Tauranga's secret ingredient: Review of the Great Spice Tandoori Indian Restaurant & Bar.

Scenic views of the bright blue sea along Tauranga’s magnificent coastline lead you to 4/44 Bureta Road- home to exquisite ethnic restaurant Great Spice Tandoori Indian Restaurant & Bar. The fully licensed restaurant is Tauranga’s secret ingredient and a hidden gem that is definitely worth the trip.

My recent lunch meeting at the restaurant has left me craving more! The minute I walked through the door, I was greeted with exuberant smiles. A lovely waiter escorted me to the seat where sparkling white plates, shiny cutlery, and rosebud shaped napkins adorned the table.

Eyes widened, I stared at the seven-page menu. What do I order? As an Indian, I’ve tried all the classics, but this mammoth of a menu described a vast array of delicious Indian delicacies, some of which I hadn’t even heard of before! Tandoori Prawn, Lamb Dhansag, Chilli Garlic Scallops, Tandoori Chicken Salad, and more. I salivated as I read on.

My appetite was fixed on a Mango Chicken Curry and Garlic Naan. As I eagerly awaited my lunch, the friendly waiter kindly served refreshingly cold drinks which were a blessing on a scorching summer’s afternoon.

The restaurant exuded an exceptionally welcoming ambience with tranquil traditional Indian music and stunning red & gold interior design. The entire place was kept squeaky clean and presentable, including the washroom.

When my meal had arrived, I was in awe. The vibrant orange curry, the soft white rice, and naan looked like an artwork on the plate. The dish emanated a heavenly aroma. With a creamy mango paste and tender chicken pieces, it was incredibly rich in flavour. The best Mango Chicken I have ever tasted!
