Our first visit to the Himalayas and we got takeaways. The service was warm and friendly and the food was delicious. We are locals and very much looking forward to going back. Well done, keep up the great food.

The food was excellent with a depth of flavour that we haven't tasted in other restaurants. The service was great. We would certainly come back next time we're in Christchurch.

Our hotel recommended this restaurant and it was delicious! It is a small quiet place with wonderful Indian food. We shared two vegetarian appetites. Both were wonderful. Our mains....curries were so good! It was an inexpensive meal and we really enjoyed it!

Had a very enjoyable meal here on a public holiday. Ive been gluten free for 7 years and was very excited to be able to order a gluten free nan which was made from chick pea flour.

Absolutely delicious and very quick service, we couldn't be happier with everything. Any of their curry dishes with fresh Naan and rice make for a perfect dinner.

When I walked into this restaurant at dinner time, it was completely deserted, which had me a bit worried. However, I was pleasantly surprised at the expansive menu and wine list, and the dishes were not bad. I've had better Indian food, though. Can recommend the Peshwari Naan.

When travelling it's funny how often the need for a curry crops up in conversation. The question is where to go? Well for those Brits who find themselves looking for a curry in Christchurch try here. Located close to the CBD it's easy to spot with its reddish paintwork. The dishes are all familiar although you can request mild medium... More
