Will design for Dahi Puri

I went for a walk yesterday during lunch and my curiosity had me peering into the window of a not-yet-ready-to-open new business.

Freshly painted dark red walls. Luxurious fabric covered chairs.

What’s this? A tell-tale shiny new sign resting across some chairs. It bears the name of one of my all time favourite restaurants.

Delight! Excite!

This restaurant is consistently considered one of Auckland’s favourite Indian restaurants and the place to go for south Indian food. They currently have 3 restaurants and this will be their 4th.

Many years ago, The Koala lived behind their Hobson Street restaurant. This was in the early days long before I fell in love with cooking. We ate there a lot. When the family realised that The Koala was artistically inclined (the art in the alleyway gave it away), they requested help with a child’s homework project. Butter chicken was payment for artistic guidance.

I wonder if times have changed?

I am Genie, a graphic designer/photographer obsessed with food and bunnies. I live in Whanganui, New Zealand with my husband, The Koala and our two rabbits, Kobe and Bento. I write about my hedonistic ways and I love the mantra "Eat well, travel often". I prefer not to write about myself in third person.


  1. You must mean Satya! I didn’t realise they used to have a Hobson Street restaurant. I have been to their K’Rd and Sandringham branches and in both cases preferred my own South Indian favourite, Ras Vatika on Dominion Road. Satya does have the advantage of having a more atmospheric dining room and meat dishes on offer though!

      You are right, it is Satya. I can’t put a thing past you Nom Nom Panda 🙂

      I haven’t tried Ras Vatika. I better give that a whirl before trying the new Satya.
