Great Indian food, glad I saw it in Blenheim. Good ambiance and service. Samoas were great and dishes were actually spicy (unlike many things in NZ), excellent naan also.

Definitely try it out if you want Indian.

Three of us visited Village India - we had heard good reports. We ordered a selection of dishes, all vegetarian. They come mildly spiced but you can ask for medium or hot and they will make to your taste. As one Kiwi and two Brits, we all agreed it was one of the best Indian restaurant meals we had had. The waiter was attentive and helpful and we had an excellent experience. This restaurant does BYO.

Just came back from dinner at Village India we had a selection of meals all with different spicy flavours, butter chicken was creamy and with a rich tomato buttery sauce. Lamb Passanda and beef Korma equally as delicious the garlic nann bread was light and crispy. All meals were served nice and hot and the staff were very pleasant and friendly.
Would recommend and will be visiting again soon!

Tired decor, staff who could not understand us due to being British. The food was average at best, I like a curry that contains fresh spices and vegetables which this did not.

Hi there,
It was great to hear you,
Yes it was old decor,
There is no question of not understanding British English,My staff and myself spoken you to for more than 10 minutes with you at the table, and it was great experience....
and when we served you the dinner you said it was great and nice to have huge menu to support all kinds of palate,
We at Village India serves the fresh grounded spices and you haven't looked at the vegetable side of the menu, its large menu with separate vegetable section on the next page,,
still anyway Thank you for your visit,
Thank you

Went there for dinner after reading the reviews. So sorry I did .Ordered 1 whole tandoori chicken. So sorry for the chicken's in NZ they only come with one leg ,not something you count but Hubby and I love the leg portion of the chicken, told the Waiter he did come back with the other parts of the chicken ,told us some story about missing the pot , Other dishes were average, tandoori mushroom not even cooked hard as and cold .Would never go back .Save your money Offered no discount or visit from chief we are from Aussie, if that happened there different story ,most of the restaurant there you would have been offered a discount or visit from the manager.if this didn't happen in Aus I would be surprised.
We didn't even see the Waiter as we left.Waste of money
