not too bad there Kaila

Posted on 08 / 10 / 2011

Found out the ladies name is Kaila because was wearing a Kaila Jacket he he. The Dahi Poori is sooo yum. Six pieces for around $7-9. Mouth tantilising taste these Poori are with no onion or garlic. Little things that you are meant to put in one go in your mouth, open really wide now. Not much more for people that don't eat onion or garlic unless you order in advance or happy to have a potatoe curry. Can eat the cutlets with the sweet sauce too.

Pros: dahi poori
Cons: onions & garlic

Acceptable Indian fare

Posted on 06 / 06 / 2009

Ate there for the first time a few weeks back. It was good, inexpensive Indian food, and they were happy to adapt for vegans. The place is nothing special to look at, and all things considered, the food wasn't good enough to bring me back in future (there are better Auckland options - consider Satya, a wonderful meat/veg place that caters to vegans, and is not listed on Happy Cow), but if you are around, or looking for a good cheap feed, this place will do the trick. It is better quality than Rasoi, but not "great".

Pros: cheap, good portions, friendly/knowledgeable staff
Cons: atmosphere?, menu a bit boring

i love this resturant-the staff are always really friendly and are always willing to make dishes vegan for me-the Masala dosa is gorgeous-my fav and the thali's are fantastic value for money- highly recommended

Pros: fresh food, friendly staff, good value

Roti not vegan?

Posted on 03 / 22 / 2007

The guy who was serving me said that the currys were all vegan and the roti. So i got two currys the vegie curry and the yellow potato and poppy seed curry. The vegie curry was quite spicy and didn't taste that great. The potato curry was great. When i left i asked to have a roti for teh road and he said it had dairy in it... so i was quite annoyed since i asked him when i arrived if it was vegan.

Pros: cheap
Cons: unhelpful staff

    Never tasted such a horrible food. The guy standing even didnt use the gloves to give the sweets. And the curry had thin hair in it. Would never recommend any one to go their.
