Visited here two days ago. Ordered some entries, mains and a beer.
Entries – Chicken Tikka was uncooked. Samosa was extremely good value for money.
Mains – Both the Butter Chicken (something I hardly eat) and Dhal was really good. Aloo Mattar was ok.
Roti was not properly cooked.
Service was ok but they seemed to be over-booked and under-staff.
The lady serving us did try her best and was apologetic.
The Chicken Tikka experience was something that left a bad taste so I don’t think I’ll be returning.
One star for the fact that the lady tried hard. Probably 1.5 stars would be a better score.
Been ordering take aways from here for 2 years and they’ve always been courteous, friendly and made a damn nice feed. Only thing I’d question, as I would with just about any other Chinese/Thai/Indian restaurant, is the amount of meat they put in. But value for money 8 out of 10.
We went their at about 2:00pm on Monday 15th July. The rude waiter told us that they we were too LATE EVEN THOUGH the sign on the door listed open, we had to request the waiter to let us dine because we had travelled all the way from Taupo. We ordered two servings of samosas. The waiter said we were only allowed two plates for three persons even though there was four samosas. When he FINALLY served the samosas, he put on a clear fake smile and banged the plates on the table.
Not going back there again
Best god dam Indian I’ve ever eaten. I have been on a long adventure, looking for the best Indian food across the land and I finally have found this glorious palace that is called SMART INDIA. Highly recommend to all, life is complete!
Whenever we feel like Indian food, we don’t eat anywhere else but here. The menu range is great, the food is always freshly made and the quality is excellent. When it is not too busy, the owner always comes out to see if everything is ok and when you become a regular face, he always recognises you with a smile and/or wave when you arrive and leave. Great, friendly, warm service and delicious food. What more can we ask for!
Love the food, the service and the reasonable prices! In my opinion this is the best indian in the Bay… butter chicken is delish, hydrabadi is a family favourite as are the madras and punjabi dishes and the mixed entree platter for 2 is great value for money! Cant go wrong with smart india – we just keep going back for more!
We have been dining at this Indian restaurant for a few years now and this is quite frankly the best Indian restaurant in the Mount and Tauranga areas. Simply put, the food is always fresh, delicious, appetising and beautifully cooked and prepared, but the service is also consistently good and the waiting service always polite, courteous and helpful. The prices are very affordable with a range of sumptuous Indian dishes – if you have not tried proper Indian food before or are wanting to dine at the Bay’s best kept Indian food secret – then get on over into the Smart India Restaurant because you will not be disappointed with the food there!
Best Indian in Tauranga area which I have been to. Have been here around 10 times . Often order Chicken Tikka masala and veg dishes which are always great. The owner and the staff always provide good service. The naan bread is always good and leave feeling like money well spent.
I have eaten here many times and have never been disappointed yet. No matter what you choose from the menu it is delicious. We have had people who do not want hot spicy food and have been able to order mild variations and enjoyed their meals. The service is wonderful and the authentic music is great. If you are visiting the Mount a meal at Smart India is a must do.
Our office are regulars for the $10 lunches which are brilliant value for money and more than enough quantity. My favourite is the Chicken Do Pyaza which is packed with flavour. Havent been for sit-down, but definitely will soon. The staff are extremely polite and thankful for your custom. Beats all the others I have tried in Pap/Mt area hands down.
Our family love Indian take away. We’ve tried many from this area and this is by far the best. They are very polite and service is fast. Food is delicious and prices are better than others in the Mt area. You won’t be disappointed!
I’ve been eating here on occasions for well over 3 years and this place is my indian restaurant of choice out of the numerous places I’ve tried in Tauranga. You just can’t get a better balance of flavours within the food than the chef achieves here.
decor is very basic but the food here is fantastic. try the chicken punjabi or the paneer mutter with mushrooms. delish. service is always very pleasant and the food is consistently good.
Very friendly and respectful staff, consistent food, good prices. Everything you’d expect from a great Indian restaurant. We keep coming back – that’s the best review an establishment can get!
Excellent, Best Indian we have had in New Zealand & Overseas (USA)thus far. Food is delicious, generous, and priced reasonably. Service is also good. Recommend A+++
Went with a colleague who likes extremely hot curry, he was satisfied with his dish as was I (Try the Lamb or Chicken Hyadrabadi)
The surroundings are a little plain but don’t let that put you off.
