Authentic Indian eats have landed in the whale-watching capital of NZ. Fresh spices, craft beers and a charcoal oven pumping out naan bread left, right and centre make Kaikoura Indian Restaurant a great spot for an informal supper.

Open, airy and spacious, this eatery caters perfectly for exciting reunions and special occasions. Minimalist in style with a quiet sort of elegance, the focus here is on the food. Splendid company will do the rest.

To begin, get the gang around some tandoori chicken, some vegetable pakoras or an immense mixed platter stuffed with all kinds of Indian goodies. And with a vegetarian platter too, it's the best way to warm up to the main event...which is curry heaven!

Chicken, lamb, seafood and vegetables find a new home in tantalising gravies and fiery spices atop a mound of fluffy basmati rice. As well as the classic butter chicken, vindaloos, bhunas and kadais, seafood makes a strong case with butter prawns and fish masala. Alternatively, their nutritious vegetarian curries experiment with paneer, pulses and vegetables with remarkable effect. Don't waste a drop and order one of their nine naans to soak up all the good stuff.
