“Fresh and aromatic”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

This is some of the best Indian food I have tasted in a while. Try the naan bread - it is so light it melts in your mouth. There was not a crumb left on our plates at the end of the meal.

“Everything is lovely here!!”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

Great Indian food and knowledgeable staff for 'beginners' to Indian food. Portions look small but definitely are not!! Beautiful décor, great view of the Bay and indoors or outside dining.

“Great everything!”
Reviewed 25 April 2014

I don't know what I loved the most here.... actually i do, I loved everything!
The food was excellent, very tasty and fresh.
The location is great and hard to beat in Timaru. You can choose to eat inside or on the terrace facing the ocean
The restaurant seems very new and is decorated with taste, using old family pictures on the walls which give the place a lot of personality and character.
Least but not last, the friendliness of the staff!!! People are generally friendly in NZ but they raise the bar pretty high!

“Enjoyable experience”
Reviewed 21 April 2014 via mobile

Chose this place for lunch & they didn't charge a surcharge on the public holiday. Very clean bathroom & restaurant areas. We chose curries that included a naan bread each. Food was enjoyable, nothing spectacular, but we still had a nice meal. Service was good as well.

“Awesome Food”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

We enjoyed a lovely authentic Indian meal here - portions were good and food was excellent. Staff were friendly, too. If you phone to make a reservation make sure to ask for a table at the lower section at the window that overlooks Caroline Bay. Nothing better than a 'meal with a view'.
