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.

We have just had dinner here. We loved our dishes. We often get curry in our home town and I make pretty good Palak Paneer. We both thought our dishes were worth coming back for. The staff were attentive and nice. There were locals eating...as well. A good sign. We ordered medium spicey. Wasnt spicey at all. I do like hot.More

We travelled from Wellington up the coast for an event. We chose this restaurant from the reviews that were spot on. Absolutely delicious. My 7 year old said it's the best curry he's ever had and we have eaten a lot of curries. My husband...said the butter chicken was amazing. The garlic naan was so tasty I almost ordered another. Would highly recommend to others.More

That has to be the worst vindaloo I have ever had. Not for the first time have I had a meal where I had to search for the meat. There were very few small chicken pieces drowning in a runny curry sauce. There was nothing...else to fill it out.More

Delicious Indian food. Was one of the only places open on New Year’s Day but so glad we went. Food was fresh and delicious and a good level of spice. Friendly attentive staff.

Post Covid-19, I want to support local. The Spice Lounge deserved a higher rating, but unfortunately the meal was let down by tiny portions of meat in the main sized curry dishes, of which there were only 4-5 small pieces. In my mind it isn’t...good value given the $20 per main dish. Good points are excellent service and quick meal dispatch.More

Gary who was at the reception communicated well with us, understood our concern about cross contamination and took extra care to make sure that our food was gluten free. The food was very tasty, and the hospitality that we experienced was second to none. We...will definitely return.More

We came here with three children for lunch and couldn't have been happier. The team was so patient with the kids and were super friendly. The food was great and reasonable. Will be back next time we're in town.

This is a great place to sample all types of Indian food, it’s not your normal restaurant it more of a silver service type with reasonable priced for both the food and bar, the service is with a smile and prompt. I have been a...number of times with mixed groups and every time was a good experience.More
