We visited the Bombay on the recommendation of our Hotel owners and the experience did not disappoint. We had the Kadhai Beef and Rogan Josh which were both flavoursome and well presented.

Lots of choice for vegetarians, each dish has a different flavour. Medium hot means medium hot which was great, usually it's still mild in NZ when you ask for medium hot. The naan is really good. Staff are very friendly and the kids loved watching the Bollywood dancers on the plasma tv screen.

When unpacked there was no curry sauce - possibly just as well given the huge portion sizes - and the only difference between the two dishes was some scrag end bits of chicken in one plus the odd lump of tofu. Vegetables were there but not exactly... More

We really enjoyed the authentic Indian cuisine on the shores of Lake Wanaka. Dishes prepared behind viewing are. Authentic Tandoor. Distinct flavors in every dish indicate made from scratch recipes and not just Patak jars. Give it a try, you'll like it.

Its very quaint inside, not many tables but does have a nice window to the kitchen so you can see the chefs at work. We ordered a variety... More

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.
