We visited Arranged Marriage based on TripAdvisor reports. Although we enjoyed our meal, it didn't quite come up to the standards of other Indian restaurants we have tried. If you are looking for the usual NZ portions this is definitely not the restaurant for you...More

Visited for dinner and thoroughly enjoyed the delicious authentic food. Went back the next day for a dosa for lunch which was equally as good. Service was excellent and we will return next time we are back in Palmy.

It was an elaborate South Indian menu. Authentic taste particularly of the kerala dishes, Fish masala, kerala paratha, chicken 65, Fish moilee and the kerala beef dishes were real stand outs.
