I have had some excellent Indian meals on my various travels across NZ, but the meal at Coriander's has to take prized place. The service was good, food absolutely exquisite, with good ambience as well.

We were fitted in on a busy night. The service was excellent. We were served promptly and the curries and bread were delicious.

After settling in to our accommodation we - two Poms and an Indian friend - fancied some good Indian cuisine and we made the right choice. We ordered a takeaway which was excellent. Genuine Punjabi food as well as a regional selection of Indian foods.

I had heard Corianders was good but had never visited. We ordered 2 items for take out from Corianders two days ago and were told our food would be ready in 15 minutes.
