The service was amazing and the food incredible! We were wanting to try something different and the waiter asked us what we liked and then brought out a selection of curries matching our choices which were absolutely delicious!

Awesome food - chilli chicken and butter chicken are fantastic. Garlic Naan is one of the best I have had - fluffy and never oily. We are regular customers as the food is fantastic.

Awsome food, friendly staff, all around cool restaurant. I am especially a huge fan of the fact they presented the naarn bread to you in a bowl in nicely cut pieces, Rather than giving it you as one big ball small dicked looking soggy mess....Definitely recommend Awsome placeMore

Best Indian in New Zealand. It's an awesome place in Taupo. My butter chicken was cooked perfectly and I highly recommend it.

Last visited here a year ago and had the best Indian meal I’ve had in Nz since emigrating from the uk. This time around I had the chicken dhansak again - and it’s just as good as last time. Lovely hosts and authentic Indian cuisine....Would highly recommend the Dhansak. This dish (chicken cooked with lentils) is common in UK but I haven’t seen it anywhere else in Nz. Well worth coming to Taupo for! Thank you once again to the team at Master of India.More

We ordered the signature dish butter chicken, it was not the usual butter chicken, too sweet and no taste somehow, the lamb dish had a strong flavor of tomato paste, disappointing as it was our first meal in Taupo.

Absolutely fantastic meal. We are originally from the UK and really struggle to find a decent curry in NZ( we've lived here 11 years). This is one of the best curries we've ever had. Also great service.....and it's BYO! If you are ever in Taupo...you must visitMore

Remarkable patience balancing takeaways with table service (including a large family) with minimal wait staff.

I love this place and come here very often. Absolutely delicious food (best butter chicken ever!) and the most lovely, accomodating staff. They are always so welcoming and remember me every time I come in. Couldn't recommend more!
