Going through the door is the start of a wonderful experience. It is very tastefully decorated, the staff are friendly and helpful to meet specific needs and the menu has a wide range of Indian dishes. The meal was excellent and could not be faulted.

Friendly efficient service, food was fresh and great flavours. The naan bread was the best we had, ultra fresh and crispy. This place is consistently good. We had chicken and lamb korma, both delicious.

Great service and some of the best curry we’ve ever eaten. Ordered the chicken curry, malai kofta, lamb masala, chicken korma, garlic naan between four people. All dishes were delicious, especially the chicken korma. Not overly big serving sizes which is nice as there is...More

In Ahuriri overnight for business. Had a hankering for Indian and the reviews looked good for Master of India so I went in to give it a go. Food was quick and delicious. It was mid-week so was always going to quiet. Good service.
