Bolliwood (Takapuna, North Shore), at the heart of Takapuna, is the most popular Indian restaurant located in Takapuna.
Indian food is a fabulous combination of rich creamy curries with fluffy rice and tasty breads. The cuisine is as varied as India's vast terrain and its people. This is complemented by chutney and pickle dishes which are the perfect and indispensable accompaniments to the meal.
To most, Indian food means a hot chilli base curries, but this is a great misconception. Generally, the Northern dishes are mild and creamy e.g. Butter Chicken, Kormas and Tandoori meals which are ideal for the first time Indian experience or for children.
The Southern dishes come from the hotter parts of India, where the dishes are chili based and have heavier spicing, as they were originally used to preserve food in the hot climate. Southern dishes include the perspirational Vindaloos and the Madras curries.
An ideal introduction to the Indian meals is the Banquet style meal. This allows you to sample a selection of food with varying spices and flavours. There are three different entrees and four main meals with rice, breads and accompaniments.
Indian cuisine is best accompanied by rice, bread and side dishes e.g. Raita, Salad, Chutney and Pickles. Traditionally all of our meals are placed in the centre of the table to allow each guest to share the different and varying taste of each dish.
Note that most of our meals can be made MILD, Medium or Hot taste. The only exceptions are the Vindaloos which traditionally come out Hot.
Should you require any assistance in choosing the right dish for your taste buds, our staff would be happy to assist.
We hope you will enjoy your dining experience at the Palace of India and will return to dine with us again in the future.

Good and tasty food, and we were pleased with the specials. I was quite happy when I went with one friend. Service however was a let down with a group of 22. Poor communication about what curries and drinks were part of a special made for a somewhat frustrating dining experience, and service felt disorganised.

Delicious takeaway, great flavours. The staff were unfriendly and rude though. Maybe the were just having a bad day. 4 1/2 stars for food less one star for service.

Excellent service. Lovely decor, music, ambiance. The doors opening onto the street with fairy lights makes you feel like you are somewhere much more exotic than on a city street. Service a bit slow but as it was valentines evening it was busy and so understandable. We were a table of 7 and one diners entree was served at least 5 minutes after the rest. The food was very tasty and every diner was happy with their meal.
