I had the best onion bhaji outside India and for sure the best butter chicken in New Zealand! The staff is very polite and thoughtful. It was so good that I came twice the same week!

We went to this restaurant after reading all the great reviews, only to be bitterly disappointed. The curries we ordered were both bland and flavourless, lacking any spice (despite both being hot varieties of curry). The rice was clumpy. Popadoms were small and burnt. They did not have any beers on tap despite offering these in the menu, the waitress... More

Four of us went for a meal .... the place is spotless - the staff are attentive and funny without being pushy ..... but the food was simply devine. Generous serves .... scrumptious in taste ..... if there was a 10 star rating they would get it. Plus great early bird incentives! !!!

The best Indian food we had in Dunedin. They have a TripAdvisor certificate as well. The menu caters for most tastes. The price is very reasonable. We shall come back.

Shahi Tandoor is a standout Indian restaurant. Every time we come through Dunedin, Shahi Tandoor is the place to relax and enjoy good food. They offer a wide range of dishes that are absolutely tantalizing and delicious. Our favorites are the Madras, Vindaloo & Butter chicken. Kuldeep and his wait staff are very welcoming and try to ensure that your... More

I ate here for my third time and it was just as incredible as it was the first and second time. I ordered a chicken afgani (not sure of spelling) and a Kashmiri naan bread and it was delicious. The chicken was very moist and melted in my mouth and the naan was something I've never tried before and it... More

Came here with my partner and the food was wonderful, full of flavour and perfect serving sizes. The staff were very friendly. BUT the only down side was their wording of 'BYO' it said 'Fully & BYO licensed' unsure of what this meant we bought in two beers to have with the meal because we thought it was 'fully bring...

This is the best Indian in Dunedin. I'm pretty certain of that. I've dined here 4-5 times and eat indian food frequently, but have simply stopped going to my old favorite haunts (not because they've done anything wrong,) but the consistency of this place is superior. The Naan breads are top notch. The Onion Bhaji is great and the sauce... More
