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.

Excellent setup to conform to the level 3 Covid 19 lockdown requirements. Everything relating to collection worked extremely well. The food was first rate, meat cooked perfectly and the mix of spices and ingredients were beautifully balanced. Perfect rice too. Well worth supporting this eatery, the food is delightful at affordable prices in generous portions . A lovely meal to take home. An absolute gem in this vibrant little town for locals and visitors alike to enjoy.

It was a rainy day after the Lego Museum we were starving so crossed the road to this Indian restaurant for a buffet lunch. Outstanding food, particularly the onion bhaji and Malai Kofta. Great service with the lady telling us all about the history of the Chambers and cool banqueting table. Good value. Worth a visit.

As a Waihi local I’ve been ordering from these guys for some time. Trying a variety of dishes from Rogan Josh, Chilli Chicken, Butter Chicken and most recently Lamb Bhuna. Man was I impressed, the flavours were divine and the lamb just melts in your mouth.

Came in with a group of 6,had to ask for the staff to take our order and open the windows or turn the air con on. All group members got sick bar 1 all ordered takeaways also and the takeaways made partners sick also. Called and got told the manager would ring back and never heard back after numerous amounts of ringing them.

Nice staff but poorly trained. Waited over 1 hour and half for order to be taken and only after reminder. Bottle of wine ordered was different and it took 3 requests to determine cost. Was the only bottle of Rose in the place. Meals were very mediocre, seemed to be the same sauce for everything. Has been better before. Had to ask for glasses. Rice came out 20 mins beforehand and was cold. Be a while before we return.

I am not one to write a bad review but we ordered the Butter Chicken and a Chicken Korma as previously we had lamb which was not cooked properly. There was hardly any chicken and so much sauce. The food was tasteless, the korma should have had robust complex flavours but tasted like it was sat in a bath of dirty water. I ordered a peshwari naan bread which was stuffed with coconut and was very dry to eat. Traditionaly these should have sultana s and nuts on, like most Indians serve them. The waitress was pleasant but that is all I can summon up on the experience. If I had been asked about how my meal was I would have told them at the time. Sorry but I wont be back.

Absolutely the worst tasting Indian food I have tried. Dishes lack flavour and have a mix mash of spices. Staff don’t seem to have a clue. Warning never order for delivery because you will be waiting over two hours to get your cold food.

Stumbled across this gem Amazing food and very friendly service from manager and waiter. I had the classic butter chicken & garlic naan combo…. delicious! The curry was not overly sweet, with a tasty tomato flavour. The naan was the perfect mix of fluffy and crunchy. My partner had the chicken korma and cheese naan which he really enjoyed. We’ll definitely be back here! Best wishes Tandoori chambers

This place is an absolute gem! Gorgeous, authentic food with layers of delicious flavour. Friendly and welcoming service and atmosphere, lovely dining area with loads of character. Can’t recommend this place highly enough. Try the Handi Lamb or the Bhuna Lamb, delicious! And the onion bhaji and garlic naan bread are crazy delicious.

Food was amazing, Prices were extraordinary, incredible value for money, cannot fault it. If you're in Waihi it's a must visit, and if you're not in Waihi I think it'll be worth the drive

Arrived at 6.30pm passing through Waihi thinking stop and a nice dinner of Indian food- we had eaten here about two years prior no problem and food was delicious- but this time the staff show us 2 adults and two children under 8 years to a half setup table. We ordered straight away knowing what we would like - while waiting for sometime we notice other people in the restaurant whom we’re there for some time had not food and waiting. While walking to ladies room I over head a customer ask where there was as they been waiting a hour - they to had two young children! When food finally arrived - then was no service as such! Just popped in the middle of table no smiles or talk from the waiter - had ask for cutlery and napkins- I did notice at the front of house person but this person just stayed there and didn’t even go and find out if any customers needed anything. Mango chicken was tasteless no like previous standard they had two years ago- sorry won’t be back - disappointing services (if any) even had to instruct the front counter on how to print off a re receipt- Please management review staff customer care processes - I’ll hate to think what our overseas tourist think of this kind of service! Positive - lovely interior inside the building.

We called to order two dishes from Tandoori Chambers at 5:22pm on 17 December. We spoke to a women with an accent which sounded Indian Sri/Lanken, for 1 minute 20 seconds. This lady advised casually “you will just need to show your vaccine passport on arrival” at the end of the call - To which I said “I do not have a vaccine passport - why would I need this for a pickup order?”. The lady seemed flustered, said she would still put the order through and hung up. We turned up 20 minutes later to pick up our order, to which we were rudely met by the Front of House male with glasses - He continuously denied that they ever received a call, even when we showed him the call log history - He said that we must be confused, said everything to get around and get out of what was in plain site in front of his face on the call history. He continued to defend, deny and flat out lie going to the extreme of saying they dont have anyone with Indian/Sri Lanker accents working there - We know Indian woman that do work there. All in all, it seems that because we made it clear that we didnt have a vaccine passport, we were treated poorly, unfairly and flat out rudely. WE WILL NOT BE VISITING AGAIN AND HAVE INFORMED THE COMMUNITY.
