We walked out

This is on first floor, had no menus without garlic and conveyed to us that the Masala is already prepared and hence can not make without garlic. This implies that the food cooked may not be fresh but is pre-cooked.

Based on the reviews of Bombay palace, we visited this restaurant for an early dinner. The location itself is nice overlooks Lake Wanaka. The staff is pretty friendly and attentive to your needs. The problem is with the food. We ordered a paneer dish ( can't rememeber the name , shahi paneer ? ) . The the gravy definitely had... More

Our baby had just turned 2 and we took her on a trip to Wanaka to celebrate the occasion. A inconsiderate Caucasian Female customer of theirs took offence to our barely 2 year old's tanty and left without ordering. The manager's response was really rude and insulting at this point he said "I will ask them to leave" by pointing... More

I visited this restaurant in 2012, the food was marvelous. I keep thinking of the good taste of their food. So this year i come back again. Oh, yes! You never fail me, I really enjoy my dinner here. If you happen to be in Wanaka, don't forget to have a try on their cooking, they are really good.

We definitely ate too much but had such a good meal. The Nann breads were delicious. The curry was nice and hot. Thank you Bombay palace staff. Great... More

We were in the mood for a curry but very disappointed by this restaurant. We ordered a spicy Chicken Jalfrazee, Chicken Kofma and a plain naan. The Jalfrazee had no spice and minimal flavour while the Korma tasted of butter, cream and cardamom. We had the Korma changed for the Chicken Saag but that was no better. Would not recommend...

We were here @ Wanaka on Sunday. The town is very quiet and most of the shops were closed. Hardly seen any restaurant open. We were attracted by the aromatic curry smell yet we decided to eat some spicy curry in this cold evening. The restaurant is simple yet warm ambient. Greet by a friendly indian waiter. He is very...
