Lovely meal again. Butter chicken, steamed rice, cheese and garlic naan bread and a vodka, lime and lemonade - $25. Who could complain. Food was lovely. Service great as always.

I have been to many Indian restaurants around New Zealand and their chicken tikka entree (you will not be disappointed) and their butter chicken is the best I have had. I have gone back there repeatedly and the food and service is consistently great. My personal favourite is the lamb sagwala.

On a visit home to Palmerston North, my family really enjoyed the flavourful food, extensive menu and delightfully attentive wait staff. One of the best and authentic Indian meals we have had. I am happy to recommend it for fellow travellers and locals.

I have been in Palmerston North for over a month for work and this little gem is a must for both locals and visitors! My colleague and I keep coming back each week to the same beautiful Indian food and amazing service with a smile. I will miss this place when I return home tomorrow but hope to be back... More

We were a group of 4 and all were satisfied- enough vegan and vegetarian options to choose from , plus other meat variations which kept everyone else happy. Staff were friendly and attentive. Portions were freshly prepared and hearty with great flavours. prices very reasonable.

This place is a bit of a hidden gem. Went a couple of times then tried other places and came back to here. Staff are friendly and helpful. Quick service. Food is very good. They accommodate large groups and it is byo. Best option for an Indian meal in palmy in my opinion.
