Have been here a few times for takeaway. Naan is great and the staff are very friendly. The curry is consistently watery, no matter what you order which a bit disappointing. In general, not bad for the price but definitely not the best I've ever...More

Tasty quality food with plenty of choice. Salmon special was a big hit and naan bread was delicious. Onion bargi and samosa starters were excellent. Definitely will revisit on a future visit to the capital.

Just a stone's throw from both the Wellington Hospital and only a 10 minute drive from the Wellington city centre, our fully licensed restaurant can seat up to 75 people and is a great place for both large groups, smaller parties and those looking for a takeaway. With a combination of friendly and informed service, and a reputation for delivering fresh and authentic flavours it is hard to go past this Out of This World Indian Experience.
