We had a fantastic time at Indian Affair. Thank you to the friendly and welcoming staff! My sister and brother-in-law have spent years living in India and have experienced many Indian restaurants back home in NZ - tonight they couldn't speak highly enough of how authentic and enjoyable they found the food. Thanks again, Indian Affair!

First ones in the restaurant but this soon changed and created an awesome atmosphere. Staff were attentive and happy to advise on the expansive menu. Food was served in a timely manner, hot, fresh and nicely presented. Great flavours and good portion size. We felt like valued customers and would recommend.

We have tried other Indian restaurants, but we always go back to Indian Affair. In our opinion, the vegetable pakoras are the best in Taupo. Tasty and moist. The Butter Chicken is always consistently full of flavour and my favourite, lamb sagg had my taste buds jumping with every mouthful. We will keep going back and we recommend you do too.

This was our first experience using first table. We were on holiday and so glad we came across it. We will definitely use again.

We love Indian cuisine and have been to many restaurants. The food at Indian Affair was perfect and the service was great. What a bonus getting 50% off the food bill. Thank you!

Welcomed with a genuine smile we were treated to fabulous service and food. I would suggest that some money needs to be spent on the interior, but this would not stop me from eating here

Great service & an unrushed leisurely dinner which we appreciated, thank you. The mixed platter & samosa chats had as entrees by our party of 4 were AMAZING & so filling that we struggled with our mains! However mains were judged by all to be delicious, although in all honesty I have had much better Biryani but it was certainly okay. Thank you for a lovely evening & our friends who live in Taupo said they would go back in a flash & so will we next time we visit! :-)

We were surprised at how busy it was at Indian Affair when we arrived for the first table at 5.30pm on Saturday, and although the service was a little expectedly slow, we couldn't fault a thing.
My vegetable pakoras were the best I have ever had, they were super tasty, I'll be going back for these a lunch time.
My husband had prawn pakoras and butter chicken, which he enjoyed immensely, and I had the Lamb Saag OMG the lamb was juicy tender and oh so tasty.
For sure we will be going back for more.

My brother recommended this place to us while we were in town. We were lucky enough to grab a first table and we weren't disappointed. The staff were very welcoming and the ambience is relaxing and classy. The food was delicious, it came out of the kitchen quickly and it was lovely and hot. The mango lassi was one of the best I've ever had and the garlic naan was perfect.
