“Marvellous Indian restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2011

We aren't visitors to New Plymouth - we live here. The only place to go for an indian meal is India Today, Devon Street. My family who live in Auckland, always insist on a visit to this restaurant when they come and stay. The restaurant is always busy - make sure to book. Last time my partner and I wanted to go on a Saturday night, we couldn't get a booking. Very good value, and a nice night out.

“Superb - well worth the visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2011

Well above average standard of food, service and ambience. Throroughly recommended for intimate dinners, a few friends or the full team. Good selection of beer and wine. What more can I say? Give it a go if you like indian food.

“Great Indian ambience, excellent service, delicious food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2010

The setting was exceptionally pleasant, with beautiful romantic decor, including a draped ceiling, subdued lighting, low Indian background music, beautiful tables and chairs. The service was friendly and attentive and, best of all, we had a really delicious dinner. We had garlic naan ($4), raita ($2.50), pulaw rice ($7), egg plant subzi ($17), and lamb nawabi ($17). Everything was delicious. We ordered medium heat and it was just right for us. With Indian beer, it made a great dinner. We love Indian food and we were not disappointed.
