My husband and I went there for his birthday, as he LOVES Indian food. We both had a great time, the food is tasty, we tried several dishes and all of them were delicious. The staff was very friendly, and didn't mind us taking ages to order ( there is SO. MUCH. to choose from...). I recommend the platters to share, as it lets you try a variety of things. Perfect birthday dinner!!!

By far the best Indian in Napier . Tucked away in central NAPIER away from the hustle and bustle . The choice and quality are amazing and the friendly staff are very attentive to our needs . We had the mixed starter for 2 and it was all cooked perfectly - massive portion but always left feeling comfortably full from another excellent meal . Try it , your never go anywhere else

The food here was amazing! Absolutely loved it. I read in another review to try the Bollywood Special, which we did and that is a dish packed with flavour. The cheese and garlic naan bread was freshly cooked and was the best EVER! A great food experience and great customer service.

Super awesome menu with some things to discover (I will need to go back to try more), attention to detail with quality tableware etc, cooked to perfection (try the ocean trio -
perfectly cooked scallops) pity we were the only ones there (Monday) but suited us at the time and meant we had the full attention of the very friendly team. Thanks so much, we will be back!

The restaurant was really busy, but we had a lovely meal with excellent service. We started with the Tandoori Platter which we thoroughly enjoyed and then both ordered curries. The portion sizes are good, you will not leave hungry! The front of house staff worked very hard but all our food/drinks were served with a smile and we were regularly asked if everything was ok or if we needed anything else.

Beautiful, comfortable and just a good environment to be in and the food was yumm! Definitely going there again.
The only annoying thing was that the waitress acted like we didn’t tell her we booked through First table and still tried to charge us the full amount! Probably need to make it clear at first

We booked a table for 3 on Friday night. Bollywood Stars Napier is our favourite restaurant in Napier and the quality and service has always been consistent and of a very high quality. We ordered a platter to share between three and Butter chicken and Goat with Naan. The servings are generous.
Thank you Shyni and her team for looking after us, we highly recommend this restaurant.
