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.

The food was excellent and so was the service. I had Butter Chicken with Cheese & Garlic Naan which was awesome. My wife had a Meat Sizzler over greens (gluten-free) which was also very good. They were very conscientious about gluten allergies. The price are...reasonable. The restaurant has a vey nice ambiance and a cozy bar.More

Enjoyed everything about my dining experience at India Today from the moment we got to the front door. The decor is beautiful, all staff were welcoming and attentive and the food was delicious! The owner, Sunny, also happened to be there and like his staff,...he was very hospitable - awesome to see him take the time to check in with his guests. Great service all round 😊More

Wow! They've moved next door to where they used to be but man, did they take the opportunity to ramp up their prices! What normally used to cost us $130-140 came to over $233 - and that was just a cheap shared starter and 4...mains with 2 beers and 2 cokes. Yes, it's good quality food but the portions are on the small side. Just for good measure, the service also appears to have got worse and was very slow (nearly an hour). We've enjoyed your cuisine over the years; thank you for all the good memories but sorry, this is where we part ways...More

The place was busy when we arrived with a busy bar and a full restaurant. Great environment and welcoming and the smells were delicious. There was a long wait. However it was worth the wait, the food was delicious, spicy, fragrant and plentiful. The service...was friendly, despite all the staff being under the pump. Drinks list - wide range of beers to choose from, overall would go again and recommend it to others.More

Good quality food shame about the price and portion size. Rice shouldn’t be $2pp when a curry is $32+

The restaurant was well appointed with enough room between tables to enable privacy. The staff were helpful, efficient and pleasant. The food was excellent and if we were staying in New Plymouth longer we would definitely repeat a very pleasant experience.

From start to finish this was a great experience. The waiting staff were friendly and attentive and always smiling, made us feel like we were welcome. We had a great seat in the window too! The decor is beautiful and the atmosphere was lovely. The...food was show-stopping and so tasty! I had the chicken lababdar and even 2 days later I haven't stopped thinking about how delicious it was!!! Beautiful! My husband had the lamb nawabi and that tasted divine, such beautiful flavours. There are some talented chefs in that kitchen!! The currys we have eaten in New Zealand have been average to say the least (we're from the UK so curry is a regular dish for us!) and this place is a game changer. We will be back and we would be there every week but a 6 hour round trip from Hamilton is a little excessive LOL! Everyone, I highly recommend you dine here, it's the best! Thank you to the team !More

Food was pretty nice but in the more expensive side compared to others. $30 for a curry is steep. Portions were almost enough. Not sure how they justify $8 for a soft drink.

Disappointing meal - very oily and lacking taste. Helpings quite small for price and menu quite restricted in choices. Staff is very pleasant and surroundings nice but let down by food
