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.

We have eaten Indian food often in Australia, and overseas and this little restaurant had by far the freshest, tastiest, we have eaten. The food was cooked after we ordered, the young girl who served us was very respectful and we would really recommend food...from this restaurant.More

Tried a takeaway from here after looking at the existing reviews and photos and was very excited to try the food! We were told it would be ready in 25mins when we ordered on the phone. When we arrived after 25 mins we were told...it would be 5 more mins. 30mins AFTER this we finally got our food. No apology for the delay or anything. When back, we were more than ready to eat, but after our first mouthful we were very dissapointed. There was no flavour to the currys at all and the chicken looked barely edible. We did not enjoy any part of the food and it looks nothing like it does in the pictures they uploaded. All the food comes out it tubs which have been premade and get heated up, which makes you wonder how it could possibly have taken so long to heat up that meal! We barely ate any of our meals and if we were eating in the restaurant we would have asked for a full refund and left.More

Hadn't been here before & driving past so decided to stop. I ordered butter chicken & garlic naan. I assume their butter chicken is more authentic than what most Indian takeaways serve. It wasn't a sweet orange dish it was more deep brown with lots...of flecks through it (assume spices), tasted very strongly of cinnamon. The garlic naan was too thick and doughy. Overall I probably wouldn't go back, I prefer the sweet westernised butter chicken but would recommend to someone who wanted more authentic Indian.More

I went to this restaurant with close friends and their children; they live nearby, and we did not want to go too far for dinner. They have been to this restaurant many times before, but I am writing about my experience there. Pros: 1) Great...food. The Chicken Jalfrezi was the best dish I ate that night; the seasoning and spices were very balanced; I am sensitive to salty foods, and the dish was phenomenal. The butter chicken and lamb biryani were also excellent. 2) Service was good. Cons: 1) The restaurant is serving smaller portions of mango lassis but are still charging the same price. Summary: I did not know what to expect from an Indian restaurant in New Zealand, but I was pleasantly surprised by how good it was.More

Ordered take-aways twice during my 8-day stay in Remuera from this very quaint and cozy Indian restaurant. The food is great and the service fast, friendly and attentive. They seem very popular. Best naan breads ever! So fresh and very authentic.

Spur of the moment we dropped into this restaurant on Friday evening. Modern décor, good food - shared a mixed entrée platter, lamb and chicken curries were both well prepared, presented and tasty. Finished off with kulfi - excellent. Washed down with Kingfisher. One slight...drawback service whilst good was a little too "efficient". Good value. Will return.More

We drove past and was hungry and decided on Shahi in Remuera for a takeaway. This small establishment was recently renovated and I wanted to see what it was like. Well positioned in the heart of the Upland Rd village. I found the LED lighting..."cold" - warm white would have been a better choice. I am a tikka masala fan and found theirs tinny in taste and expensive by comparison to other similar restaurants. Will I go back? Answer: noMore

We like to support local businesses and decided to try Shahi with some friends who like Indian food. We all were very impressed with the service and quality of the dishes we chose at realistic prices and will definitely go again.

This is a very small but well appointed location. I went with my b.i.l. who is a chilli fanatic. He always, and I do mean always complains that even though he ordered hot it's not. They produced the real McCoy and the quality was great....Very good food, and excellent attentive, but not annoying service.More
