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.

Ordered an online takeout as a Saturday night treat. Arrived at said time and no one was there to greet us so we took the bag left on the counter - called out to no avail. When we got it home we found that the...popadoms were small and partly raw - straight from a packet?! The naan bread was sweet and unpleasant. The methi murg was insipid, with very little actual curry was mostly cream and spices We didn’t finish it. We still have it if the company would like to see it!? Then I was violently ill during the night. Service didn’t exist And the food was unbelievably bad especially as it gave me food poisoning . Do not eat from here!More

We all ordered different dishes, and all were excellent. Great flavours, good quality ingredients, perfect portion sizes, good service. Particularly loved the palak prawn dish - best ever!

Yummy food experience, great service and a nicely appointed restaurant. All the dishes we had were very tasty, and the naan bread was top notch.

This restaurant is amazing. The service was very fast & the food was the best most of our group have ever eaten.. During our short wait for food they gave us a complimentary fritter which was a nice gesture. I can recommend the mixed platter...for 2 & the masala dosa. The butter chicken was brilliant. Staff were all very friendly & helpful.. I would totally recommend having a meal at Bollywood Napier - you wont regret it.More

I went to this restaurant yesterday with my family. We all had an amazing time. The tasting menu was delicious and the staff so attentive and friendly. The gentleman who was front of house was a very jolly character and made the dining experience more...enjoyable. I just wanted to say thank you! It's not all the time people get praised, the quality of the service and food was excellent. It's nice to know there are such places local to us. NOTE: Reply to last Review (Mobile26592582800) person. I am strongly disagree with your comment because this place is well organised and filled with experienced staff members. YES, You should go to some other places where you will get “free” food as it’s clearly seen from your unprofessional Comment. I will STRONGLY RECOMMEND to EVERYONE about this place because our Community needs these kind of people who will looking after our family and friends. We will definitely be coming again! Many thanks again Team 👍More

Made a takeaway order over the phone for dinner The curry (kadai paneer) was very hot where as we ordered it be medium spice Called them and told them the issue The person over the phone(Rahul) said that the kitchen is closed down for now...and can’t do anything consume the same curry that they gave us and you can get the other one from us for free tomorrow when the restaurant opens up back Didn’t it that because it was too spicy and had to throw that up they ruined our dinner We were there regular customers Gave them a call on afternoon next day and ordered them nann bread and asked them tor the replacement of the curry and the fellow over the refused that and said they never admitted to give the free curry The restaurant is near to my workplace And was my first choice for the food It’s not about the free curry or I can’t pay for the other it’s all about how you solve your loyal customers problem and commitment you made and then you deny that was never made . Never going there again ever And will let other people in my circle to not to go there and order from them There are heaps of other better options in the city to go with .More

Another fantastic meal and the best Indian food I have experienced in Hawkes Bay (and probably NZ). The Xacuti chicken was amazing (a Goan curry), as was the chicken Cafreal, Saag prawn and Karahi chicken... 10/10! The restaurant is spacious, the staff are very welcoming...and knowledgeable about all the dishes. Having been to many, many Indian restaurants around the World (UK, Europe, US, Aussie and NZ) I cannot recommend this place enough!More
