We had a lovely meal, prompt service, had Butter Chicken & Mango Chicken, some interesting subtle flavours in both dishes. We had a lovely waitress who showed us around the restaurant, now not going to tell you what the secret room was, lets just say their restaurant is in an old bank building. The temple room was just beautiful, intimate... More

Another little gem in Invercargill. Food is excellent; everything is cooked to your own specifications. Curries cooked 'hot' or 'spicy' are just so (not the toned-down Kiwi-equivalent).

Facilities were spotless and food matched all the reviews given. Staff were very keen to ensure that everything was good and the food was excellent. Having travelled all over the world and sampled some of the most amazing Indian food this was certainly up there. Would definitely recommend if you like Indian food and are in Invercargill

We are very picky about Indian food. My wife is half Indian. We went here because it was near our hotel. But...surprise. It was excellent. Great food. Great service. For an Indian chain, squire a pleasant surprise.

Thoroughly recommend this traditional Indian restaurant. Food is amazing, setting is clean and modern and staff are professional. We made the trip from Bluff as there wasn't much option down there to eat, and were really happy we made the journey.

The food was really delicious, we had the non-veg thali and some of the lamb options and the food arrived promptly and was really good and copious. However, we would have preferred to have the choice of using the bigger menu and to share options, rather than having to pick from the more restrictive menu.
