Seen all the reviews about best this, best that etc. Sorry, we sent our food back to the kitchen as it just wasn't as we expected. The Chicken Tikka Masala just came out in a thick mass of tomato paste and was inedible.

Great Indian food, glad I saw it in Blenheim. Good ambiance and service. Samoas were great and dishes were actually spicy (unlike many things in NZ), excellent naan also. Definitely try it out if you want Indian.

Tired decor, staff who could not understand us due to being British. The food was average at best, I like a curry that contains fresh spices and vegetables which this did not.More
