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.

Firstly, there were flies in my beer. The waitress watched me pull them out. Asked if I got them all. Then walked off! I had the chicken Madras. When asked for spice level, I said "as hot as you can make it." So she said..."medium, then?" Service was terrible, flavour was ok, but I was sick for hours afterwards. Wouldn't recommend to anyone. I normally go to curry king (10/10) but they were completely full.More

Now one of the best curries in town seems to be new management and staff. Recently redecorated and done well. Second visit her but this visit was with the Curry Club and we will all be back soon

I have been to restaurants around nz and would recommend this as one of the best fresh meals I have tasted. Would recommend this restaurant anytime.

Best Indian restaurant in Kerikeri I’ve tried them all and this is the best! Probably the best ‘local’ Indian restaurant that have been too in NZ. Love the use of ground cashew nuts in curries to add that authentic texture - so many others restaurants...treat that ingredient as optional. Make sure you order the samosas - so gooood ….. ok going back today for my fix.More

We have fallen in love with the Rogan Josh curry served at Turmeric in Kerikeri. We think it is the best we have ever tasted. The flavours are perfect and the meat is just so tender. The lunch deal is excellent and we have tried...a number of their other curries and they have all been top quality. Excellent naan served each time. This is friendly restaurant and we will continue to return for the lovely service and superb food.More

Fantastic meal out, we are on holiday and reviewed the restaurants in the area, this came out top, so gave it a try. The food was amazing, service very good and a nice chilled atmosphere. Really, really enjoyed the whole dining experience.

We came here for dinner one evening. Having walked past it many times I had never been in as there is nothing startling from the outside. The decor is not particularly Indian looking! Decided to try it given the good TA reviews....we were not disappointed....The service was very pleasant and efficient and the food was amazing. It was served up very quickly, beautifully tender and good sized portions. I always order what I call “Indian medium not kiwi medium” as I like some heat to my curries; they made this perfect with just the right amount of kick. Overall very impressed and I would say this has the best Indian food in Kerikeri. Will definitely be back!More

This was recommended to us but our experience was truly awful. The food was the worst Indian food we have ever had (and we have had a lot). The waiter went missing for 45 minutes leaving no one to speak to or to pay. I...actually had to go into the kitchen to find someone. The restaurant is completely characterless. I cannot believe it has a future unless there is a big rethink here.DO NOT GO THERE!More

Disappointed. My order was a Chicken Vindaloo “a very hot and spiced curry” Oxford. “very hot Indian curry” Collins.) I had already said I wanted it hot and the very pleasant lady asked “Indian hot?” and I said yes. The sauce itself was submerged beneath...about 6mm of oil which I had to drain, see photo. The spiciness was about a Medium. The flavours were fine. I would have taken it back but it’s an hours drive.More
