The Rotorua food scene is overall uninspired. This Indian restaurant is a stand out. It is delicious Indian food, centrally located in the town and the staff was friendly. We chose this place because it was listed in Lonely Planet. Definitely a good call.

I was at the Indian Star before and remember it was very good so I planned my trip to come back. The Restaurant is very busy in the evening, which is a good sign, but they still managed to find us a table for 5 People and serve us excellent food.

Nice place. Very good servants. The space outside is a little dull but inside it's a nice restaurant. The food we had was very good and well cooked. Could need some vegetables on the plate though.

The restaurant was very busy but even so only had to wait 30 minutes. The butter chicken was outstanding as was the pilau rice and cheese no garlic naan. Service was polite and professional. The beer was served nice and cold a failing in a lot of Indian restaurants in the U.K as is the failure of cooking butter chicken... More

Pros Location Excellent breads Service Cons Standard pre-cooked curries spiced to order (not authentic) PS I'm Indian, cook curries the way my Mum (and her Mum...) does and have visited over 1000 curry restaurants

Indian Star has the most delicious vegetarian Indian food. Takeaways or eating in the restaurant, the food is always good and so is the service.

Located on the eat street, they have the best Indian food in Rotorua available with a variety of options. Also, they have some of the rudest people working for them. We went here on the 27th evening and asked for a table for the 2 of us - 4-5 tables were empty and i don't know why this Indian girl... More
