Stopped in for lunch as they seemed to have good specials - don't try to swap anything out though as you'll end up paying full price even though they say it'll only be $1. Portions were decent and the food was good.

We ordered the meal from our Motor Lodge, to which it was delivered. The gentleman helped me to decide on the dishes we chose, and the meal was delicious. I recommend the restaurant to anyone. I wish our town had as good a place to eat good Indian food.

We loved the crisp onion bhaji; the cottage cheese in the saag paneer was a great texture and chicken tikka masala was spicy and delicious. Wouldn't recommend the butter chicken unless you like it very very sweet. Good service. Would have preferred Bollywood videos to the mylie Cyrus on MTV. Overall very good experience.

This is one of the better Indian restaurants I've eaten at. We took no 13 which is a 2 course meal with mix of everything. The taste is great and good service, recommended if you are in Hastings

Great atmosphere and genuine Indian food. Best chilli chicken ever!! Service is spot on. It's place we go regularly, both dine in and take away. Works for whole family with choices on menu.

If you enjoy Indian food, this place is a must when you visit Hastings. NZ. Food was fresh, cooked to your heat preference and well presented. Staff are friendly and very helpful. Service is as quick or slow as you like. We had the banquet meal and took home enough leftovers for dinner the next day!

Have been regular patrons of the restaurant for at least 5 years and have always received quality food and excellent service. Eating in, or delivery, the food is always hot and spice level always as requested. Consistently delicious Indian cuisine.

Very friendly and hospitable staff who go out of their way to ensure you enjoy your meal with them. My elderly mum forgot her glasses and couldn't read the menu and they gave her a spare pair to use. Food was great, our whole family enjoy eating here regularly. They do the best chilli chicken I've ever had. Scallops were... More

My first choice of Indian food in Hawkes Bay (I am a very picky eater lol). Beautiful looking restaurant - service is always great and they have great lunch specials as well which I usually take advantage of. Been going here for the last five years.

Beautiful food, but the furniture so so uncomfortable it's hard to relax. The chairs are too low (or the tables too high), if u r sharing your food across the table, it makes for a uncomfortable experience
