Stopped here with family (3 adults, 2 teenagers), and everyone enjoyed our meal! We ordered plates to eat family-share style, ordering one entre less than people at the table, two orders of naan, and two orders of saffron rise. It ended up being plenty of tasty food with a delicious variety of curry flavors. Yum!!

Come here about once per week... best authentic Indian in town! Our ridiculously specific spiciness-level requests are always noted with a smile and executed perfectly.

This place makes the best Indian Curry in town(Lamb Jalfreezie and Palak Paneer are our favorite) our place to get takeaway once a week, but eating there is even better! Fast friendly service and the biggest most garlicky Naan Breads, Yum!

Great food, good service, quick and reasonably priced. Very friendly staff with a nice informal family-run feel. Best naan breads ever too!

We've been living in Wanaka for a few months and have tried many of the restaurants here and all over the South Island. We keep coming back to Bombay Palace, as it's been our favorite! Great, authentic food and very attentive service. Highly recommend if you're in Wanaka!

Not VERY good but way better than average. First time I've been here...takeaway for tea! Tasty and lots of it. Not too expensive, and surprisingly delicious . Recommend for a cheaper take away in Wanaka. All curries are Gluten Free and some of the entrees.

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.
