This is a really nice restaurant and very clean. It offers Indian and Thai food and a children's menu. The service was good and the staff very friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and it was good value for money.

Amazing tasty and inexpensive! We were surprised to find this place in a town in the middle of nowhere. To be honest it's one of the most redeeming features of this town. We had the chicken tikka, chicken korma and sides - fab! Yum yum. They even had western meals for children with less expansive palettes (like ours). As Molly... More

As it was a public holiday and another choice was booked out we decided on the Copper Pot , not much choice in Westport. To our surprise the food was tasty, and all that we wanted.

My family and I are visiting Westport as part of our South Island trip and after a big day of tramping and driving we were quite keen when we saw this Indian restaurant! Quite disappointing... Lamb korma was very liquid with not much meat. Chicken Tikka Masala was very hot but not tasty. The garlic naan was pretty wet... I... More

Madras lamb curry was fantastic. Generous serving of rice, and garlic naan completed a really exceptional meal.

We settled on this place because the other two restaurants we tried were full. It wasn't busy here but it should have been. The food was delicious and the service was very attentive. We shared the mixed platter for starters and it would almost have done me for a main. Followed that with a lamb korma which was very nice... More

This restaurant boasts to have Thai food and Chinese as well. The choice for Thai food was red or green curry, for Chinese fried rice. Not surprisingly the choice for Indian food was pretty limited as well, but the quality of the food was pretty good.

The food at the Copper Pot is excellent Indian cuisine to refuel after the Old Ghost Road. It's not hot (medium is mild) quite authentic and the restaurant is nicely furnished. I have a dairy intolerance and they made my curries without cream. The drinks selection is more than adequate but you can also bring your own.
