I decided to mix it up tonight and got star of india. It is amazing!! I tried the mild butter chicken which tasted sweet and the chicken was sooo tender it basically fell apart while I ate it. And the naan bread. Ive only tried it once before but absolutely loved it. I would prefer it more hot though like spicy hot :)
You definitely see me in there again

Didn’t want to cook tonight…so gave this newer Indian restaurant takeaway menu in Taradale a go – went with the mild option on mango chicken, butter chicken, lamb korma and every dish was tender and delicious. Rice and poppadoms thrown in…particularly enjoyed the mushrooms and peas. Huge naan breads and also beautifully tasty. Would be our choice from now on. Thank you.

As a newly opened Indian restaurant on the main drag of Taradale village, competing with established Red Chillies across the road and down the way, it will be interesting to see how Star of India fares.
Our greeter forgot to smile, but as she was a young girl, perhaps she just needs further training?
After that, what seemed like the owner took over serving. He was pleasant and accommodating; and the menu had the typical Indian fare. We branched out from our usual Rogan Josh and Butter Chicken and tried Lamb Kadai (diced lamb cooked in special spices and herbs with tomato) and Bhuna Ghost (yes I liked the name: diced lamb in special spices, herbs, onion and tomatoes in thick gravy). I chose Kiwi hot (not Indian hot) and my friend chose medium. We also ordered roti (came deep not pan fried) and onion kulcha (naan stuffed with chopped onion, spices and herbs).
I’d ordered hot forgetting I didn’t have sour cream on hand, so had to ask for raita. As a nice touch, we didn’t have to pay extra for this.
As I’ve found normal for Indian restaurants, the main dishes came in metal containers, and the rice was heaped in a bowl. We helped ourselves and the meat was nice and tender, and the heat of the dish didn’t mask the taste of my Bhuna Ghost. There was more than enough, although my waxy companion reckons she counted only nine pieces of meat…I did steal a couple of hers though, and they were decent-sized chunks – in both our meals.
Water was complimentary, and the drinks menu was fine, but I found the prices too high – more like high-class restaurant prices – so I stuck with the water. Perhaps there is some business formula when setting drinks prices I’m unaware of, but if the beer or wine was cheaper, I would have bought some. I think it’s BYO but you’ll have to check both that and the cost of corkage as I can’t find it on the menu I brought home.
You cannot order half portions inside, but you can from the takeaway menu. The decor is a bright and inviting orange, the chairs, although common, are large and comfy as.
For $20 each, it was a nice dinner, the owners were nice, and there is a buy 10 mains get one free card available.
Will recommend to my friends.

Fantastic restaurant, food and staff. The food was delicious, possibly the best Indian in Napier. I have tried a variety of meals from this Indian restaurant, butter chicken, chicken madras and chicken vindaloo. All were perfect and their Naans are to die for. Definitely recommended.
