Unpretentious little place about ten tables brick walls but my ,my ,can't appearances be deceptive . Truly punching above its weight,and competition for any resturant anywhere in India. Glorious Dosa ,Idli AlooTika etc and why did I only disover it at the end of my holiday? Also marvellously cheap ,two hungry men on a mission and it came to only... More

Great little vegetarian indian restaurant. Not plush but friendly , cheap and delicious. The curries are nice but what's special is the range of stuffed dosas (crepes) and also the savoury sides like idlis which are the best I've had in New Zealand. If you're vegan, check for which dishes contain ghee. Recommended.

Food was very fresh and there was great variety of food on the menu . Food was great tasting and service was very good. Lots of indian street food also on the menu and the Masoor Masala Dosa was fantastic. Gujrati thali is a must if looking for a complete meal

Loved the dosa's and paneer paratha. Would definitely go there again but not with more than 6 people and without a booking as it is quite cramped in there. I will recommend the maysuri masala dosa, pani puri and paneer paratha. Some of the best tasting indian food for a casual night out in Auckland. Well priced menu that caters... More

I've been coming here for quite a while and I love their food. It's a little cafe on Dominion Road and you can get an excellent meal here for very little. They make the best dosas in Auckland.

We have been eating here every couple of weeks for a year or more. The premises aren't magnificent, but the food is. We rate it is the best Indian food we have eaten in Auckland (Satya comes second). The prices are very reasonable, too, and the service is friendly and good. We won't go anywhere else now for Indian food.

A friend and I tend to meet at this tiny little café in the heart of Dominion Road when we want to eat great authentic Indian food. Granted that the café could do with a facelift or a whole body lift as the paint from the walls are peeling and there is only seating for probably a handful of people... More
