This is a great, well priced, great tasting takeway. Highly recommend it. However, not such a great place to eat in. The prices are higher (which is normal), but the place is rather dated, and there is a continued steam of customers coming in for the fab "takeaways".

Best butter chicken I've had. The kids loved it too and the rice was super light and fluffy. They seemed very busy and we ordered by phone for our takeaways which took 30 minutes . Well worth the wait

This is a simple restaurant, always busy, good service, always great food. We would dine here at least twice every 3 weeks. Friendly service. Great quality food and plenty of it.

Hello views. Best little Indian in Auckland. Love their butter chicken. Wife loves all their food. A must for all curry buys.

Food is awesome, my favourite takeaway place. Dining though is a different story. The price is twice as much for smaller portions. I can understand they add on costs for the service, but it still seems unreasonable. Best to takeaway and have it in front of the telly!

The title pretty much sum it up. We have had takeaways on and off from here for many years. Chicken Tikka Masala was the most recent and usual it was good. never anything to complain. Safe bet for takeaways.

Went here for dinner on New Year's Eve, as I did the previous year. Had contacted them via their Facebook page to ensure they were open and to check what time they would close. They ensured that a table was already set for our party of 3 (the table would normally be set for 4 people) at the time I... More
