“Will travel from Auckland for this restaurant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2013

Beautifully and authentically decorated, wonderful service and most importantly: the best curry I've had in a long time. We went here on a whim and were not disappointed!

There seemed to be a lot of reservations (we got the last free table at about six) so would recommend booking. They do takeout but dine in to get the full experience!

“Friendly service, impressive decor”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2013

Doesn't look like much from outside but inside its beautifully decorated, friendly service and great food. Best of all its BYO as well so makes its a reasonably priced dinner out.

“3yrs searching for an amazing Indian curry in NZ have ended!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2013

Left the UK in 2010 having travelled through Asia, Australia and stopped in NZ our second trip to Taupo. No matter where we go we try out the local curry house this did not disappoint, reminded us of the the curry mile in Manchester, England. Staff are super friendly and the food was amazing not huge portions but enough to leave you full.

Very authentic flavours, we had a prawn balti special and lamb saag.

We will most definitely be back the next time we are in Taupo.

You have to visit!!
