4 of us dined here. Had Naan bread (plain and cheese & garlic) flavorsome and crispy. Mains were chicken mushrooms, beef Vandalia, prawn masala and beef Rogan Josh. Without exception we were seriously impressed. Jim

On our first night in Tauranga, we visited here for dinner, and expected the usual Indian fare. We were pleasantly surprised to see items on the menu we hadn't seen before. The Chicken Labradab had a great flavour. Dishes are mostly Northern Indian. Portion sizes...were very good. Service was also good and dinner was value for money. Definitely worth a visit.More

My self and my wife visit here about every 2 weeks to get our "curry fix" I must say in my opinion that this establishment serves the best curry in Tauranga. Prices are not cheap, but I am a believer in you get what you...pay for. I would recommend a vist here.More

Sometimes I wonder if two diners should share a lunchtime curry, owing to the size of the portions at some restaurants. However, at India today, the curries come in just the right size to provide a full stomach, without the waste. Try the dal makhani;...it's great. The cheese and garlic naan is super-heavy on the garlic though so watch out.More

I haven’t dined in the restaurant but have had it delivered to my house. Every single time, and there is probably half a dozen, I have had a good experience. You can taste the fact they cook from scratch. No saving and reheating. So I...can say if it gets delivered to my house and I’m all good, dining in must be sooo good!More

Of all the poor aspects of our experience in this restaurant, perhaps the service was the worst. The waiting staff appeared to be young girls of school age - probably relatives of the proprietor - who had absolutely zero waiting skills. When asked about a...particular dish, our waitress replied "I know nothing about the kitchen". We were not offered a drink on arrival. The bill took ages to come. The meal took 45 minutes to arrive and that was only after we complained. All the girls could do was to utter " any Naan bread, any Naan bread?" to every customer (we could hear this mantra being repeated at all nearby tables). Obviously the only training was to ensure the girls sold Naans. Actually we ordered a Naan, and when it arrived it looked as if it had died of malnutrition - see photo attached. It was more like an elongated chapathi - flat, lifeless and tasteless. The food was poor. A "Pappadum Platter" consisted of 4 saucer-sized, stale mini-pappadums with 3 dessert-spoon sized helpings of sambal - an over-priced, underwhelming offering. The curries were swimming in sauce with very little substantial content. Plates were cold, food tepid. Not recommended. One of the worst Indian restuarants we have ever visited.More
