“Masala Surprise”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

Generally, the last place we go to look for something to eat is a gas station. Shed that prejudice in Te Anau. Head for the Mobil station (toward the northeast side of the Town Centre), and get some excellent Indian takeaway (take-out). Very friendly owners (from southern Kerala) are very helpful. One of the two best Indian places we found in New Zealand, and certainly the best value as well as the as most unexpected location.

Incidentally, if you are in Te Anau for a while, I think they have a loyalty program!

I had trouble rating "atmosphere" below ... obviously this is not a place with gold tableware and tasteful pictures of the Taj on the walls, but anyone who familiar with Indian dhabas knows the best food is usually in quite improbable places (by "western" standards) ...

“Unbeatable, delicious, amazing!”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

This review is on behalf of my parents who since their return from New Zealand last week have not stopped talking about how absolutely amazing the food and service at SolGeo's Indian Takeaway was! My dad, being very picky about Indian food, has never raved THIS much about the food and how absolutely delicious it was! A definite MUST for people visiting that area. If you're visiting Milford Sound, definitely stop for this equisite food along the way - in my parent's words "unforgettable".

“Yummy”
Reviewed March 19, 2014

Just had a wonderful take away dinner. It is a take away so it would be pre cooked, no issues with that..but it was made sure a little more spices were added as per our Indian taste.

Wonderful person too.

“Mmmm”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

I had dinner here a few nights ago and really enjoyed it! The food tasted great, the portions are good for their value, and the staff were incredibly nice! The lady who served me suggested I try an "aroti" (not sure if that's spelled correctly...it's kind of like naan bread but better in my opinion!) and it was so good that I had to come back for a second one. I will definitely be coming back before I leave Te Anau and I recommend this place to everyone.
