Best Indian we have had in NZ. Consistently excellent food and service. Greeted with a friendly smile every time. Tanka makes the best recommendations for dishes... . even if they aren't on the menu. Do not go anywhere else in Taupo

Excellent curries - all choices were dairy free as my partner and I are vegan. We had aloo saag, and one which had mushroom and eggplant (but I've forgotten the name)! Very attentive service, and authentic decor. I wish I had this place at home!
