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.

Fantastic food - one of the best curry’s I’ve had not greasy at all - really light and flavourful. They make the spice level to your preference as well and the portion sizes are very large. Good selection of beers and range of vegetarian options...and staff were lovely. Very clean and good value for money. Highly recommended best meal we had in the areaMore

I dont know where to start, i always look at amazing reviews with some scepticism, so make what you will.. I will start with the bad part; charging a total of $7.50 for a portion of mango chutney and raita is nothing short of highway...robbery, i dont know if this is normal in New Zealand, but if it is its a disgrace. The good part, everything else. Attentive staff, great atmosphere and ambiance. Oh and the food, wow, my wife is not really a fan of Indian cuisine but even she was raving about thisMore

My wife and I ate twice here. They were very accommodating of her dietary requirements. Loved the paneer and spinach curry! The dishes overall are authentic and tasty. Will be back if in New Plymouth again!

Service and food were amazing. We had the banquet for 2 $50 and it was more than enough food. The Dahl makhini was amazing.

I had a wonderful experience dining at Arrange Marriage for South Indian Cuisine. The food was truly delicious, and the managing lady, Jass, was not only lovely but also incredibly helpful. Her warm hospitality added to the overall enjoyment of the meal. Highly recommended!

Fabulous food, offering that little bit of something different in Taranaki. Seated near the kitchen was a bonus, getting to see the chefs working. Great name for a restaurant too!

We loved it. Staff were great. The menu was really different than most Indian places, even those places that have South Indian dishes. This really was South India, and some crossover to Malay/Indonesia. Naturally we had to have a Dosa, so we ordered a Masala...Dosa, Kerala Beef (curry sauce not dry), Pepper Lamb, and a Naan that turned out to be much more like Parotta or Roti. Maybe we didn't order what we thought we did, but it didn't matter because it was delicious. Add a can of local beer and we were both satisfied for total cost of only $84.50. On this day lots of people had been around the city going to bars dressed as pirates, because it was close to International Talk Like A Pirate Day. I don't know if it was on purpose, or by coincidence, that the second R in the outside sign for ARRANGED MARRIAGE was not bright, making it AR RANGED MARRIAGE like a pirate saying "AR!". See picture!More

The food was FANTASTIC. I had Banana leaf Pulichata (banana leaf) and Masala Dosa. The preparation was like home-made, with right spices and chillies (we had asked for hot). The service was prompt and the waiter was extremely courteous and helpful in making our selection....We will try Biryani next.More
