This little restaurant is on the corner of one of the main thoroughfares in Taupo town. Food is good, prices reasonable and service was OK.

Tonight was a friends birthday, fourteen of us on a busy Saturday night. Another birthday party was in progress..and yet, we were treated as though we were special guests..Yes the service was superb matched only by authentic Indian cuisine. I had asked for a medium byriani which I found too hot for my taste, I should have asked for mild,... More

Last night we enjoyed a fabulous meal at Indian Affair, Taupo. Harry and the staff once again showed their professionalism with great service and delicious wholesome food. We highly recommend this restaurant. Oops, I almost forgot to mention the mixed entrée, wow, now that was something amazing!

Lovely food, we started with samosas which were delicious. Goan fish curry and prawn curry were our choices and they were very pleasing. A bit on the pricy side otherwise great.

Yum, and yum again! We were looking for a quick and easy vegetarian takeaway meal. Tasty, but not expensive. We ordered mild saag mushrooms, Bombay aloo and Shahi paneer. Plus poppadoms. Came to around $45. The menu has 11 vegetarian curries. The restaurant is hard to miss (corner of Ruapehu and Tuwharetoa) and has a nice, new, stylish decor. Really... More

I am totally over butter chicken and korma or I now prefer paneek makhani having absolutely no flavour and just tasting like tomato sauce. Finally satisfied and found great taste with Indian affair (the one in town by farmers) I tried a mouthful of my sisters and it was so delicious I had to get my own. Also good value.... More

We chose this restaurant on the basis of other TripAdvisor reviews and were not disappointed. Having found it hard to get enough veggies in our meals for a while on this trip, we opted for the vegetarian banquet, giving us a good range of dishes although there were only two of us. It was excellent. The entrees arrived sizzling on... More
