Probably the best Indian food we have had in NZ. Great flavour, spices and excellent value. Highly recommended and would go again.

There were mixed reviews of this restaurant but we decided to try as we were not that impressed by the others nearby. Service was quick and friendly so no complaints there. However, I thought the food was rather average, tasted ok but it was just meat in a thin sauce, there didn't seem to be the other vegetables with it,... More

My partner and I both had the set menu. The starter was great but be careful not too eat too much because I wish I had left more room for the main as it was delicious. I had the madras and my partner the butter chicken which he is still raving about! The Mango dessert was also great. Staff were... More

Visited this lovely restaurant in centre of Westport and had a superb meal. Staff very nice and helpful and ambience very pleasant, not overpowering and dominating Indian artefacts as in other Indian restaurants . Permits bring your own wine for a nominal small corkage charge. Overall a very pleasant dining experience and reasonably priced. We will repeat it again soon... More

This is a really nice restaurant and very clean. It offers Indian and Thai food and a children's menu. The service was good and the staff very friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and it was good value for money.

Amazing tasty and inexpensive! We were surprised to find this place in a town in the middle of nowhere. To be honest it's one of the most redeeming features of this town. We had the chicken tikka, chicken korma and sides - fab! Yum yum. They even had western meals for children with less expansive palettes (like ours). As Molly... More

As it was a public holiday and another choice was booked out we decided on the Copper Pot , not much choice in Westport. To our surprise the food was tasty, and all that we wanted.

My family and I are visiting Westport as part of our South Island trip and after a big day of tramping and driving we were quite keen when we saw this Indian restaurant! Quite disappointing... Lamb korma was very liquid with not much meat. Chicken Tikka Masala was very hot but not tasty. The garlic naan was pretty wet... I... More

Madras lamb curry was fantastic. Generous serving of rice, and garlic naan completed a really exceptional meal.
