Enjoy authentic Indian flavours in a fine-dining setting at this neighbourhood favourite, in the heart of beautiful Arrowtown.

With new owners in 2021 this mainstay of the Arrowtown dining scene is set to go to a whole new level. Expect traditional Indian hospitality in a contemporary dining room bathed in sophisticated mood lighting.

The menu focuses on delicious flavours from India and is designed for sharing - ideal for big groups. Try it's mouth watering Samosa chat or choose from dishes cooked in a traditional tandoor like Aatish-e-chaap, vegetarian favourites like Paneer Tikka Masala, Non-vegetarian favourites like Goat Rogan Josh and as well as a mouthwatering selection of homemade chutneys and sides. Don’t miss the special Peshwari naan, filled with crunchy cashews and a dusting of coconut.

There’s an excellent selection of Central Otago wines and craft beers on offer (there’s nothing like a cold one alongside a fiery Vindaloo!), as well as unusual Indian sweets such as Gulab jamun with Phirni.

This restaurant combines beautiful presentation with expert cooking. It’s a winning recipe in our books...
