A good menu, pleasant but not in your face staff and food prepared to a very high standard. It was also excellent value. I would recommend to anyone, especially vegetarians - the masala dosa was brilliant.

Great food with excellent service. After reading reviews here, we decided to dine here. We came around 6:30 p.m. on Friday night and saw some tables with "Reserved" signs. We're seated on the back as we had no reservations but it was a nice room. Many people came after us. They gave us a wrong order but the waiter was very apologetic and we didn't have to wait that long for him to bring the right one. Even though it was a busy night, the service was excellent. The food price is not expensive, average about NZD$15 per entree. Nan bread didn't come with a meal but it was only NZD$2 extra. The Garlic nan bread was very good.

My family and I dined at Shahi Tandoor on a whim while staying in Dunedin in December 2011 and were not disappointed. Every single dish we tried was absolutely amazing. I cannot forget how brilliant the food was here - it's ruined all other Indian restaurants for me forever! The food was also surprisingly cheap, and the service was excellent. I cannot recommend this restaurant enough.

The smells in this elegantly furnished restaurant were so good that we over ordered - 3 dishes for the two of us. We asked for Rogan Josh, Dal Makhani and Paneer Shahi to be spiced as the chef recommended. The lamb and dal were deliciously fiery - the dal more than the lamb - and flavored to perfection. The Paneer Shahi was similar to butter chicken and the mild dish to offset the heat of the other two. The dishes were nicely accented with very good garlic nan. This was the best Indian food we've had since our trip to India in 2010. Service was friendly and unbelievable fast. We barely had time for a toast before our main courses arrived. Fantastic meal out.

Five of us popped into Shahi Tandoor for dinner on the spur of the moment and were instantly welcomed inside. The wait staff were on to it straight away, offering suggestions and advising on wine choices too (perfect match too, as it turned out). The food was deliciously spicy in true Indian fashion and although "there", the wait staff did not linger or intrude in any way, remaining warm, friendly and approachable.
The price was extremely reasonable too and overall, we had a magical dining experience and one which has already got us planning our next visit.
