We dine at the Indian cafe quite regularly, and it NEVER fails to satisfy. Top quality food (the meat is always perfectly cooked and tender), generous portions, and excellent service. Great atmosphere, and sheltered outside tables for those lovely sunny NZ days. Not to be missed.

The owner of the B&B where we were staying recommended The Indian Café so we walked over for dinner. We had lamb vindaloo, palak paneer, garlic naan and a bottle of Shiraz. The food was hot and spicy just like we ordered and the service was good.

We eat here a lot and always love the food and the portion sizes are huge. Tonight I mistakenly put in an order to collect at the wrong branch and thet sorted it all out for me even though it was completely my fault. Best Indian in Nelson.

Seriously, it’s the best Indian restaurant in Nelson!

Their dishes are lovingly prepared, wonderfully seasoned and 100% delicious. You can dine in and takeaway, and they have very generous portions.

My husbands favourite is butter chicken and I love the lamb sagwala.

I fully recommend getting the banquet meal takeaways for two or more people. You get a selection of entree’s, dipping sauce and your choice of curry per person.

One of the Best Indian Restaurants I've Been To. Nice layout with different rooms. Tasty food comes in little metal dishes. Naan bread for days.
