Not our first, and most definitely not our last, visit to this excellent restaurant. Just changing the type of rice, on advise of the wait staff, changed our experience despite mainly ordering the same curries we know quite well by now.

We love coming to Masters of India - we are always greeted with a smile, and absolutely love the assortment of different curries to choose from. Whether we choose unfamiliar or familiar dishes, they have never disappointed us.

A most warm welcome in a beautiful setting. The butter chicken was the best ive ever eaten, something quite special in the sauce, as was a delightful prawn masala. Highly recommend this beautifully presented restaurant!

Fantastic service and food!
Mixture of starters, (prawn, chicken, paneer, lamb) curries, rice and naan breads, all equally delicious

We love Master if India, definitely the best Indian restaurant in town! The staff are so helpful and polite, always right there if you need them. Food comes out in a very timely manner and tastes absolutely delicious (I just wish I could finish it all!) . 10/10 for sure.

We had a lovely time in Master of India. I thought the service was very good and friendly. We couldn't see what we wanted on a starter menu, but the waiter said it was no problem and we had a yummy soup that we so wanted for starters. Main course didn't dissapointed either. Great flavours and textures - we loved everything about this place. I can certainly recommend this restaurant.

We were greeted with a smile, seated at a nice table away from any drafts on a cold night. We particularly love the vegetarian combo starter! We got served large portions of excellent curries, that left us too full for dessert. We will come again and again...

There was a great variety of dishes on the menu. There were three of us and we tried three types of Balti curry which we had not had previously. They were very tasty and the helpings were generous.
The restaurant could improve its ambiance by removing a lot of the fluorescent lighting but the service was friendly and by the number of Indian people eating on the night, the food must be genuine Indian!
Certainly worth a visit.

My husband and I were visiting Taupo and took a local friend out to this dinner, having heard good reports about Master of India. Before we even stepped through the door we were warmly welcomed. Service was friendly, quick and efficient. And then the food arrived! My husband is a fan of beef vindaloo and orders it whenever he can. He reckoned this was the best he ever tasted. Our friend and I shared a chicken and a lamb dish, can't remember the names, both super delicious. Ice creams for dessert, quite cheap yet generous servings of very tasty ice cream. Wholeheartedly recommend this restaurant.

Excellent food, with a great range to choose from for both meat eaters and vegetarians. Wonderful service with staff genuinely interested how we wanted our food (spiciness) and drinks (with ice or not) and accommodating when we requested no straws in our drinks.

This was our first time dining at Master of India. There are so many Indian Restaurants in Taupo and of all that I have tried, this definitely has to be one of my favourites. The food was beautiful, and the service was faultless. Best mango lassi I've had in a long time! Excellent value for money, and the restaurant itself is nicely set up. We will definitely be back.
