I have been to ‘That Curry Place’ around three times, all in which it never disappoints. Usually, my family arrives in Whitianga and goes to dine after a long car ride. Even though they close at 9:00, the staff never push us to leave and...cater with smiles and care. The food is wonderful, with a large menu of Thai and Indian meals.More

We like Indian and Thai food in roughly equal measures so this seemed like the perfect place to come and have lunch. The Goat curry was superb and as requested came in at more than New Zealand hot but slightly less than full-on Indian hot....The Garlic naan bread was one of the best naan I have enjoyed in recent times. It was light and hot and well drizzled with garlic. My other half had the vegetarian Pad Thai and was well pleased with the result. The service was warm and friendly and created an enjoyable interlude in an otherwise busy day. A good result all round.More

Our family loves it Indian cuisine and this place serves one of the better butter chickens we have tried. The naan bread was slightly overdone, but the char added a nice flavour. We have wonderful service and exceptional food.

First visit for 2021. As per usual the Curries were fantastic. Great little restaurant in the heart of Whitianga. Friendly and helpful staff. Excellent service. Large selection on the menu. They also serve Thai. Full bar. Comfortable seating.

Always been served a good curry and latest visit no exception. Friendly service and quality food as good as a big city restaurant, in a seaside town

Service is genuinely friendly. Great location to people watch. Kingfisher on tap all needed was a great curry. Boom and delivered. After commenting on how good it was the table went quiet as words got in the way of mmmmms and other happy punter sounds....We eat curry at least once a week all around the world and nz. Best curry on the peninsula and with surprising consistency. Can’t wait to next week. !!!!More

Nice little place in Whitianga that caters for a range of Indian/Thai tastes. It's not unique or outstanding but the staff are friendly and the food is good. Just think that the pricing is based on Auckland market. Not bad...
