We were staying close to Havelock North for four nights. On our first night we were so fortunate to come across 'Namaskar'. We had the most delicious curry served up by the most polite staff. We enjoyed our meal so much that we had to go a second time and had different curries this time. We were not disappointed, again... More

Our first visit here, on a Saturday night after the movies... the restaurant was busy, so we went for the takeaways. Friendly staff, great value for money. The Panek Paneer was delicious. They said half hour wait as it was so busy, so we popped across the road for a drink. Highly recommend, can't wait to eat in there.

Came across this restaurant whilst looking for a place to grab dinner on a Monday night. Was pleased to find that the restaurant was cozy with great food for a great price. Portions were huge and the staff was great!

One of the reasons for visiting Napier again was to make the trip to Havelock for dinner again, having had dinner there the year before. Was surprised Kurian, the manager, remembered us from that trip! The menu had changed slightly making it more difficult to choose even though there were five of us - we'd need to have dinner there...

I went to this relatively new addition to the Havelock North restaurant scene with my 18 yo son. The food was very good but the service, while friendly, was slow. It took quite some time for our meals to be served and I suspect that this was to do with the popular - judging by the number of people in... More
