“Wonderful meal”
Reviewed April 29, 2012

Went with a group of friends that are always keen to try a new Indian restaurant and we were not disappointed. Generally our group will head out for an Indian meal once a fortnight so know what a good meal is and this was a very good meal. We had five different dishes and all were distinctive in flavour. Would definately return there when next in Taupo. The only downside was that it was very hot inside the restaurant and had to resort to outside tables.

“Best Indian Restaurant we've been to”
Reviewed April 21, 2012

This restaurant came recommended to us by a local Taupo couple. Our table for 2 was booked for our special occasion and ready as promised. Friendly, personal, respectful service. Our meal was fresh, delicious and serving size was very generous. We couldn't eat it all! We highly recommend you try this Restaurant; and we'll be back.

“Excellent meal”
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!”
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.
