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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Terrible food. They give meager and bland food in the name of Indian food. It's a rip off. We ordered chicken sagwala, seekh kebab and kadai chicken. We couldn't even eat it.

Autentic and very delicious food. We loved it. Our kids especially liked the naan bread. We can really recommend it!

Worst take away and absolutely disappointing service. It just takes an extra 2 hours from the time they say the food will be ready. Absolute shame. And very average food as well. Rather go for fish and chips.

The staff are friendly and the chef knows his curries. It's a regular family favorite for us. As an ex-restaurant owner, I appreciate his skills and demenour.

We ordered delivery to our motel. Their pamphlet said delivery and we specifically asked for delivery to our motel (the motel confirmed they deliver there). They said 15 minutes. 40 minutes later we were still waiting. Rang again asking where the food was and they...were like “oh it’s ready for you to pick up”. No. One star. Been driving all day with two toddlers and that’s the last thing we need.More

We stayed in Turangi and decided to try this place. We enjoyed our meal. The Byriani was a hude portion and enough for two.

A group of friends and I went in to eat only to find they forgot about our phone order so we ordered again. Only to find an hour later that they still hadn't started cooking.

This place needs to get its act together. But the lack of competition means it probably won’t. Tepid takeaway curries in which you play “hunt the meat” in the sea of sauce. When we got home, the entree wasn’t there and we really couldn’t be...bothered going back.More
