They also offer various pizzas in additional to the Indian food. A little pricey, so not an every day kind of place, but very food food and very prompt service.

Service was ok and food was great, no complaints other than it's a little pricey so maybe not for a big family regular stop.

Excellent excellent service, awesome selection of food. Onion bajis are the best! The curries were fantastic. I eat Indian perhaps 3 times a week being vegetarian and this one I highly recommended. My partner eats meat and he love doing the meat versions.

I had not been to Dargaville for several years but spent Waitangi weekend there. I had an excellent meal in this restaurant. The food was interesting, fresh, well presented and very good value. The service was friendly and efficient. There is not a great range of eating places in Dargaville and I felt lucky to have made such a good... More

The food was pretty average but the service was far from a good experience. We ordered a Bombay pizza and a chicken Madras curry. The waiter was friendly enough to our faces but then went to the chef and started mocking me very loudly. They must have thought that nobody in the restaurant could understand them speaking in Hindi. We... More

Was always hit and miss with meat quality in curries, but has lately gone really downhill with poor quality meat every time and much smaller portion sizes for the $16-17 price tag. Too expensive for the average food it has become.

while touring NZ we made a lunch stop at Shiraz... two of us had traditional indian chicken and beef meals, the other two ordered pizza.... no complaints, all was hot and well spiced... not too expensive.... esp. since we came around lunchtime... the only surprise was that our chicken and beef did not come with rice... so we ordered it...

We stopped here on our way up to omapere. My partners parents were visiting from France. We were seated immediately and the food reached us promptly and was very good and quite authentic. However upon paying - after going back to ask for an itemised receipt found that we had been charged an extra 56 dollars for a bottle of... More

On our way to the Wiapoua Forest from Auckland, we stopped in Dargaville to just look around and have some lunch. Despite being a Saturday afternoon, the majority of businesses were closed. One restaurant that was open was the Shiraz Pizza and Indian Restaurant. The concept of an Indian pizza place was too unique to pass up so we decided... More
