We had takeaway curries tonight from the Indian Cafe. I had Lamb Saagwala with a Tandoori Roti. My husband had Mango Chicken with a garlic Naan. Both curries were absolutely delicious

Fantastic. Tasty curries and sauces. Tender well cooked meat, we had lamb and chicken both well cooked. Generous portions, could have shared if we wanted. Breads cooked well, not doughy. We ordered takeout, but restaurant was really welcoming - team so friendly!!! Would go again...and recommend. Yum!More

Visiting Nelson for the day & didn’t know where to go. So glad this place was one of the few that opened their doors for dinner a little before 5pm when they saw us lurking around lol. Very welcoming and the service is very fast....Delicious curries, hubby had the lamb korma & I had the mango chicken with rice & garlic naan bread with hot plate entree. Thought our overall bill would be more but very reasonably priced for such delicious food. Would definitely visit if in the area again.More

I enjoyed a lovely meal :) I’m usually scared to go for the hot and settle for medium, tonight I took a bold step and went for the medium-hot 😁 🔥 it was perfect. I’m a happy customer

After a couple of very disappointing meals in Nelson, I decided to try Indian Cafe because the reviews were really good. Absolutely loved it and some of the best Indian that I have had in quite a few years. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff and...great food.More
