When you drive into Taupo you don't have a lot of choice. It's all commercial or a chain...Pizza, Pasta, Buffet, Coffee and Indians we know all the names. We plumped for Indian and The Master. I have to say the service and food was outstanding. We let the waitress guide us and I have to say we had one of... More

The server taking our order was attentive and prompt. I love Indian food and have become used to seeing oil at the top of most curries BUT not... More

My family (Indians with super high standards for Indian food!) had an absolutely incredible dinner at Master of India. And not just because we had a hankering for a home cooked meal after two weeks of traveling. Master of India cooks up delicious and highly traditional classics -- some of the best restaurant Indian food we've ever had. We highly... More

We have had some very mixed quality Indian food in New Zealand. This is definitely one of the very best we have tried. We stopped here for lunch on our way through, they have a great lunch menu, good sized, but not over sized lunch portions, with good choices available. Couldn't fault the food or service, would definitely recommend.

Thank Ikorel
