Fantastic meal

On our way through Taupo. The decision was made to stop for lunch and what a great decision that was! Stopping at Master of India restaurant was a pleasure, the staff were polite and friendly and above all the food was excellent. The flavours were full and there was plenty of it.

We had originally intended to go to a Thai restaurant, but was having trouble tracking one down with a kids menu, it was raining, we were hungry, and we saw they had a kids menu! We were welcomed in and seated in a pleasant booth. The decor was stunning and the care taken evident. It took a while for us... More

We rang ahead to make sure MofI could deal with vegans. The person we spoke to wasn't sure, said the chef was in soon and he would call back after checking. Not only did he call back, but he listed the dishes we would be able to have. Excellent service. The restaurant is reasonably big and was almost full (Saturday... More

When you first walk in you are greeted by such friendly and attentive staff. The food was just as impressive and the garlic naan is not to go past. Would definitely eat there again!!

Walk in the door and smell the lovely aroma of Indian food. Decor was fantastic and the background music wasn't too loud. We had the lunch special which was great value. Very flavoured and the best naan bread I have ever tasted. Will definitely be going back.
