About
Sangam Indian Cuisine - Whitianga’s only authentic Indian restaurant has been serving people in the town since 2004 and continues to lead its way as a popular local Indian joint in town. The restaurant seats 82 diners inside, while another 12 seats in the outdoors are highly popular in summers. We guarantee fresh high-quality meats bought from the local butcher. We do not use colouring agents in our food, so there is no orange looking curries or meat. Our preparations are authentic and prepared in Indian style. You can either choose to dine with us or take away a meal. Most of our curries are unique to us, whilst the restaurant also does some modern Indian food, such as the Lamb Shank Curry

Family of three with a reservation. As it was low season not really needed but received a warm welcome and seating in a nice dining room. They have an overwhelmingly expansive menu of Indian Cuisine but of course this is typical of Indian restaurants and...also our server was helpful narrowing things down for us. If you enjoy Indian cuisine you will not be disappointed and will not leave hungry. An unexpected place to get this quality of Indian cuisine and we would certainly go again!More

This is our favourite restaurant in Whitianga and have never been disappointed- food is always delicious and service great. 4 of us for dinner - not made a reservation but it was no trouble to the staff even though they were quite busy.

Yumee food and good portion size, and didn't have to wait long. Great variety on menu. Unfortunately venue lacked atmosphere as did the waitress.

We went for take home meals. I was overcharged for my orders and my friend was short changed when purchasing drinks while we waited. Both mistakes were rectified after pointing out the errors. I would expect any business that is expecting repeat business not to...adopt such practices. We appreciate that hospitality is challenging but repeat business is gold. Don't cheat your customers.More

Shared the mixed platter and two of us couldn’t finish it. The Lamb madras cooked to medium strength and Chicken dopiaza were sooo good. I’d definitely recommend a visit

Travelled the length and breadth of NZ on our recent trip and this was the best Indian diner by a distance. The service was extremely prompt to begin with and the place had a great vibe to compliment it. The food that came out was...divine . We ate as a group and shared everything from scallops to a slow cooked goat , to the charcoal oven cooked duck and apricot and we were extremely pleased with every dish that we tried. Just a great spot in a beautiful little beach town, Whitianga is blessed to have this diner.More

Found this place by accident, and glad we did. Food and service was the best. The owners should be proud of both. Fully recommended if you're looking for Indian cuisine. Will be back

We ate here twice during our 3 day stay in whitianga and it was absolutely fantastic!! Most delicious food we have had in a long time! We tried 4 dishes and each one of them was extraordinary. The restaurant was not very buisy, so we...hesitated at first, but were amazed when we went nevertheless.More
