We have dined in / taken away many times as a family. Never disappointed. Usually 20 min wait for food. One occasion takeaway order was late as they were very busy and we were given a complimentary drink.

Authentic Indian food, flavours and memories flew back from 24 years ago in India. Very friendly host, quick good service. A big surprise in our travels through Southland/Otago. Highly recommended.
