Family friendly, great service and superb food. Great value. One of the best! Highly recommended. The place was authentically decorated and although it was a larger restaurant, it was still a quiet setting. Food came quickly and service staff were attentive.

We did a “walk in” early evening meal last week. We were welcomed warmly and seated promptly. The food was so delicious, piping hot and well presented. This is a top restaurant and we are so lucky to have it in Taupo.

Visited Taupo staying one night. On reviewing Trip Advisor the "Master of India" had great feedback. We were not disappointed. Friendly service with recommendations on menu. I decided on the goat and my sister chicken Saagwala, with stuffed parantha. OMG. Amazing.

Service is friendly yet efficient. They make you feel welcome. Original Indian good, nicely plated. They do, fortunately, not serve a hot butter chicken, but do however leave room for individual wishes for spiciness. I cannot find anything that could be improved. Limited outdoor seating
