Our favourite Indian restaurant in Invercargill. Service is fast and friendly, the food is excellent and the menu tells me exactly what is (most of it), and what, isn't gluten-free - very important as I am coeliac. We love coming here and will be back soon!

I've been to this restaurant often over the last 4 years and have never been disappointed. Amazing service and the food is of a high standard. An added bonus is there take away of the full menu for the times that I'm in a hurry or late after work. Have tried other local Indian food but no were as good.

We went in for lunch today after reading the good reviews. Big disappointment, website says butter chicken lunch combo for $15 with rice and naan, but the manager said there was no lunch menu and we had to order from the dinner menu for $19.50 please plus extra for naan! Needless to say, we left immediately. Definitely won't be back.
