Been here for lunch couple of weeks ago. Had Lamb Kadai, Roti, lemon tea and rice. Everything was Excellent. But Lemon tea was little bitter. I think the lemon wasn't fresh. Had nice conversation with business owner and Chef Manohari Lal. 4+ rating

We visited this place for dinner on an apparently "busy" night when the restaurant was choc-a-block with take away orders. I dont know if that can be an excuse for the poor food quality though. We ordered Puri Bhaji, Dal Makhni and Onion pakoras. Some...More

If you desire genuine Indian curry, then you have to try out Chimney's! I understand that many Kiwi's can't quite handle anything beyond butter chicken but for those who can, this place is a must! So many options and the quality is superb! I have...More
