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 frequently get takeaway food from here, however we will not be going back as they have not put our phone order through to the kitchen twice now. So, we go to collect it and get told the kitchen doesn't have the order and the...person at the counter can't find it. Tried to follow this up with the manager but no further response other than 'we'll look into it'. Very disappointing as the food is fine.More

Don’t bother - service is beyond rude. Waited 15 mins before any attention and gave up. Quite how places like this with such poor service ethic survive in this day and age is beyond me. Avoid.

Two things. Firstly, having consumed significant amounts of curry all over the UK, the versions here are bland and uninspiring. A Madras sauce is a Madras sauce, not mild or medium, as is korma, vindaloo, etc. They are all different styles of dishes. Or should...be! Order a chicken massala and it looks exactly the same as a chicken Madras, or a Butter Chicken. And it tastes the same. Secondly, takeaways from here have gone up over 50% in the 18 months I've been having them. Inflation is only 6%. Sheek kebabs have gone up from $18 to $25 since January! Every six months this place puts its prices up 10%. I won't be coming back. $90 for two starters and two main meals. Disgusting!More

We booked our third visit to this restaurant on a busy Friday night. On arrival we were greeted and seated with a friendly welcome. Water and glasses delivered and our order was taken without delay, the service was efficient and unobtrusive, the food when delivered...was of a high standard. We noted staff and management working well together and obviously the kitchen was well organised and kept a steady flow of both dine in and take out meals. A good experience for our dining out evening - we will return.More

Had the best curry in New Zealand here. Lovely meal and served really quickly. Worth visiting Greytown just for the curry.

Four of us went for lunch last Sunday, having previously had delicious takeaway from here. Given that the food is so good, we were surprised that we were the only ones in the Restaurant. We all ordered something different and were all happy with what...we ordered. The portions were generous and for those of us that couldn't eat it all, the owner/manager cheerfully packed it all up for us to take home. We enjoy Indian food and have dined at many Indian restaurants but the food here is by far the best I've tasted. Thank you so much for the wonderful food and service.More

Don’t bother, we used to go to this Indian frequently, we moved from the Wairarapa but we went back five months ago and wasn’t good, we are In Greytown this weekend and gave it another try, very disappointing will never go back food was greasy/Oily...as the young staff don’t care, they should of never opened a 2nd restaurant as since this has happened the Greytown Indian has certainly gone down hill, its now the worse Indian we have ever been to in NZ and we have been to many around NZ, just save your moneyMore

We go here maybe once a month. The food is consistently good. The waitress has got to know what I like and will tell me if she thinks it would be too hot. Much appreciated.

Great vegan menu, friendly staff, very generous serves and very tasty. Beware though that “medium” heat is quite hot so if you don’t like your meals spicy hot, go for mild!

We’ve eaten here a number of time over the past few months but never taken the opportunity to write a review. Last time we ordered a chicken Jalfrezi, prawn tikka massala and onion bhaji. Given these guys are the only Indian restaurant in the area...there would be a chance that it could be average, this certainly isn’t the case and the food is exceptional. We really rate the quality and portions offered here, the food is of the highest quality.More

We went there for lunch at 1pm. We were the only customers in the restaurant. The waitress curtly told us that they close at 2pm. When I told her it was rude to tell us what time they closed as we walked in she wanted...to argue. Disappointed and won't be going there to dine in again. Food was nice as usual.More

Delicious food and a good variety to choose from. Staff were very friendly and helpful and we enjoyed their suggestions. We enjoyed that his was a BYO restaurant which meant the evening was excellent value for the cost. Takeaway is also available.
