At first expecting the "Malaysian" influence to be more "Chinese" but we were pleasantly surprised at the Indian overtones. The presentation of the Dosai was impressive and the goat curry met with approval. It appears they have breached licensing laws and been forced to stop selling alcohol until the end of this week. (possibly back by Friday 13th). As with... More

We had a dinner here - noodles and goat curry, both very delicious. Not exactly the most romantic place I have been to, very limited space... Fyi they dont serve alcohol these days which surprised lot of people :-)

We went here the other night after reading the reviews on tripadvisor and plus just down the Street from where we were staying. The food was very good and service very efficient. Partner had a lamb Dosa and was very impressed when it came, presentation was very nice and he really enjoyed this dish. I had a Chicken curry and... More

Had murtobak which had never had before a very light wrap like meal with spicy lamb. Couple of sauces included. Tasted very fresh. Chicken satay starters. Small place but steady trade. Very enjoyable.

Doesn't look like anything special from outside and the tables are very tightly packed inside (also no loo.) Food was very good, and price was very reasonable! Breads were delicious! Unfortunately the jasmine rice was already cold when it was served. Bring your own booze. Allergens are not listed on the menu and we suspect that one or more of... More

Good value, yummy food - worth a visit. The service was really quick and friendly. We had Briyani and chicken curry and both were delicious (large portions) as was the roti. Wine is well priced and generous glass. If you feel like a quick Malaysian meal, you can't go wrong.

In my opinion, this is the worst BYO in Wellington. The place is small and cramped and they always overbook so you end up with too many people cramped around a tiny table. The food is average and overpriced for what you get. I ordered a chicken main which came out on an entree plate- very small serving. I also... More

Great atmosphere a little intimate, very friendly waiters/cooks, was a pleasure. I had a really delicious goat curry and my daughter said her butter chicken curry was the best she'd had. Proper papadums too! Felt warm due to the cosey interior and welcoming staff.

Cruising the streets and we came upon this place. Plenty of selection in a quaint room decorated with tribal masks. The tables are quite close but lovely people in here. Tasty food reasonable price.
