When in Pukekohe and wanting a decent fair priced meal with good friends or family, you have to try Ginger's. Good fun, fine food and decent drinks.
The wait staff are polite and attentive, the bar staff know their stuff and the food was right up there. The selection is vast and designed to tempt the taste buds. Heat is from mild to medium to hot, and then to Indian Hot! You choose.
Have to say the Lamb Saagwala was tender and tasty as was the Vegetable Korma. Did try the Beef Vindaloo at Indian hot and can recommend it for both flavour and chili heat.
Couple that with Kingfisher or Cobra beers and you will be in heaven.
The Naan bread is a real delicacy and it is fresh!
We will be back.

Pukekohe is full of indian restaurants, but this is my favourite. The staff are very nice, friendly and always seem to want to make you feel comfortable. I have been there a few times and every time has been enjoyable. The interior is decent but nothing spectacular (with the great prices that they offer you probably wouldn't expect much more), however the food is very authentic tasting. They offer special prices on monday through to thursday (I think), $15 for a meal, a naan bread and a soft drink. Over all, good service, great food at very affordable prices - can't go wrong with that :)

This was our favourite curry house in Pukekohe, when we visited last night we discovered it had changed hands, the menu has been re-printed and several old favourites have been removed and the prices have increased. We ordered Chicken Tikka Masala medium and Lamb Dopiaza Hot, the service is still friendly and efficient and the food arrived in good time. However both curries looked exactly the same. The chicken was OK and had some flavour although the sauce was a little thick. The lamb was chunky and tough and virtually tasteless and certainly not hot, it was swimming in tomato paste and had one or two slices of onion. The waitress offered to take the curry away and make it hotter and when we mentioned our disappointment to the manager he said next time we should tell him we wanted it Indian hot. I'm not sure this would fix it, the standard has fallen so far we will be looking for a new favourite curry house.

I have found the labling of the curries on Ginger's menu to be accurate for my Kiwi palate. When it says medium I find it about right. Mild would suit people who want exactly that and hot for the brave. The staff give very good service always.

One of the few retaurants open on a Monday night in Pukekohe, we arrived because of a power cut at home and so unable to cook supper. The food was good and the menu a bit different from the run of the mill Indian restaurants. We were there early and soon after we arrived it got busier. There was also a constant stream of take away business.
