Restaurant was ok - food reasonable but certainly not worthy of no 1 restaurant rating on tripadvisor for Taupo. Curries laced with sugar. If this rating is genuine I am scared to try lower rated restaurants in Taupo!!!

I am sorry that you did not enjoy what our restaurant had to offer. Just like to say that our curries are not "laced with sugar". We only use sugar in Korma, Mango, Butter chicken and Makhani curries as they are naturally sweet gravies. We only use minimal amounts as we use cashews to naturally sweeten our gravy, we only...

Enjoyed a nice meal here on our second night in Taupo. The restaurant is very nicely decorated and the staff welcoming. We made our choices from the menu and were asked how hot we would like it. As my husband and I eat a lot of spicy food we made the mistake of going for "Indian hot" which was way... More

The Master of India provided an excellent value, good quality Indian meal. I had a Chicken Tikka Masala, rice and naan bread, all for under $20, and got so much food I couldn't finish it. All really nice and tasty. Drinks were also relatively cheap, e.g., $5 for beers that you'd pay at least $8 for in most NZ restaurants.... More

A group of 5 shared entrees and each had different main courses, from fish to goat to chicken to lamb. All the dishes were incredibly tasty. The staff, all part of the family were very friendly and helpful. The decorations are authentic and supplied from the grandmother in India. The cost was not excessive for the fantastic quality,
