It’s everything they say it is and some. We took our friends with us who had been there before, but we got them to try dishes they wouldn’t normally try. Everything was super tasty and fresh. We will be going again for sure

Indian Delights truly was "delightful"
We received a warm/friendly welcome and seated by the window with an amazing view overlooking the lake.
Food was excellent and our server was exceptional.
Overall a fabulous dining experience enhanced by excellent service.
Would highly recommend.

We have so many Indian restaurants in Taupo, but this one is by far the best. The food is always amazing. Full of flavour, hot (temperature and spice if you want!), and quick to come out. The service is even better. The staff are so friendly and check on you often to make sure everything is up to par, and they are the most polite people ever. They make you feel extremely welcome.
We can't wait to go back!

Each year we visit Taupo , we also visit Indian Delights....
Stunning window view across the lake and delicious food.
Full range of special coffees available - all $8, with your liquor choice.
A must visit place on First Table when in Taupo.
There is a lift for those with stairs difficulties

Great Indian dinner! Were greeted promptly and given a nice window seat. We ordered lots of different entrees instead of mains and everything was very tasty - highlight was the chilli mountain chicken. No problems with service and would definitely dine here again.

Reasonable food quality and service
We loved the nice lake view. Especially the restaurant is on upstairs. We even have better lake view than most other restaurants
But I would suggest their waiter better explain to customer the portion of their rice. The size actually can serve up to 3 people, but they never mention.
So, we ordered 2 X plain rice that end up wasted nearly half of them.

We had a lovely experience at Indian Delights. We hadn’t been there for over two years because there are so many choices for Indian in the area. The food was delicious and the service was amazing. Always checking to see if we were enjoying our food or needed our drinks refilled. Would definitely go back. The view is amazing.

Great experience at this restaurant. Greeted at the top of the stairs and seated immediately. Food is top notch and I have dined at a few Indian restaurants! This is my new favourite place to go.

Our meal was lovely and my lamb was very tender. Too much rice for my sister and I, we could have shared one. Staff were very attentive, service was great. Easily recommend Indian Delight as a restaurant to go to. Shona.
