This is the 2nd restaurant we went while we were in Queenstown. We really like the food there. Service is fast and efficient. Ambience is good too. They have quite big space to accommodate many customers.

I'm a gluten free vegetarian eater (which makes it difficult to eat out sometimes!), so I often find myself checking out every Indian food restaurant in towns where I visit. We started out with onion bhajees, which were amazing. I got the paneer labadar, which is similar to a tikka masala type of dish and it was amazing. My husband... More

Nothing palatial about the Tandoori Palace: extremely disappointing Indian offering. My wife and I were lured to the restaurant through seeing a 'Happy Hours' offer where all curries were $14.50 from 5-8pm. Do not be fooled by this - there is a clear compromise on quality. The curries we were served were poor; my wife's chicken mango curry being more... More

Not the least expensive Indian food one can buy and not high end...just passable Average food. Modest servings, average ingredients and music too noisy and over the top to have a decent conversation by. Some dishes very spicey but they let you know. We only tried vegetarian and love our veggies but not many to find here...Got an awful Pinot... More

Work colleagues decided it was curry night and we found Tandoori Palace. We were not disappointed and proper glad we chose to dine here. The tandoori prawns were so good. Great flavours and just enough spice to really give it a nifty kick. Got a mild butter chicken for mains. This wasn't like most "western" style curries. Like the prawns... More

On a tour. Dinner was on our own that night. Hotel mentioned this place. Close by all the action. Had a sidewalk greeter out front offering a special deal. We were going to eat here anyway, but the deal saved us $5 NZD. As good Indian food as we have had and price very reasonable. A welcome break from tour... More

The food is prepared by authentic Indian Chefs of the highest quality. It is all authentic, thee is no cheap attempt at creating look a like dishes like most Indian... More

To share between two we ordered the Vegetarian platter entree and Pankaj Paneer Vegetarian curry. We had also ordered a serve of rice but staff rechecked our order and we found out all curries came with a serve of rice which was nice. We were served by really lovely and attentive staff and food was served quickly and it was... More
