Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is our local which we have dined at many times and had takeaways from. Unfortunately for the second time now, we have received food that is off. The first time was rice, off in smell and texture. They were very apologetic when we contacted...them about it and reimbursed us. We didn’t think much of it and time has passed with us continuing to dine here, since then we have enjoyed all our meals. We decided to get takeaway a few weeks back which included a main, nann and mixed platter. We ate most of the meal and it wasn’t until we tried the Murg Malai tikka from our mixed platter that we were unpleasantly surprised. The chicken tasted so off that it caused us to spit it out, we then smelt the chicken which was beyond fresh. We contacted them again and the assured us it was fresh, it 100% wasn’t! I have never smelt something so off in my life. They offered a $50 voucher to which we never received. We won’t be risking our health to dine here again nor recommend it to others. A shame as supporting local is important I think.More

Went for dinner recently and the meals were superb. Also my wife is garlic intolerant and the extra effort put in by the owner and staff was way above and beyond. Prices were also excellent value for money. Highly recommended.

This place is a real Gem, fantastic service, great food, totally recomend. Not a lot to choose from if you want something that isn't classic NZ food in this rural backwater but Indian Hut is well worth a go.

Really good quality Indian food and good value. Came here with my wife. She had a veggie curry and I had lamb Rogan Josh from the lunch menu offer. Both were very tasty. Just worth noting that the curry on the lunch menu offer is...significantly smaller than that off the main menu, not sure it’s as good value as it seemed initially. Only really complaining though because it was so tasty!More

Superb Service, Superb Food. Recommended. We dropped in to order takeaways, and felt so welcomed we had a glass of Vino while we waited. We were even served water and treated like special evening diners while we waited. The food was delicious, which was a...bonus, as the overall experience was above and beyond. Thanks Indian Hut!More

Thank you for the wonderful meals my husband and I enjoyed tonight. The butter chicken and beef rogan josh were plentiful and full of flavour. The restaurant is beautifully presented with friendly and efficient staff. We will call again when we next pass through

We were passing through Oxford on route to Christchurch recently and as we were needing something to eat decided to stop of at the Indian hut resturant . This was unusual for us as we don’t often eat Indian food .Very glad we did as...we were delighted with the service from the owner and the young waitress who served us . But above all the food was first class . My wife wasn’t sure what dishes would suit her as she is vegetarian but the owner took time to explain what might be best and with this advice she chose a vegan mowgli . She was very happy she did and thoroughly enjoyed it . I had a chicken dish which was excellent also. With an ample bowl of rice to complement dishes our appetites were satisfied . Unfortunately for us we can’t return to Oxford as we are heading back home after our holiday but for anyone who is in the Oxford area through travel or otherwise this resturant is well worth a visitMore

My Indian wife and I have dined at Indian Hut several times as an important part of a day away from Christchurch hiking/walking in the great bush walks of the area. The small town of Oxford is indeed fortunate to have this restaurant. I concur...with other reviewers and their spot on comments. The food is faultless every time. Service is friendly and pleasant environment inside with choice of seating and views. We are lunch diners. The value for money is fantastic and the lunch menu offers many options. We have tried chicken tikka masala, korma, madras, vindaloo, and mango chicken, all were memorable.The mango lassi is a must and is heavenly. An amazing gem in the heart of a country town where the curries are just so consistently good. Well done. We hope many more diners will give Indian Hut a try. The waiter told us they had a full house on a recent Saturday evening. Great news. You deserve it. Over the coming summer we will head that way more often and lunch visits at Indian Hut are definite. We sincerely recommend this restaurant.More

A welcome change to the average cuisine Oxford has to offer. We have eaten here a few times and it never disappoints. The portions are generous, price is reasonable, the people are so friendly and welcoming and we can't fault it. Hopefully other locals like...us will continue to support this wonderful small business and visitors will find it rather than heading to the very average pie shop next door.More
