The best Indian food in Waitakere that I have come across so far in 4 years! Their naan bread is so fresh and tasty. The curries are fabulous. We also started with the mixed sizzling entree which was yum. The staff provide great service and attention also.

Loved the decor, stylish and tasteful…planning to do book family function soon ….
The food was mouth watering and superb service.platter for two -(entree) is to die for and the Dal Makeni. My husband devoured every morsel !!!

Congratulations to the owner and hoping to see a branch open in New market soon so we do not have to travel so far…but it is worth it!!

Perfect place for a quiet, romantic, elegant and sophisticated evening.Reasonable priced and friendliy staff

We went on a Saturday night in a big group (20). It was fantastic! The décor is amazing. The service friendly and efficient and the food divine. The best Indian food I have eaten for a long time (and I love Indian cuisine). We had a fantastic night and will definitely be back.

We’ve been here 3 times (twice dining in and once for take away) and it is fantastic! The food is amazing, the staff are friendly and attentive and the decor is stunning. The restaurant is huge with high ceilings and good lighting and there is ample easy parking. Indian food is my favourite cuisine and this will definitely be my restaurant of choice from now on!!

Newly discovered by my husband and I, we have been to the restaurant only twice but the service the food and the staff are just the best. The ambiance is also pleasing. My 11 year old grandson also enjoyed it as they had children’s meals and his was a manageable size. I cannot say enough about the excellent service and attention to detail, most pleasing. This is going to be a regular event for my husband and I because I just loved the Prawn Malabari it’s the best.

Came here for a quick date with the husband. I was really impressed! The staff are super friendly and were very attentive. Always made sure we had enough to drink and checked on us a few times to make sure we were happy with the food :)

The service was also really quick! The food took less than 10 minutes after ordering and it was fresh and hot. I had the lamb biryani and my husband had the mango chicken curry and we were going to swap half way through because I couldn’t make up my mind what I wanted to eat. However the biryani was so tasty I couldn’t bring myself to share and I ate all of it myself!

I will be (and already have been) telling all my friends to go here! Will definitely be back :)

I loved the ambiance at the restaurant. The team at the restaurant were courteous and our group was greeted by the owner of the restaurant. The food was delicious with large portions of their dishes served. There is ample space for large groups as we were about 10+. An Indian restaurant I would recommend to everyone who love Indian food and those who wish to try the cuisine.
