We had dinner there in a Monday evening spending a day trip in Hanmer from Christchurch. First of all, restaurant staff brought the starter and my partner's main at the same time, which was very unprofessional I first thought, then l later learned waiter messed up our order by not taking my order down. While we were having the tandoori chicken, my partner noticed chicken was undercooked as we saw blood coming out the bone in the drum stick, we notified the staff, he then took the piece my partner had to the kitchen, and brought out a new piece later on and told us it wasn't blood, but the red sauce that looks like blood, so nothing to worry about. As we've been to quite a few Indian restaurants in Christchurch and tandoori chicken has always been the course we order, and nothing like what we had in this place; when we almost finished the chicken and my partner's main, my main still hadn't been brought to the table yet, so I checked with the staff, he then told us the staff who served us before was new and didn't take that order for my main. All they did was blaming the staff for the mistake he made, but didn't hold account for.
We thought this is newly established Indian restaurant, that has had advertisement in Christchurch from time to time, was worth trying out, but apparently made mistake; had really bad experience, will never come back to this on, certainly not any of his other restaurants in Christchurch or elsewhere.
