Nice Indian restaurant located in Central Whakatane. The stuffed mushrooms were a great entree. Nice curries and friendly service.

This was just the best Indian cuisine we have experienced for a long time. Very nice menu, good service and more importantly the food was delicious. We would highly recommend Spice junction as an Indian restaurant.

Since Spice Junction has opened, me and my family and friends frequent this lovely restaurant at least once a week and sometimes more xxxx We also have deliveries when we can't make it. The whole experience is just fantastic and what a lovely family and...staff. The food is fantastic, never had a bad dish. We would definitely recommend. xxxMore

Plenty of bars and restaurants in the town centre but we chose Spice Junction and we weren't disappointed. Good food with the right amount of spice and friendly service - reasonable prices. With a visit.

I lived in malaysia for more than 20 years so had my fair share of Malay, Chinese, and Indian cuisine (both north and South India). So I was pleasantly surprised at how good our dinner was. I had Malai kofta, the others were, chicken tikka...Masala, prawn malabari, and lamb afgani. Excellent. The cheese and garlic naan was also noteworthy. Highly recommended here.More

Great service, nice ambience, great food with lots of flavour. I will consider dining again next time we visit Whakatane. Nothing more to say.

Big venue but nice atmosphere and very gracious courteous staff. Food served quickly and VERY delicious. Especially Tawa lamb. Mangoe chicken good too but perhaps a bit sweet.
