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.

Tasty food. Reasonable prices. Ambiance is a little lacking (upstairs from the Vets club). Service was fine. Most dishes (except Naan) labeled as gluten free - thanks we appreciate labeling allergens. Would go again.

So delicious!! We had saag chicken and fish Marsala with cheesy naan and wine and beer. Such a tasty meal. We wished we could haul a load of people in as it’s really a hidden gem. Definitely give it a try if you’re up in...Paihia. It’s inside the RSA. Wonderful!!More

We went here as we were staying quite close and thought the club and restaurant would be ok. When entering the club, we doubled the crowd so were a little reticent. Club was quaint with some processes that we aren’t familiar with, but quite welcoming...and pleasant service. After a drink in the club bar, we ventured upstairs to the restaurant. Small crowd here. Very pleasant welcome and service. Ordered 4 meals plus naan. Very generous servings and we all agreed the quality was very good and the equal of anything we have experienced anywhere else. We ate well and took home probably half of what we were served. Cost about $25 per head which was great value. Very good service. Highly recommend.More

This excellent restaurant is worth seeking out as it’s tucked away inside the Paihia RSA and not obvious to the average tourist. So pleased the excellent reviews brought it to our attention. The menu was extensive, the food was delicious and the portions were generous....Reasonable prices, pleasant atmosphere and excellent service. Thoroughly recommend visiting.More

5 Mates Indian Dinner, not a spicy food eater, I ordered a Butter Chicken and garlic naan bread, a 6 inch bowl of sauce with 6 bits of chicken was set down after a while a plate of communal rice was placed down, bulked out...the chicken meal with it and consumed, no naan bread yet. Others were served their meals got their bread then we got ours to late. Protein was rather lacking and the meal was bulked out with rice and naan bread. the others enjoyed their meals except one who overstretched himself on the hot food. Once is enough, Madley is attached to the Paiihia Club with RSA members. Nice little club, raffles, billiard and pool tables worth a visit. Madly Indian does food for those who do not like it hot also.More

Have been to Madly Indian about once a month since they have opened and have tried several meals on the menu. Absolutely love their food. The staff is lovely. My absolute favorite is their Butter Chicken Curry. I could swim in that stuff. Have also...recently ordered takeaway and they delivered it to my doorstep and there was so much rice it was a dream. Food was lovely. I love this place. It's so worth the money.More
