We picked up dinner from SolGeo's to take back to our hotel and loved it! Solly and George were very friendly. Entrees are reasonably priced and the quantity and quality of the food is excellent. This is a unique and much needed dining option in Te Anau!

Solgeo seems to be a very popular indian takeaway at te anau.I did not order the usual dinner fare,which must have been good considering he was all out of it by 9 pm. However,I must mention that if the couple can make such fluffy yummy dhoklas ,they DO know how to cook. The place is run from a petrol pump point but hygiene standards seem to be very well maintained. They do have a varied interesting menu beyond the usual curries.
Don't give it a miss when you are in te anau.
just get there early

We stayed in Te Anau for a night on our drive from Q-Town to Milford and were looking for Indian food joints. We checked at the reception of the hotel where we stayed and they pointed us to Solgeo's Indian Takeaway at the Mobil Gas station. We went there to tank up in the morning to stock up provisions at the departmental store, met the couple George and Solly who runs it, ordered rice, vegetable curries and Dal Makhni for the dinner as we would be back by 7 PM. They called us around 6 PM to say it was ready, we had one of the most yummy foods in NZ that night at our hotel Luxmore, was one of the best ones in our 21 day tour. We immediately rang them up for the next day's breakfast as we were driving to Invercargill and wanted more of the tasty food.

Next day morning, they nicely packed up Boiled Eggs, Uppmas and Vadas, Chutney, onions and sauce to go with it, that smelled soooooooo good! We were forced to open up the breakfast pack early around Lumsden, the aroma was filling the car up and opening up gastric taps! The SolGeo breakfast was one of the beast open-air ones we had in a while on the long winding end-to-end drive and were raring for Indian taste. If we compare to Auckland, Q-Town, Duneden which were all proper pricey restaurants, this was a big value for money, though a take away. We rate this high in terms of taste, speed of service, personalization, reachable and touch-ability (we could shake hands with both the owners across the counter) :) .

The taste was authentic Indian, we ordered medium spicy, they titrated it to medium, I am sure they would make it the way you want. The food was clean, tasty, the couple were very friendly, the price OK for NZ standards and a find for Indian tourist looking for homely taste. Though they do not offer sit-down service as the takeaway is inside a departmental store, it's surely worth a try for anyone looking a change. We have told many friends traveling to NZ since then about the place, one couple went there in February, were happy we pointed them to the right place.
