This place has got everything you expect from an Indian restaurant - harsh lighting, gaudy colour scheme, cheap furniture, a beer list exclusively featuring bland lagers, supermarket wines (obviously sourced from one wine rep), and those pathetic little wine glasses that are an unfortunate but... read more

Two curries + extra serving of basmati rice + roti + samosas all for under $50 and made in about 15min (during busy dinner time). Excellent service and just feels good to support a family run establishment. Highly recommend the lamb korma + plain roti (one serve of roti is more than enough for 2 people). I can imagine the...

As an added bonus at Bombay Palace, the... More

We first ate here about 6 years ago on holiday in Wanaka and loved it. My wife is Sabahan Malaysian and bit of an expert on spicy food so her compliments are hard to prise from her, but, she is a big fan! Not that you have to have spicy, spicy... The food is delicious. We visited again a week... More

Delicious Indian food- had a fantastic Saag Aloo and Onion Bhajis. The lone waiter/chef was very accommodating of vegan dietary requirements.

We often go here for a meal especially at the end of the working week when the fridge is low of food and cant be bothered shopping. The owner always remembers our faces and greets us with a smile and gives us such great service, not only this, he also remembers our preferred meals. I have to say I am... More

We have been to Bombay Kitchen three times now and have always enjoyed it Ive been to India twice and Sri Lanka five times and I can tell you the food is as good if not better, due the good quality/freshness of the produce,than you will get in India. The service was good and the food came out promptly and... More

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!!
