesome viewpoint.

I've become a regular now. The food is always amazing and the wait it never to long. The staff are always friendly. And it is not over priced. The lunch menu is fantastic and so is the dinner meal.

What a great restaurant, attentive staff, absolutely wonderful vindaloo, samosa and saag lamb, but the naan and tandoori roti were the best I have ever had.
This place is brilliant!

My wife and I love Indian food. We both felt that our meals here were among the best Indian food we'd had anywhere. In fact, it was one of the best meals we had in New Zealand. If you happen into Nelson and like spicy, do yourself a favor. It was a busy Saturday night and we had no reservation, but they found space. My only regret was that I overate. It was just too good.
