I had a lunch special, korma beef medium and it was really delicious. The beef was tender. The taste just bursts in your mouth. The price was worth it.

Service was very quick which suited us though it seemed that the staff were accustomed to moving customers through and this may have detracted were we not pressed for time. Food was very satisfactory. Good size portions, hot, right... More

I have been to Bollywood for lunch many times. They offer the usual range of Indian foods, with a very good value lunch special. I found them to be good value for money, and the food always good.

We have visited here several times now and every time the food has been excellent. The service is great, with attentive and helpful staff. This could almost go into the cheap-eats section, depending on what night of the week you visit. This is a great local eatery that could easily be visited on a weekly basis!

Popped back with the family. This is a very comfy restaurant that easily caters for both small and large groups. Friendly helpful staff and yummy Kingfisher beer on tap!! Attentive friendly staff looked after us and the curries were very very nice. Thanks Bolliwood Takapuna, back soon.
