Best Indian meal I've had in New Plymouth - recommend the biryani but my fussy kids said their butter chicken was the best ever and the masala was also delicious and the light and flakey paratha was fabulous! Thank you for the great service too

Driving in from out of town we stopped here for food before heading to our accommodation. Fast friendly service. Food was good, South Indian food is a bit different but it's great! Give it a whirl!

The most authentic tasty Indian in town by far. Every dish tastes like it has a different base not like many other Indian restaurants around. Great friendly service.
