Had lunch here. Good food neatly presented, great tastes and very reasonably priced. Service attentive without hovering, and the place is clean as a whistle (especially what we could see of the kitchen which is always a good sight). Hope to return soon.

Visited The Next Door Cafe again today 3rd January with 4 friends. Excellent service and food. Real ale on tap. We are very pleased to have TNDC on our doorstep. In our view, this is now the best Indian restaurant in Blenheim. Thank you TNDC.

Tasty Indian food, wait staff who actually serve and seem pleased to see you, enough food to take some home at the end of the meal. Really nice new place in Redwoodtown (we got a park right outside), a responsive and 'on to it' business.

Unobtrusive helpful wait staff. Nice clean restaurant, and exceptionally delicious meals. This restaurant only opened a month ago, and they have really hit the ground running. It is obvious the proprietors are experienced restaurant owners as the food and service is really excellent. We have...More
