“Keep going back”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

The food here is superb! The atmosphere is lovely and the staff are great. The only negative thing I would say is it can be very noisy when it is full and at some of the tables you feel you are sitting closer to the person at the next table than with the people you are dining with. In saying this, this is a minor thing as the food is so delicious! We keep going back, even for takeaways. It is my favourite Indian restaurant in town!

“What luck !”
Reviewed May 16, 2012

We accidentally came across this restaurant on our first evening in Taupo. We were tired, cold and hungry from being on the road all day and felt like an Indian meal. What luck ! Really beautiful food, a great range, generous sizes. And value for money. The service was absolutely splendid. Thank you Harry ! They went out of their way to make the meal a pleasurable experience. We went back..... Go there !

“Great Indian in Taupo”
Reviewed May 13, 2012

We've looked quite a bit for good places to eat in Taupo, and this definitely fitted that description - and we're pretty fussy about Indian restaurants, given that we're half Indian. High takeaway turnover is always a good sign in a tourist town, as it means locals buy food there, which means they're getting repeat business. Onion bhaji were near perfect, and the curries we had extremely well cooked - and a warning, 'medium' is fairy spicy. Kids menu items maybe a little pricey, but other than that everything - service, food, and surroundings - are great.

“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.
