“Very surprised this was only at 8th position...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

We went to grab some Indian and did not expect much, being in a small town - boy were we surprised! This was one of the best Indian meals I have had - anywhere. We asked for Hot and it came that way and the rice was cooked as well as if not better than we would do at home. (I have an asian wife).
We had the entree sample for two and each piece was spiced and cooked as it ought to have been. The main dish was perfect...and the deserts...Mmm...
"Simply Indian" food cooked perfectly.
To top off what was a wonderful experience the whole meal wasn't expensive either!
Highly recommended!

“Good food...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

I like Indian food and this was my first visit to a NZ Indian restaurant. The menu was good with the usual choices and it was clean.
Service was okay and my food was tasty with good flavours and the Naan bread was as it should be. I would visit again if I was in town and it was good value for money.

“Good Indian with wide range of options”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

Good service, very kind waiter. Quite delicate food, the mild dishes were actually mild. Dine in and take away with a wide range of dishes, not just the usual ones.

“Always excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

We have been going to Simply Indian ever since it opened. Consistently good curries - don't understand the reviewer who called them bland, just ask for 'indian hot' and you are guaranteed a spicy treat. Keep up the great work Raj.

“Food OK, Service OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

This is a basic Indian restaurant, as stated in the name of the restaurant. The food is OK but a bit bland. The service was very slow on the night we went (Saturday) because it's so busy with takeaways too but as long as you order an entree to keep yourself occupied it should be fine. Not the best but it's fine for an Indian in the middle of nowhere.
