We had high expectations for this place after reading all the reviews, and was very disappointed. Food lacked flavors, small portion but the service was excellent. Not recommended if you are a big fan of authentic Indian food. I had the lamb curry at Cuba market the next day for a fraction of the price and it was better.

Our first visit and we'll return. We walk passed on our way to Newtown School market on Saturdays, decided it was time to try and we weren't disappointed. The wait staff were welcoming and service on point. We asked for recommendations - our fish curry, rogan josh, breads and raita were delicious. Good supporting drinks menu.

Ordered shahi paneer and malai kofta to share between a couple of friends. The curries were identical, only one had paneer and the other had koftas. Unfortunate for an indian restaurant to have an identical base curry between dishes. The menu had a lot of options including dosas but reluctant to revisit as of now.

I live nearby and come to this place a lot - either for takeaways or a quick sit down meal. The curries and dosa never fail to disappoint. Staff are helpful and the food is very cool but doesn't taste at all mass-produced. Best Indian in Wellington IMHO

Having only one night to spend in Wellington we wanted to pop into a small restaurant that allowed us to make the most of the night. Food was so full of flavours and the waiter was great at judging how hot we could handle the curries. I had the chicken tiki masala med-hot accompanied by a garlic naan. DELISH!! Would... More

Go here frequently for a great tasting lunch. Normally get a Dosa as it one of my favorite Indian dishes. The vegetarian version is good but the chicken one is yum! They do a good $10 lunch deal. Get a Naan, curry and rice. Good quality curries so far. Get the occasional Thali too for a change, good also but... More

I've eaten a lot of curries in Wgtn. This place rocks. Beautiful vegetarian food and I love meat! Great fresh distinct flavours. Definitely try the chicken tikka entrees and vege curries. Brilliant!
