The Master of India and a great selection of dishes and all were delicious We had the paneer sagg, goat dhansakk and mango chicken. The staff was very friendly and... More

I ordered a Jalfriezi which was only just passable. It tasted a bit like tomato sauce with too much spice. I ordered medium which was way too hot! The staff were very attentive though and friendly.The restaurant was welcoming.

We went into Master of India quite late in the evening as a few other places along the street had closed. The couple running the place welcomed us in and were absolutely wonderful, so friendly! The food came out very quickly and was delicious, very flavorful and not too oily or salty. Servings were very generous (especially tandoori bread). Good... More

We had butter chicken here and the taste was well off the normal butter chicken we've had at other Indian restaurants so much so that we had to return food for a full refund!

To this brilliant family run restaurant, thank you for your amazing authentic Indian food! This was our second visit to this restaurant as part of our North Island travels. The food and decor was as amazing as it had been on our first visit six months ago. The garlic naans are "see, want, order more". We have tried the lamb,... More
