|Satya South Indian Restaurants and Owner Swamy Akuthota & his wife should be applauded for such a magnanimous gesture. I know where I'll be spending my money when next in Auckland.

|Thanks a lot for that, Lin Nah. My post wasn't very informative!
And I agree, whilst not a fan of Indian food, they've scored a customer out of me!

|Just a fantastic offer from a restaurant that when first opened in Hobson Street, stuggled for a while, until people realised that the food was truely exceptional. Now it's so great to see them giving back.
I can proudly say that I have dined here often and will continue to do so - congratulations to the owners and may you continue to prosper through your generosity.

|A couple who did not declare more than $1 million in cash sales at their Auckland restaurant have been sentenced to eight months' home detention.
Taruun and Shetall Khurana, who ran the Indian Kitchen restaurant in Howick, were sentenced in the Manukau District Court yesterday on four tax evasion charges.
An IRD official said the offending had ripped off taxpayers by nearly $450,000.

|Alan M: The couple you mentioned who runs Indian Kitchen have nothing to do with Satya South Indian Restaurants. Why is this posted here?
For the record Satya South Indian Restaurants are owned by Swamy and Padmaja Akuthota (and their family).
