We always go to dinner at Indian Affair when we stay in Taupo, as the food is excellent. The staff are very friendly and attentive, and we've never had a problem with our orders (we're fans of the good-ol' 'medium' spiced curry).

I can eat indian affair's butter chicken every day. I am sure other dishes are as good as butter chicken. Me n my partner went to indian affair last night and had butter chicken again. I really like what they have done with the decor. Never seen anything like this before.
