Just enjoyed a really excellent Indian meal tonight. Food was excellent, beers were cold, service was very good, value for money was not a problem. Restaurant was good. Unfortunately the evening was spoiled for us and other diners by a very loud obnoxious group of Indian diners who appeared to be creating as much disturbance as possible for the owners and staff. Very unfair to all involved. Apart from that a great night and no problems from the staff of the restaurant.

While the ambience of the place is fine (compared to similar Indian restaurants) the length of time taken for the service and the quality, quantity and taste of the food was mediocre at best. The in-between meal enquiry of how the food is is really a mockery of hospitality. It's always hard for a person of Indian origin to like an Indian restaurant. This place does not help elevate the general ranking any higher in my view.

We visited on a busy Sunday night. We were sat behind a pillar and had to request service at almost every point throughout the meal. We ate the vegetarian banquet; the mixed platter starter was OK but the main dishes were not satisfactory. The paneer dish was very buttery and the dhal watery. We paid at the bar before our plates had been cleared and were not asked if we'd enjoyed the meal. Disappointing all round.

After arriving at 7pm we decided to leave at 9.20pm rather than waiting for our main course. The staff were not willing to accept feedback and did not see the issue. We paid for the over priced starters and drinks pushed for a discount (which they did not give) based on the terrible service and length of wait. After the 'charge like a wounded Bull' payment we left hungry and grumpy. You have left our overseas visitors with a very bad impression. There are some great restaurants in Rotorua, this is not one of them......

Filthy food filthy service giving feedback that they are not willing to take. No value for money. Beware of the Afghani chicken.
