This was a repeat visit after perhaps a 2 year absence. This restaurant is now an institution, and deservedly so. Not too big, excellent staff, and a free port to conclude. Especially liked are the large roomy tables. Diners are not packed in like sardines. The food was good, though my diet is restricted at the moment so my options... More

The service is superb. Far better than most restaurants. Unfortunately the food is pretty mediocre. Generous servings but the flavours are quite muddy and appear to be tailored for a kiwi Indian audience. If your favourite dish is butter chicken then you'll like talk of India. If you prefer something a little different then you probably won't.

What can I say... you can't find a better Indian restaurant. You will feel welcomed here and the food is awesome. Also try the lunch meal as it's very good value!

This has been my go to Indian restaurant since I first located to Tauranga 18 months ago.

Need to mention they use free range and as much natural products as possible.... More

Try the lamb bhuna with fresh green chillies and plain naan. It is absolutely outstanding! Spicy and refreshing at the same time.
