Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

What a lovely place to visit! We chose to eat here because we were going to a movie and knew everyone would enjoy the lovely flavours of the authentic Indian cuisine. We were not disappointed! We service was personal and professional - food arrived quickly,...and such delicious flavours!! Talk of India now has space to park, it’s clean, offers space to dine inside or outside, and they’re able to cater for large or small groups. We highly recommend!! Thank you Pradeep and the team.

Fabulous food. Very good menu with different offerings to the standard Indian fare. Excellent service too. This restaurant has been hit hard by the Cameron Rd road works. I highly recommend them.

This is the birthday girls favorite place. I tried the milk beef curry for a change but butter chicken featured as per usual. Always an amazing dinning experience

Came here for a takeaway after seeing a review for “best butter chicken in NZ”. Unfortunately I do not agree. It tasted like tomato soup and the chicken was tough and we found a few bones. The chicken biryani lacked flavour and was pretty unappetising....Also the garlic and cheese naan wasn’t cheesy at all. So sorry to write a rough review like this and I realise it’s a Sunday night and not that busy but they really need to up their game 😞More

What a wonderful restaurant with exceptional owner and staff.. Owner of 30 years plus Predeep spent considerable time at our table telling us about his dishes and their origins which was extremely interesting. The five of us had a variety of dishes after sharing an...interesting and very tasty entree platter which was fantastic and accompanied by numerous sauces and 'gravy's' at no extra cost. Highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys authentic indian cuisine.More

Talk of India is by far the best Indian restaurant in Tauranga. The food never disappoints with the flavours & chunks of meat! Pradeep and the girls offer great friendly service. They always make our grandchildren feel so special. Great value for money. Highly recommended....We travel from Omokoroa even to get a take away. Love the complimentary bottle of beer you receive with your order! Pradeep always puts a bottle of port on the table to have a night cap to finish your evening. Simply The BEST.More

Absolutely surprised at massive increase in prices not only meals but corkage now $10 which is very high for a local restaurant. Would'nt mind paying $25.50 for a butter chicken ( up well over 20%) if you got a decent portion. Compared with the same...takeaway it looks about half that provided in the restaurant. Highly likely we wont be going back to restaurant , takeaways only. Understand that costs have gone up but such a massive change in price and minimised serving is disappointingMore

Have been to Talk of India so many times. The food is great, Pradeep and staff are so welcoming and friendly. Prices are very reasonable. Great for takeaways as well as dining in. Good menu with plenty of beef/chicken/lamb/fish or vegetarian dishes. Parking is easy...- even with the current roadworks - you can park in the avenues either side of the restaurant and walk a few extra metres.More
