Very solid Indian food at this slightly upscale eatery. The mood is less Christmas light and more fashionable artisan light with dark wood tables and a cozy ambiance. Service is very fast and professional and the menu is pretty huge. The tandoori kebabs are exceptional, probably my favorite dish as they are dry, yet somehow moist and succulent inside with great seasoning and light spice. The samosas were good, but not exceptional, and a bit crispy and dry in the shell though the batter and veggies inside were tasty. The lamb curries were super flavorful, both the almond flavored one and the spicier briyani. The chicken tikka masala, typically the dish you judge an Indian restaurant from, is nice and buttery, with chicken breast incredibly tender and moist as it should be. Even the naan bread was flavorful and delicious, and perfect for mopping up the extra sauce.
I have never been disappointed only totally satisfied. Friendly environment, very nice (and of course spicy) food, so delicious. good service and even the take away serve you very well and quick. sometimes we need to wait outside the restaurant until to have a place. It becomes very famous between people in Auckland.
