“Excellent Indian Food”
Reviewed 18 April 2017 via mobile

We weren't expecting such excellent Indian food in a side street in Neilson!! The chicken korma was rich and creamy, the lamb tandoori chops very flavoursome. Good value for money as well.

“Some of the best Indian food we have had for a while and with service to match”
Reviewed 12 April 2017

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.

“Everything was delicious!”
Reviewed 12 April 2017

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.

“Lovely ”
Reviewed 12 April 2017 via mobile

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.

“Vindaloo and Naan to travel for”
Reviewed 11 April 2017 via mobile

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!
