This restaurant is always consistently excellent. We always make sure we stay in the Rangiora area on our way south so we can have dinner here. The ingredients and tastes are so fresh - like each dish is cooked from scratch. Sandeep and his staff...are always so professional and friendly. Please come and open in Auckland!!More

We just love this restaurant. Every year on our way to Wanaka we make sure we have a night in Rangiora so we can have dinner at A Picket Full of Spices. The food is outstanding - so fresh and you can really taste the...spices. Sandeep, one of the owners is charming and goes out of his way to make our experience amazing. Manager Steve is also charming and so interesting to talk to. We cannot recommend highly enough.More

Had several takeaways from here and not had a bad one. A good menu and reasonably priced. Our favorite is chicken jalfrezi, had to go mild as medium was rather hot.

If I could I gave 7 points for this Indian restaurant. The food was absolutely amazing starting with the Mixed platter - every piece was perfect - to the paneer dish and the yummy peshwari naan. I can say that this is the best Indian...food we had outside of India. Chapeau!More

I can't recall offhand but take a look at their online menu. It is very comprehensive. Plus the chef is very accommodating so I'm sure you won't have any problems!
