We enjoyed a meal here as a family of five. Unbelievably nice flavours. Generous portion sizes and friendly wait staff.

Reasonable, you get what you pay for. Most dishes whether be vegetarian or otherwise had the same base, like most Indian restaurants. That said, the service was good.

We had main course and dessert (rogan josh and the mango khulfi icecream) - both delicious, as was the roti bread. Rice cooked the best ever. Very good staff, and from where we were sitting, we could see into the kitchen. It was spotless.

Maybe this is a Kiwi Indian experience but the meals ordered bore no resemblance to their names. Dhansak without lentils? Bhuna with no vegetable sauce, just a powerful taste of uncooked garam masala? Disappointing.
