We dined in on the 10th of April and as usual the food was delicious and up to our expectations. Although we visit intermittently, Pramad, the duty manager remembered the dishes we usually order, and the drinks, and the extra naan bread we always take home for tomorrow's breakfast. It was over three months since our last visit and we... More

Lovely range of dishes to choose from. Comfortable tables and chairs. Friendly staff and fast service. A walk through the square after dinner is a great idea. Overall a pleasant dinner and walk in. Palmerston North.

Our family are visiting Palmerton North and at the advice of our motel, chose to get an Indian takeaway. We chose chicken korma and chicken Tikka masala. We also got a side order of Naan bread and poppadoms. Cost came to $80 which is reasonable. Highlight was the Naan bread which was delicious! The curries were also really tasty and... More

Mughlai chicken which had authentic Tandoor taste( clay oven) and Khaman Dholkla ( Gujarat's well known food item ) was extra ordinary....

Unfortunately when we arrived a fire alarm had gone off in the main building & all the staff & diners were standing around outside (in th rain!) so after waiting for about 15 mins we decided...

We loved the thoughtful service as well as our food. I had a goat dish that was spiced just right, as was the chicken of my partner. Rice was done perfectly, and naan was delicate. Everything served piping hot. And the room was attractively decorated and arranged so that conversation was easy, with little background noise.
