We had the Chicken Tikka with chutney to start and then the beef vindaloo, buttered chicken, and the chicken vilyati with the garlic and cheese naan. We enjoyed every bit of it and spiced perfectly as ordered. This is a must try when you are in Taupo.

We decided to get takeaway from this restaurant based on trip advisor reviews. Chose the butter chicken and the lamb vindaloo along with a side of naan bread..both dishes came with basmati rice...the flavor and spiciness were awesome....our only complaint would be that the dishes were heavy on the awesome sauces and a bit light on the actual meat or...

Visiting Taupo, Decided to get a take away meal after reviewing Trip Advisor. Ready on time, good size, great flavour however the chicken in both dishes was dry and over cooked which spoilt the meal. A real shame as it could have been great. Would try another Indian restaurant next time.

Want Indian food? No meed to look further but try this. I was surprised by both the quality of the food and the price. Extremely great staff and food with low prices. Have eaten korma and masala lamb with buttered naan. Not disappointed.

Master of India is the best Indian restaurant in New Zealand! I haven't tried all of them, of course, but this one is definitely my favourite! The hardest part is to choose, though you can't get wrong: always yummy. Place is lovely, and staff great.

A great Indian restaurant - extensive menu and the food was first class. Very authenitic decore and the staff very friendly and helpful in explaining some of the menu we wern't familiar with (the Balti house kebab curry was beautiful) We chose this restuarant after reading trip advisor reviews and will definitely go back there. Not to be confused with... More

My wife and I went to Taste of India last night as a birthday treat. Restaurant is small and cozy, staff really friendly and food was to die for. Definitely the best Indian meal we have had for a long long time. Authentically Indian food, great service and good prices. Definitely be back to this one!

Surely one of the very best Indian takeaways, we have had from anywhere - and we have had a lot of them including back in the UK. We will definitely be ordering more, but first will be dining in - as everything will surely tase better straight from the kitchen.
