I live in Paihia so I normally get take-away and therefore cannot really judge anything but the food itself. And it is very good. It is not exceptional simply because I have had exceptional curry and this is not it. It is the top of what I would call 'normal' curry but that in itself is a strong recommendation!.

One of the worst Indian restaurants in New Zealand. We had vegetarian Indian food, and it was absolutely tasteless. We had ordered standard indian dishes like the spinach saag, and yellow dal. the food was cold and the saag was bitter. The biryani was just steamed rice with a few pieces of corn and carrots like you find in fried rice. They are quite under staffed and our food took more than an hour to arrive. Disappointed with this restaurant.

I've been living in New Zealand for 2 1/2 years and this is one of the best Indian Restaurants I've come across! I thought the Paneer was fantastic! The services was great - we went twice on our visit to Paihia and the waiter remembered our order from the previous time. The portion of rice offered with the mains was significant and the garlic cheese naan bread was not too cheesy - but was light and crispy. We asked for our meals a bit hotter than "Kiwi Hot" and the spice was perfect. Definitely stop in here on your trip to Paihia. Great flavors!

We went here after thinking it had shut , the place is hard to find if you are a visitor (we live here) Great food, with generous portions and seriously good garlic nann. The wait staff are very friendly. Its BYOW too! Its next to the 4 Square supermarket but you have to look hard to see any advertising. Come on Indian Fusion, get out there and you'll see your customers come flocking in! Love the place.

The food and service here is second to none, highly recommended. Nice atmosphere and located right in the township of Paihia.
