Friendly service, best butter chicken I’ve ever had!

The food here is amazing. Well worth travelling for and it's the best Indian food we have ever had. It gets very busy here because of how popular it is and there is a little bit of a wait time but the food more than makes up for it. We always recommend this place to family and friends!

We had a superb dinner, service was perfect, so nice to see our waitress dress in costume, a lovely touch. We highly recommend The Indian Restaurant and we shall return.

We have heard great things about The India Restaurant and finally made the trip in - we were lucky to have found it on a Saturday night available on First Table! The restaurant was fully booked on this particular night and apparently on the Sunday night as well - quite the hot spot with locals! Service was great. Food was great. Friendly and attentive staff. Will be back again (even if not First Table!)

Why go into Auckland when we have the best Indian food in Tuakau!

- dined at The India Restaurant on

Second time in 2 weeks and this time we went with friends. It was great, food and service. Definitely becoming one of our local favs

- dined at The India Restaurant on

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.

- dined at The India Restaurant on

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)
