I was told there are two great Indian restaurants in little Blenheim and I can see this has to be one of them. Beautifully prepared food served with grace and friendliness. Good value. A very professional eating place I will call in to again when in the right locality for it.

We love this restaurant! Superb presentation, filling, value for money curries...but the best bit is their naans! Village India Restaurant is great for a once in a while treat but I cook curry at home too so I always send hubby off to get the naans on the way home from karate on a Tuesday as you just can't beat...

Seems to keep getting better. As always excellent taste and good service. Perhaps time to refurbish though, especially the toilets.

The food is cooked to absolute perfection. Flavors and smells are enticingly true indian. Service is professional and a reasonable selection of gewviirztraminer to compliment those wonderful indian spices. Intimate setting very quiet background music. The slow braised lamb curries are to die for. My husband had lamb pasanda and I had saag gosht. Wow fantastic.

In centre of town. Very good service and the food is excellent with a good range on the menu. Plenty of room around the tables and view of the main street. Have been several times and found the food excellent as well as being well presented.

Ordered a take away, ready on time but really poor value for money. I ordered lamb rogan josh and I had only 4 pieces of dried up lamb and heaps of sauce. Not what i had hoped for. Keema naan was also so very dry. Not impressed.
