I was staying in Ashburton for two days. Found this restaurant on trip advisor. I ordered one chicken korma and some onion bhajees. The chicken was chewy and gravy too sweet. Onion bhajees were very oily and burnt. The whole night I had light stomach pain. Won't be eating Indian for a while now. The service staff seemed friendly but... More

Great service! Despite us keep changing orders, the waitress (im not sure whats her name but she is Nepalese) did not get annoyed or anything and gladly took our orders. Great food here as well, i would recommend their lamb kebabs and curries (butter chicken and mango). If you're dropping by Ashburton, please do drop by here :))

Ordered by phone but had to pick up due to not meeting minimum $30 order for delivery. Meal was ready when they said it would be. Very nice mango chicken.

Being hungry and looking for a good bite we came across this place. We ordered a seafood curry, lamb spinach curry and vegetarian paneer tika masala. Food was brought promptly, friendly service, naans were delicious. The curries were ok, unfortunately I must say they did not wow me as this was pretty much average and mine seemed to be lacking...

Beautiful and I mean BEAUTIFUL food. Reasonably priced. Highly recommend the vegetarian cheese dishes (and I'm not even a vegetarian). The chicken korma is also excellent.

Have been wanting to try this place for ages, and so glad I finally did. I had the Paneer Tikka Masala which was delicious, and a generous size portion too! Will definitely be returning.
