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.

I cannot recommend them enough. So full of flavour. Large portions. Cures a hangover instantly. Fair priced. Butter chicken is the best I’ve ever had. Can’t fault Indian Indulgence

This is still our favourite place to get a mild curry and garlic naan. The food is consistently excellent. The portions generous and it’s always on time for takeaways and brought to the table quickly when dining in. Staff are always polite and professional.

Hi just want to say that your medium butter chicken curry was delicious I'm not a fan of spicy food but I just had to have a taste of my partners cause how nice it smelt. It was absolutely amazing. I went to Carl's Jr...and ohh boy did I regret it. Will definitely be back some day soon.More

Really tasty Indian food. We had chicken kadai and two vegetable dishes and parantha. All delicious with nice spicing and well cooked. Just staying in Palmerston North overnight and looking for a good curry. Certainly happy with our choice. Recommended.

Best Indian Restaurant in Palmerston North. The menu is comprehensive and inviting. There are also a great selection of drinks including beers which is not usual for an Indian Restaurant. Staff were helpful in assisting me to choose a beer to my taste. The food...was well presented and delicious. If I were to be critical, their home-made ice cream is extremely icy and more like a 'thick' sorbet. Regardless, I shall dine there again next week.More

Great food and dinner specials on Sunday to Tuesday nights make it the best value in Palmerston North. All the curries are characterful - special favourites include the Kadai, Saag, Madras and Vindaloo. The garlic Naan may be the best in New Zealand - light...and fluffy. We eat here regularly and many friends have joined us - both for lunches and dinners.More

It was by chance that we picked Indian Indulgence on 13 March. There are a few Indian Restaurants around the area to choose from, we went to Marriage... but waited to be seated, only one person served n seated, we waited n left. It' competitive...Indian food business in Palmerston North, we have been to a few. At Indian Indulgence they had their normal meals or $10 lunch special or $12 with drinks n naan bread. We took the $10 lunch as they provided nice ice cold water. We called Beef Vindaloo, Lamb Tikka Massala and Butter Chicken.... Medium was good heat. It was an A++++. When we saw the amount that came out we said we aint gonna finish it...chunky n lots of meat...n rice...we wipe all of it clean!! it was so delicious. The guy that served us was polite and always smiling. We were so impressed that we came back to order takeaway for dinner. We found dinner came with rice to..we over ordered but meat quantity is not as much if you compare dollar for dollar as you pay full price for dinner.More

The restaurant was clean and the food served was great. Select the level of spiciness and enjoy your selection. The price was reasonable. The curries had just the right amount of spices. Took our lunch also followed with dinner at this restaurant.
