We found this restaurant by accident and weren't disappointed. The food is very good and at reasonable prices. We found the staff very helpful and pleasant.
Overall it was a great meal.

“Takeout Champions”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

Needed a feed, on the run, called in, ordered, out in 15 minutes with some excellent dishes that lasted two meals for two hungry adults- admittedly no longer teenagers though.

“Consistently Good Food”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

Little India, The Cresent, Invercargill opened up a couple of years ago in a building that had previously had 2 cafe/restaurants in there and some might have been tempted to think "how long will this one last?"
I am not sure how long it was before we went there to dine but we were very pleased and now go there regularly. I love any excuse to eat Indian as it is the last thing in the world that I would try to cook at home.....so it is a treat.
The staff are excellent.....One time we were in a group and my brother's meal was too hot so they cooked him a new one because "we want everyone here to have a positive dining experience". We have never had a bad meal or cause to query or complain. Sometimes it can seem slow but I guess it is because they cook everything from scratch rather than having bins of food that are reheated.
Complimentary poppadoms are always given at the table and they remember you and go the extra mile for birthdays etc......they even sing too!!!
We have our favourite dishes but I think I should go through the whole menu.
If you are thinking of going there remember that mild = medium hot, and medium = hot....You have been warned. Enjoy.

“Disappointing Buffet!”
Reviewed 24 March 2014

We ate the lunch buffet here on 5th of March while driving the SSR. This has to be the smallest buffet spread we have ever tried. There were only 4 items: Steamed rice, Chhole(spicy chic peas), butter chicken and lamb curry. The rice was very dry(may be because it was in an open container with a warmer below) and the curries were very spicy. We had to buy the Naans separately but both the Garlic Naan and Butter Naan were under cooked.

What kind of Indian buffet doesn't come with kebabs/sweets/bread(Roti/Naan)?

The 2 stars are because it is in an good location(we got parking nearby) and the decor is good unlike most of the Indian eateries.

“Excellent indian food”
Reviewed 21 March 2014 via mobile

The food was great!
The staff was very polite and helpfull.
The interior wasn't like normal indian restaurant but had a modern feel. Still there was some indian music playing.
Nothing bad to say, we are going back in Dunedin!
