We had an amazing dinner at The India in Tuakau. Everything that we ordered tasted fantastic, the food came out so fast and the service was great. This is 100% our all time favourite place to get Indian food and we will absolutely be coming back!

Our first - first table experience at the India in Tuakau last night. Great and friendly service, they were most accommodating . The food was plentiful and the samosas I had were homemade and the best i've tasted anywhere! We will be back.

Prior to first table I had no idea about this restaurant.

The India Restaurant is located in a little town called Tuakau. You can easily spot it.

The ambience of the place is very nice. The staff and owner are very friendly.

The best part is the food. Best food in the franklin area. Wide range of choices.

It's small, cosy. Good enough for a little party. I would highly recommend it.

Dine in or take away. Give this place a chance. I would definietly be going back with my family.

I took my Mum and she loved it - always a great experience for our family here. The India have an impressively large menu that also caters for the fussiest 3 & 6 year olds.

Nice food and great service. First time to the joint and was impressed the way they welcomed the regulars (looked like they had a few regulars).
We went in with my parents and my 23months old son and the staff were very accommodating with him.
Well done team.

The onion Bhaji were yummy :) loved the samosa's too. My partner and I ended up sharing a main because I was so full off the starters. Next time, we will order the butter chicken medium and not mild because it was a bit too sweet. The mango lassi was delicious!

Morena First Table ... India Restaurant Tuakau was our target for the second visit within a month and as usual fantastic Service and delicious food again. My brother was over from Melbourne told him about the India Restaurant he has never been to an Indian Restaurant or even tasted the food, he was so impressed he couldn't stop talking about it even the next day he is now going to register on First Table in Melbourne when he returns home.. I couldn't thank you enough for you hospitality absolutely awesome, keep doing what your doing now .. cause it's working.
Will be visiting again ... from us All ... :0)

Just lovely - have been meaning to try this place and glad I finally did, the ambiance is lovely ( very romantic ) and the service was great . oh and the food was YUMMY

Just be careful though as each table had some water bottles on it - I was about to open it.. then noticed the word sparkly on it so thought to ask if it was free.. it was not. - no idea how much I would have been charged otherwise

Enjoyed my mother's day evening spent here at the India. The food was excellent. My children thoroughly enjoyed their butter chicken. I too enjoyed my mango curry. The tandoori chicken is to die for. Will definitely be returning.

We had heard a lot of good things about The India in Tuakau and when we saw that they were on First Table we jumped at the chance to give it a try.

So, so happy that we did because The India in Tuakau is the best Indian food that we have had in a very long time. Definitely worth the hour long drive!

The entrees that we ordered were delicious, especially the Paneer tikka. That is definitely something I would order again. The mains were just amazing. I usually order my dishes medium and my husband loves to get indian hot so we compromised and got all three (yes three, we couldn't resist) of our curries kiwi hot. No regrets. The spices in the curries were all so full of flavour it made that little extra heat so worth it.

The whole time we were there, people were coming in and out of the takeaway side of the restaurant and after eating here I can understand why. If I lived in Tuakau, I would be ordering from The India all the time too!

We will definitely be back and highly recommend others give it a try.
