We dined here last minute while on holiday over the long weekend. Although the restaurant were clearly very busy they went out of their way to accommodate us. The meal was delicious and the service impeccable. Our waiter had a great sense of humour as...did the cashier. Would absolutely recommend.More

My 11 year old desperately wanted Indian on our recent trip to Rotorua...and we were not disappointed. We got take out and the staff were friendly and fun while we waited for it to be cooked. The food was delicious...the Naan enormous...and everyone's belly was...satisfied.More

I had decided to have Indian for my 60th birthday get together- the food was amazing - Ray had everything packed up ready to go and made it so easy. Everyone said it was such a good idea to have Indian and the three dishes...we had were stunning. People were saying it’s the best butter chicken they have ever had. Thanks Ray for making everything so easy 👍xMore

Food 10/10 My wife and I headed here for takeout, but decided to dine in. We ordered the banquet, which is a great price for what you get. It lets you try 3 curries, veggies and the naan. Absolutely delicious. There was nothing wrong with...the food. I wish my stomach was bigger so I could of fit more. The staff were pleasant, I didn’t get to chat with any of them till I was paying, no one came to check if the food was alright. They were however getting absolutely flogged with the amount of patrons flowing in and out of the restaurant though, so I understand the pain of the 3 wait staff. If you are in Rotorua for a night, you have to try this Indian restaurant.More

We ordered Indian from here while in Rotorua after seeing some amazing reviews and it certainly didn't disappoint. The curries were nice, thick and creamy and there was lots of chicken through it. Our cheese naans were delicious and cheesy. Would recommend to others :)...also it was a nice bonus having a discount for picking up takeaways when ordering online.More
