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.

India Garden has moved to 263 Thames St and merged with Chef's Multi Cuisine. The menu now includes kebabs and some Indo Chinese dishes as well as Indian. We have not eaten there since they moves, but expect the food will continue to be excellent.

The lovely people that run this restaurant are very talented. Their Butter Chicken on Basmati, Kashmiri Naan, and Mango Lassi are delicious.

Thoroughly enjoyed my meal. Visiting the city on a night where every other restaurant was closed, it was a major plus not to resort to takeaway franchises. The service was superb, drinks menu was extensive as was the food menu. My chicken dish was excellent...and I have tried this dish in many Indian restaurants. Thoroughly recommend and thanks for an enjoyable evening.More

What an ideal Indian Restaurant. The only non junk food restaurant open in town Anzac Day Evening. What a find! These folks know how to cook fabulous Indian Fare . The meat in the meal melted in my mouth and the rice was just how...it should be light and free-flowing. And as for the Naan...wow not very often do you experience Naan like this...straight from the cooking onto the plate Delightful understated place which I well recommend. One of the best Indian Meals I've eaten in quite a while.More

It is a very nice authentic Indian food restaurant. I bought my first takeaway here 2 years ago and it was delicious. Now I am back to Oamaru for few days and the meal I got today was delicious like that time. Will be back...again and again.More

Warmly greeted, seated immediately with the menu and my order was taken within a couple of minutes. Curry came out fast and the service was friendly and attentive throughout; I ordered an ‘Indian hot’ Dahl Makhani but like the India Garden in Cromwell the heat...level was way below a hot. More like a medium. Taste was fairly good but not as good as what I’m used to in Christchurch & Dunedin, also slightly higher priced at $17 for a Dahl Makhani (usually $14-$15 in most Indian restaurants I’ve visited).More

I always enjoy the value for money and dependable quality of meals from India Garden. The staff are absolutely lovely. The curries appear to be adapted to suit more conservative provincial tastes, with cream and sugar to appeal to the masses and nothing too hot...unless requested.More
