Cuisine: A La Carte, Family, Indian
Price Point: Mains from $20 - $30

From humble beginnings as a small shop in Rotorua, Great Spice Indian Restaurant has flourished in Tauranga and is serving authentic Indian specialities in Papamoa.

As the name suggests, they know a thing or two about flavour! Years of experimenting and trialling different combinations has meant each plate is spiced to perfection. What's more, it's the perfect place to mark any special occasion; their glamorous dining room is comfortable as well as communal. Settle yourself next to a pristinely white tablecloth under a sky full of stars... no really, their ceiling is decorated with tiny, twinkling fairy lights!

The question is, how hot can you take it? Are you a 'mild' kind of person or an 'Indian hot' champion? Once you've made your decision, peruse the menu which features all kinds of mains with a variety of meats. You've got lamb, chicken, goat, beef vindaloo, saagwalas, kormas and madras to choose from, and that's just the tip of the iceberg!

There are also seafood specialities like butter scallops swimming in a creamy tomato gravy, prawn masala and Goan fish curry. And like any good Indian restaurant, they absolutely boss the vegetarian menu. If you fancy something sweet to round off your meal, why not order in a chocolate naan? It's as good as it sounds!
