We were craving Indian food so we stopped in and had the banquet dinner. It was great because you got a little taste of everything in the entree. Then the main you choose from a variety of dishes. We were so full at the end. It was all beautifully presented and cooked to perfection.

We went here for dinner a couple of nights ago because a number of reviewers seemed to like it. We ate in, the atmosphere was fairly nice, though with the front door open the traffic noise was quite something. That aside, this was the worst Indian food we have ever eaten, and we have had Indian food in several different countries and many different restaurants around NZ, and would have been happy with moderate quality. But if I was Indian I would be embarrassed to serve up the chunks of cooked corned beef in a feeble attempt at an Indian style sauce. Both our meals were beef, and they both contained corned beef throughout. My beef madras sauce was light yellow, mostly cream and coconut. Food courts in malls have better Indian food, even if it is probably from a jar.
When they came to ask us how it was we were too embarrassed to say, and we ended up just paying and leaving and not making a fuss. They need to learn how to cook Indian food if they are going to run an Indian restaurant.

We ordered online for a takeaway delivery, although the restaurant is only about a kilometre away. We were quite accepting of the 45 minute wait mentioned when we ordered. About an hour later a strange car came down our driveway, paused, then backed out again. No food. We phoned the restaurant and were told "He's on his way". I think not, another hour passed before the food was delivered. It was cold. The paper bags which had bread in them were soaked in oil, and gave the appearance of food that had been sitting for some time. Perhaps we wouldn't have waited so long if we had phoned in our order, perhaps the whole experience would have been different if we had dined in the restaurant. If this in not the case, I am struggling to see how this business is still open. I certainly won't be using it again.

Been there twice already. It's a great, peaceful and fine restaurant with a reasonable price and perfect amount of food. The staffs there always check how you are doing and make sure you are being taken care of. Had lots of laughter with them. It's a great place to go and definitely worth the trip to drive a to quiet and nice place to have a meal. 5 stars for food, staff and atmosphere provided there!
