Delicious food with a menu that stretches beyond the New Zealand standards. Not much seating area or ambience, but the quality of the food and the friendly staff more than makes up for it. Great place to grab a takeaway if you don't want to...sit in.More

What a great experience to sit down and have a meal here - brilliant, friendly attentive staff was really what made dinner a delight. Food was fast and great (although a little sweet for our palettes), but this didn’t at all detract from a pleasant...outing. Well done Star of India!!More
