Don't miss this one. This is definitely a go-to restaurant in Auckland.
Have not had Indian Food this good since New Delhi.

An elegant neighbourhood restaurant...
Will be anticipating a return to this one next visit to NZ.

You are only one of the restaurants so far which have had a good review from me so you are lucky to be in that category! Food extremely delicious and great for a local meal although not that fancy, but people do get a bit dressed up. People are friendly and want to help you out for any of the food and speak very good English.

Where do I start. My daughter booked this last minute dinner for Mother’s Day on Sunday. The place was full and buzzing. Had read so many good reviews so was expecting a high standard.

The whole family liked the decor and the layout of the restaurant. The lighting was just right, low lighting but enough to see our food. We were seated outside just by the sliding doors, and not very often you see indian restaurants with cloth covered tables. Makes it look less like a school canteen.

The service is really attentive, and although they were very very busy, the food and drinks arrived quite quickly. We ordered sheesh kebab for starters, and chicken dishes for the main meal. The food was really delicious. The dishes were distinct both in flavour and texture which was great, as I have been to other restaurants where all the dishes look and taste the same.

I enjoyed the background instrumental music being played, and that makes quite a difference to the atmosphere in a restaurant.

The only disappointment was they had only one choice for desserts. Would be great to have a few more indian desserts on the menu.

Will definitely be back with family and friends.

Only had takeaway as the place is always crowded.
The curries were really tasty and prices comparable to other Indian places around Auckland. All in all, a very good choice if you feel like Korma.
