Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The finest Indian restaurant I have ever visited with a great view outside and very attentive and professional staff. The food exceeded all my expectations. The flavours were vibrant, the spices perfectly balanced, and each dish was a masterpiece in itself. I highly recommend this...restaurant to anyone craving an authentic and memorable dining experience.More

Last might in Wanaka, had had a lovely day on the lake and saw the restaurant as we were walking back from the car. It is upstairs, and we sat on the balcony, looking over Lake Wanaka and the sun setting behind the hill. Lovely...food, great service and a perfect way to spend out last evening.More

Absolutely loved this restaurant. The food and mango lassi were very tasty and with authentic flavours. I recommend sitting outside as you'll have a breathtaking view of Lake Wanaka.

A great variety of plates, and flavors, with a great view on the Lake. Overall our dinner was great. Only my fish was not best quality and the cleanliness of the cutlery and glasses could be improved

Located at the lake front in town centre, this restaurant has a good selection of Indian dishes. Palak paneer and tandoori roti were amazing. However aloo jeera always was bland. The selection was drinks was amazing.

Popular spot for dinner in central Wanaka, and understandably so; the food is delicious!! Make sure you book a table as it’s always busy, with locals and tourists alike. Try and get a balcony table, especially in the warmer months. Highly recommended

After reading the last 2 reviews, I was confused as to how they could be so different! I chose to take the advice from the men from London, as they really know what fabulous Indian should really taste like, and wow, we weren’t disappointed. Everything...we ordered was delicious! Shame on you Alison L, you have no clue!More

Outstanding curry. Having eaten Michelin star curry in London and curries on the infamous Brick Lane, this curry house is up there with the best. Awesome food, great selection of local wines and beers and very very good service. Restaurant manager was attentive and nothing...was too much trouble. Staying in Wanaka, have dinner here.More

I wish I had come on here beforehand and read some of these reviews......to put things mildly, the food was ettrocious! Please, if you visit and your food is not up to par, send it back and demand a refund. All staff speak English here...and their silence when you complain isn't 'I don't understand' it's more - how do I tell you no without upsetting you!' The staff were actually lovely, but the food standard is very poor here - from the marinating, tasteless, no seasoning, cold when served food to the raw garlic on the Naan.....OMGoodness. How sad for them.More

We’re from the UK, which has a fair choice of curry houses . The Bombay Palace produced an outstanding meal this evening . This was a cut above ; with depth of flavour, moist and tender meat, delicious pickles and popodoms. Really good portion sizes....The staff are friendly and helpful in assisting selection, always smiling. The views are stunning and the general ambience is great. This is an excellent restaurant and we would highly recommend their delicious food.More

A bit strange arriving as they offered us a couch or the very windy (cool day) deck when there appeared to be lots of tables inside and the person who greeted us lacked any friendliness. Then we ordered a beer to have before ordering lunch...and it did not come. We then ordered the beer again while ordering our lunch. Because we were freezing on the deck we flagged another waiter who found us a table (plus one for another couple who seemed to be having the same experience being sent to the deck then freezing). All we can surmise is that a large amount of reservations were expected that did not come. Anyways. After moving things really picked up and our new waiter was excellent at service, and another came over to kindly check how we were doing. The food was excellent… for one of us the best lamb saag and garlic naan ever, and we eat a lot of Indian foods in our area of Canada. So rating 4 for the strange reception but a definite 5 for the quality of the food and the ambience of the restaurant itself.More

Beautiful Indian cuisine with a spectacular view! We had intended on ordering a couple of main meals but when we started with the starters, we decided to graze on more starters. That menu alone is worth having! This food is beautiful and the flavours were...amazing. To top off our experience, the staff were so kind and friendly. We will be back and definitely recommend eating here.More
