“Delicious Indian food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2011

I don't often crave Indian food - but after eating at India Today, I will start. We ordered the tandoori chicken for our entrée, and butter prawns and beef vindaloo for our mains, with a side of basmati rice and roti. The tandoori was so full of flavour, and perfectly balanced out with onions and the yogurt mint sauce it came with. The chicken was incredibly juicy. The butter prawns were lovely, and the beef vindaloo had a great blend of spices. And, the beef was so tender. Even the rice was so fluffy.
Service at the restaurant was also great. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful with explaining the menu.
This place is a must visit!

“Awesome food, staff and atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2011

You know that a restaurant is good when it always has people dining in it. This is one of the nicest Indian restaurants that I have been to. Food is fantastic, staff are always friendly and polite and the atmosphere just right. Don't miss it if you are in town.

“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.
