“Excellent meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2012

Really nice atmosphere, very helpful staff, and delicious food, served hot, and nicely spicy. There was a table of four men nearby who seemed to have had a fair bit to drink and started to give the waiters a bit of a hard-time and wanted to go out to the kitchen to "tell the chefs how to cook their meals". It was all handled very diplomatically and quietly. Well done the staff. We couldn't finish our meals so were given the left-overs to take away - and the food was even better the following night.

“Yum!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2012

We dine here generally whenever we are staying in or passing through Taupo. If you love Indian food this is a great restaurant. It is a BYO so we normally take a bottle with us.

Service is great, very prompt and the waiting time for meals is very short.
