I just had a less than average chicken vindaloo which satisfied my hunger but little else. There is just nothing extra to write about the food, decor or service. I won't bother to go back.

Superb Curry. The curry was fantastic and my husband who has typical kiwi male taste in food loved it and wants to go back. The Chicken tikka, Chicken madras, Chicken tawa are recommended. Very hot to eat there in Summer, be lovely in Winter. They do take out. Great service. Highly recommend this Restaurant.

The food here was less than mediocre, it was greasy and there was no subtly to the spice.

The decor is basic, the service ill-informed. It was indeed the worst East Indian meal we had in New Zealand. Avoid avoid avoid!

This place was the most disgusting Indian Restaurant experience we have ever experienced, and we have eaten at quite a few Indian Restaurants around the world over the past twenty years.
They had run out of stock of 3 of the basic beers, the service at the table was disgusting, some tables being offered water and others (including us) not. ( and there were only 8 people dining in the place in total.
The toilets were disgusting, and the food was tasteless, the sauces were diluted and also tasteless. The samosas were stale, and the curries lacked any spices. They tasted worse than a cheap supermarket frozen take home curry.

We drive past Thames every year, sometimes several times a year to our holiday home, and this is one Place, we will never go back to, no matter how much we are craving a decent Indian. We'll wait till we get back to Auckland.

If you need a meal in Thames, avoid this place like the plague.
