Our family came for a late lunch and at nearly 3 o’clock the restaurant was packed. Terrific service, incredibly friendly and efficient staff. But, the food truly speaks for itself. Delicious, spot on and erupting with flavour, we literally cleaned our copper pots clean.

We enjoyed a take awy meal from Masters of India, the Naan was fantastic the rogan josh was good, spicy and hot. The butter chicken was OK. I don't like a sweet masala mix fort butter chicken. But overall the food was of high quality

The butter chicken and sagwala were amazing! We ordered to go but next time we are in Taupō we’ll be sure to dine in. The premises had so much character with lovely colours and Indian decor.
