By far the best Indian food in Wellington and maybe even New Zealand. The food is rich and flavoursome and packed with quality ingredients. They have some interesting speciality dishes too so there is plenty of choice for the more developed palette. The service is outstanding too which is always a welcome addition to any night out. This restaurant is... More

We enjoyed our meal here. We are vegetarian so often difficult to get enough choice in restaurants but there was plenty here. The service was exceptional and the atmosphere pleasant. Recommend booking at busier times but we went at about 5pm on a Friday which wasn't too busy. As we left though there were queues building. My only criticism was... More

I ordered Veg kofta curry and it wasnt as per the authentic veg kofta curry that any indian restaurant would serve. Vegetable kofta curry than any indian would expect is a thick creamy cashewnut and tomato gravy with kofta balls mostly stuffed with veggies and dryfruit inside. And what I get is a onion tomato masala gravy with peas and... More

Good Indian....good and plentiful. Unless you are really, really hungry pass on the appetizer. It, along with a main and naan will leave you waddling out of the restaurant. Friendly and unless you are very early make a reservation.

We have eaten here a coule of times with super food - especially some of the vegetarian options. All the dishes I have eaten here have been prepared with generous quantities of whole spices which sets them apart tastewise from some more average Indian restaurants. Service is very prompt and location works well for dinner before a show at any... More

Staff were attentive and food was served in a reasonbale time. However, the food was very much average and it seemed to lack flavour.

I have tried a few Indian restaurants but the butter Chicken and prawn dish prepared here was absolutely delicious that I must rate this restaurant to have the best Indian meal in town. The service is great, food prices are a bit expensive especially the seafood meals, but the price is worth the meal that you will pay for. Located... More

I followed the advice of a couple of reviews I read here and had one of the best Indian meals I have ever had. The staff were friendly and their recommendations were great. Price-wise it was very reasonable. Highly recommend them.
