We regularly buy takeaways from The Flying Saucer. We have never been disappointed. The flavours are delicious, there is always plenty of meat. I think their Indian food is some of the best I have ever tasted.

Visited on Saturday 17th Sept 2016 and had the best ever Eye Fillet steak followed by a Chocolate fondant dessert. We will definitely be back next time we are in Tauranga.

You'll have to excuse the confused decor that leaves you feeling like you've walked into a sports bar if you want to sample one of this restaurant's delicious curries. It's a quiet place with plenty of parking and a decent mixed menu of both indian...More
