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.

Really good food, fast service. We had the chicken tika, stuffed and garlic nan and some deep fried cheese parcels with tamarind. Better than most places in Auckland. Will definitely return.

We made a takeaway order for Samosas, Naan, Butter Chicken and Daal Fry. All of the food tasted so wholesome and fresh, with real ingredients, not a processed or artificial taste at all. We have tried the Methi Chicken and it is a delicious lighter...curry. We always go back for the quality food right here in Katikati!More

we Ordered takeout via ph, was advised it would be ready in 45mins. Got there and was told it was not ready, paid and waited, food came out but it was the wrong order, was told to pay more and 5mins later our food was...ready (Hour and a half total wait time), got food home - only a couple of mins down the road and everything was cold! Not just a bit cold, really cold! The new containers are good for eco friendly however the lids do not stay on and they are hard to pick up. After tonight’s experience I don’t think we will bother going back, cold curry is not that nice and very disappointing when your looking forward to a yummy dinner.More

We live local and have been told by word of mouth and also read on Trip Advisor how great the food is here. So over the past two years we have had several takeaways, but have always been disappointed how average the food actually is....Thought I’d give the Rogan Josh one more try last week but was served up a watery meal with most of ending up in the takeaway bag when I arrived home as the loose lid had come off one their new “eco containers”. Maybe we’ve always been unlucky and picked the chefs night off when we’ve got a takeaway I don’t know, but in future we will eat Indian food elsewhere as we feel we’ve given this establishment a fair crack over the yearsMore
