We had never been so far, it kind of never worked time wise but a friend had their curry at a meeting yesterday and it smelled divine. So we popped in for lunch today as we were in town by chance. OMG! the best lunch I had in quite a while and definitively the best Indian dishes. The lunch time curry combo has 4! different curry dishes, all excellent, I couldn't pick a favorite. And all that for $ 11!??? The guy said that they don't do a lot of advertising and if we liked the food we could spread the word. So here we go! ;-) Oh my, am VERY happy to recommend this place!!!

On December 18, Waka Kotahi New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) dropped the speed limits along SH6 between Nelson and Blenheim.

Police say the majority of road users were adhering to the new limits, with an educational approach had been taken in monitoring driver behaviour, while motorists have been largely accepting of the changes.

What has been your experience of the speed limit changes? Has it resulted in noticeably slower travel times or different driver behaviour?
