If you're looking for a curry in Taupo then this is the place. If you're an international curry aficionado then you won't give it five stars, but they do a pretty good job of rustling up a decent meal. I went for the tandoori Chicken, which was tasty and plentiful. The chicken could have been a little more tender, but... More

Though we had been given a recommendation across the street, we gave this place a try because of their extensive veg menu. It was empty, but we ordered a full dinner with appetizer, papadum and a couple of beers. We were pleasantly surprised by how flavorful and good quality every dish was. Wonderful lamb biryani and naan. Highly recommended!

All our meals and the service was excellent. Reason why we called in was it looked nice and busy, so we gave it a try and it was 100%. Absolutely delicious butter chicken and the beef madras . The wine list was well picked and the prices were reasonable.

We had a Curry combo for lunch with lamb and chicken, including Naan. A little spicy, but tasty. And the naan (flatbread) is the best !!!

Wow...amazing food and excellent service. Wish we had this place in my hometown! We went around 5:30 and only 1 other couple in there but at least 6 take out orders came in. Maybe these regulars haven't rated the place...I have no idea why it wouldn't be higher on the list. Had the butter chicken and tikka masala with rice... More

When we went to Taupo, it was cold, wet and we were hungry! Indian sounded so good. We randomly stumbled upon this establishment. The portions were just perfect and the food delicious! I had chicken tiki masala.
