A good local Indian Restaurant. Service was great. Food was great. Toilets could do with modernising.

Well...it was cold and the rest of the town was zooed and we were getting hangry and a little desperate...and like the light shining on the baby cheeses we saw Raizada.

This is a great place to dine. The food is uniquely tasteful and one of the best in New Zealand. The Chef is creative for sure. A must go place in Blenheim.

I have advocated for about a year that Raizada is the best Indian restaurant in Blenheim. Although it's ambiance is lacking, I have maintained that the taste and quality of the food has been better than the other restaurants. That view changed a result of a poor takeaway yesterday.

My husband and I almost NEVER go to a restaurant twice when traveling as we want to try as many places as we can while we are there. Well, we broke that rule here!

Sadly, not great. Limited opportunities for Indian cuisine in Blenheim, anticipated more because of previous reviews. Disappointing.

We really enjoyed our dinner, fresh and tasty food with great flavour and spice. It was so good we even bought some spice mixes to try to copy it at home. We would definately return when in Blenheim.
