We ordered on their website and got the confirmation and everything with so called real time updates, what a joke.
5 minutes after it was meant to be delivered, despite real time updates saying on route and then order complete we received nothing so we called to find out that the order was not there.

The person on the phone blamed the printer and said they would do it now (this is now an hour after originally placing order, we declined and went somewhere else as it was far to late to wait for a delivery).
This is the second time that this has happened using their website for placing an order.

When we had previously eaten at the restaurant it was good , but it does not make up for the abysmal service that their website offers and lack of apology and willingness to help when we phoned to question it.

Extremely unhappy and as a result will never go back as there are a few other Indian places in Taupo that have just as good food.
