King Tiger, an Asian Fusion Restaurant, was right next door to Aspen Court Motel, our base in Franz Joseph. It has both indoor and outdoor seating and is quite popular, judging from the crowd. The main attraction for us was the large selection of Vegetarian dishes. Our choice was extremely well prepared and tasty. Our favourite in Franz Joseph.

So many different types of Asian food. It wasn't the most amazing but for everything it wasn't bad all things considered

Very friendly service, huge menu selection and good quality food. Our table was in a bit of a dark zone and we felt a bit rushed but overall it was a good choice and a welcome relief from the usual NZ fare.

So glad I found this place. I'm eating my way through the menu each time I pass through Franz with my guests. Amazing food and friendly staff! Very reasonable and good portion size.

We sat under some lights but it was very hard to read the menu. Service was good and the food was oaky for our friends. I did not like the meal and after paying the owner/manager apologised and gave me my money back, so very well done

We enjoyed our dinner here the night we arrived at Franz Josef. The menu offers a wide range of Asian/Indian food, the curries might be the best. There is outdoor dining, and the indoor dining is dark, cozy and inviting.

Wow this place is incredible. We had one of our most enjoyable Indian meals ever here. The butter chicken was off the scale. My wife enjoyed cocktails from their wide selection and I enjoyed tap beer. Service was friendly attentive and relatively efficient. I cant recommend King Tiger highly enough!

Starters were ok. My curry main was actually not bad. My wife's Thai green curry was very substandard. Expensive for below average food.
