Still good and still the best in Blenheim

It's a bit shocking that such a popular restaurant which delivers good Indian food consistently is ranked so poorly on Tripadvisor in Blenheim. Village India beats any other Indian restaurant in Blenheim hands down.

The menu was comprehensive, with a lot of old favourite items, and some less well known dishes. Our waitress was delightful - friendly and helpful. I told her I wanted my meal hot - Indian hot, not Kiwi hot - and when it was served, it was good and hot - just right. We were asked if we would like... More

Simply good indian food on offer here. Portions are generous in fact we had to take some of our starter home as there was so much and we still had our main course to go. Four very satisfied people left this restaurant all vowing to return. We bought our drinks here but you can BYO too.

We go to Blenheim every 2 weeks for work. Staying overnight means we have tried eating out at many of Blenheims restaurants. Got to say of all the places to choose from, we find our top choice is Village India! The staff are always friendly, efficient and helpful! The standard of food is great! Many choices and always consistent! Scrumptious,... More

I've been to Village india on many occasions and have not felt respected or taken seriously by the staff. I often go with my friends, all university students and feel that because of our age/ appliance we are not offered as much respect as others being served. We are all polite and quite, being respectful to others dining but are... More

At a loss one evening on our visit in Blenheim and came across the Village Indian. The rest of the town was quiet however opened the door and found a place buzzing packed with the locals. Great food and service very good inspite of the numbers. All the dishes can be 'adjusted' in hotness and good size portions. A real... More

Another great meal out at village. Rocky and the team looking after us with no faults. Great food mild if you don't like the heat or the can really ramp it up for the Chile heads. Would eat there every night.
