Upon our arrival in Nelson, we had only heard good things about the Indian Cafe, so off we popped one Friday night to give it a go. We had no reservations but were seated promptly, the staff were friendly and muticultural. We got a little lost in translation as is often the case with my Scottish accent but we got... More

After reading the other reviews I had quite high expectations, but we only had the chance to sample the Indian Cafe at lunch, and I fear that the lunch special curries simply don't stack up. The best of the bunch was the chef's special of the day - a very flavorful dahl. And the naan bread was superb. Unfortunately the... More

Just the way it is . . . the food is yummy. And . . . . requests for slight modifications (eg less oil in a dish) don't phase the service staff. The ambience is charming and relaxing. Overall, really good value for money. It is one of my favourites in Nelson. Thanks to you all.

Lunch or evening meal is equally good. Our son always asks for Indian Café butter chicken as a treat. I have tried many places here and away and have yet to find one as good.

This is not our first visit to this restaurant and it will not be the last. We have never been disappointed in the food or the service. If this is your first time to the restaurant I would always recommend the Banquet it is very reasonably priced and will cover treats from the full menu. We have an 8 year... More
