Swagat India, Maungaraki

Top dish: Lamb Korma.

Top review: “Probably the most delicious Indian food I have ever had! My husband and I order from here regularly and we have never been disappointed. They serve nice, large portions and the medium (Kiwi) hotness is fantastic as gives a nice zing, but you can still taste all the amazing spices and flavours. We can recommend the Chicken Tikka Masala and the Lamb Korma is also excellent. Also, the staff are always really helpful and friendly.”

Chilis Bistro & Tandoor, Newlands

Top dish: Tikka Masala

Top review: “Best Indian takeout I think I have ever had! I find I’m disappointed with most Indian meals due to a lack of meat. Its often all sauce. I was very impressed with a generous serving of meat in the curries we ordered, and the naan’s and entree were super tasty too. So much so, it is our new favorite Indian takeout place! Top work :)”
