We were tossing up between several of the Indian restaurants to eat at and I'm so glad we chose this one. The service was spot on and the food was absolutely amazing. We ordered the butter chicken and had cheese naan bread which i can honestly say was the best I've ever had. I would recommend to all. The prices... More

We went to the master of indian and bought three lunch deals, mango lassi and a couple of beers. Ordered chicken korma, chicken tikka and lamb rogan josh. Tikka was delicious and it had a smoky flavor. Lamb was succulent and soft. My three year old daughter got fish fingers and chips. The chips were crunchy with soft inside. She... More

Unfortunately this appeared to be a very poor curry house and I am left mystified at how this is considered one of the top restaurants in Taupo! At times in New Zealand we have struggled to find a decent curry, in fact we seem to have a few select curry places that we go so we tried the Master of... More

Taupo seems to do Indian restaurants well! This one had lovely atmospheric décor, delicious food, attentive, friendly but unobtrusive staff, plenty of room between tables, nice music...all combining for a lovely evening. Prices of $18-20 for a main.are very competitive, and steamed rice is included in the price. Guests are treated to a little basket of complimentary poppadoms as they... More

Had a family get together and everyone was beyond impressed... Such great food and the service was the best we have had! Dot. Be fooled by the sizing of the dishes though! They are more then filling and will keep you full for hours!

Our large social-event group was welcomed with efficient service, friendly helpful staff and excellent food (banquet style). Thanks for ensuring our evening was enjoyed by everyone and the selection of curries was delicious. Nothing was too much for the owners and the curry kept coming until we were full.

Absolutely fantastic meals full of wonderful flavours. The restaurant's decor is warm and inviting, the staff friendly and helpful, and the food hits the perfect balance of great value and excellent quality. The high praise on Trip Advisor is entirely justified!

Excellent food, awesome service. The staff was friendly and very receptive to our gluten free requirements. The curries are absolutely awesome. We recommend it for both dining or taking away. This is seriously good food made with fresh, first rate ingredients. Will definitely go back again.
